I just finished an Advanced Reader's Edition of Barry Eisler's newest thriller "Inside Out," and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was fast paced, engaging, and had a profound insight on certain political controversies going on in the world around us. So not only was it an addictive action yarn, but also a work of fiction that made you think a little about what really happens behind certain closed doors. How much was fiction, and how much of the plot line was real? More on this in a moment, but this is …

A BRILLIANT ACCOUNT CALLED FICTION, BUT IS IT?
He's never failed me yet - Barry Eisler's books have been consistently exciting, gripping, can't-put-down thrillers, especially the John Rain titles. However, with INSIDE OUT he exceeds his own high standards with a revealing look at the netherworld of official torture, killings, and ghosting of detaineees.

En route, Treven deals with not only the rogue agent, a virtual killing machine (when mercenaries set a trap to capture him, the rogue kills …

Some of the best novels I read are ones that seem as if they could be ripped out of the daily headlines of your favorite newspaper or news magazine. Add in behavior and characters that ring true due to past uncovered abuses by the government, and you have the ingredients for a story that makes you wonder if the plot hasn't already been played out in real life. Barry Eisler does that with torture and detainees in his latest book Inside Out: A Novel. I had a really hard time putting the book down, …

In 2007, operatives working out of the Vice-president of the United States' office were informed that there were ninety-two missing videotapes. Those tapes documented the extreme torture of ghost detainees, individuals captured and whisked away to secret prisons, people who simply disappeared. Waterboarding, while documented on the tapes, was not the worst thing that happened to the ghost detainees. Ulrich, the lead operative, crafts a plausible story to spin to the media, which allows everyone …
