A Rare Miss by Ignatius,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Director: A Novel (Hardcover)
I'm a huge fan of David Ignatius and was anxiously looking forward to this offering. I can't recommend it, however. The main characters are underwhelming; the plot often plods along; the "geek" factor is likely to lose a lot of readers as it often did me; and the conclusion is so far out in left field to not be credible. I was tempted on a number of occasions to put the book down but I didn't always thinking that this marvelous author would pull the chestnut out of the fire -- but he didn't do it this time.
