    *Starred Review* An aggressive new unit of the CIA, reporting only to the White House, is created to do what its discredited parent agency can't—buy peace in Pakistan's tribal areas. Even better, it is self-funding. It feeds economically sensitive intelligence to a London hedge fund and rakes off the lion's share of the profits, thereby rendering itself completely invisible to Congress and the public. But then the unit's field operatives begin to die, and Sophie Marx, head of counterintelligence, is assigned to plug the leak. Sophie quickly finds herself in peril and in an uneasy alliance with the head of Pakistani intelligence, who also wonders how one group of Pakistani fighters has breached seemingly unbreachable U.S. security. After a quarter-century of journalistic writing about the CIA and the Middle East, Washington Post columnist Ignatius is now better known as a novelist (The Increment, 2009; Body of Lies, 2007), and Bloodmoney will only enhance this recognition. In addition to being a solid page-turner, it offers intriguing characters, a complicated but skillfully explicated plot and a nuanced view of Pashtun tribal culture often at odds with the larger Punjabi population. And as with all of Ignatius' fiction, readers attuned to current events may wonder if he knows things most Americans don't. Ignatius denies this in the acknowledgments, but the tease is part of the appeal. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.
