Body of Lies

<p>Roger Ferris is a CIA operative in the Middle East; Ed Hoffman is his control at Langley. Cynicism is everywhere. In Amman, Roger works with Hani Salaam, Jordan&#39s head of security, whose only dictum is "Don&#39t lie to me." The Americans are in pursuit of a cleric who leads a group placing bombs all over Europe. When Hani rebukes Ed&#39s demand that Jordan allow the Americans to use one of Jordan&#39s double agents, Roger and Ed hatch a plan to bring the cleric to them. The plan is complicated by its being a secret from Hani and by Roger&#39s attraction to a local nurse. Satellites and cell phones, bodies and lies: modern warfare.</p>
