Thriller Spy | True Crime
In late 2013, Americans were shocked to learn that a former
FBI agent turned private investigator who disappeared in
Iran in 2007 was there on a mission for the CIA. The missing
man, Robert Levinson, appeared in pictures dressed like a
Guantánamo prisoner and pleaded in a video for help from the
Barry Meier, an award-winning investigative reporter for
The New York Times, draws on years of interviews and
never-before-disclosed CIA files to weave together a
riveting narrative of the ex-agent's journey to Iran and the
hunt to rescue him. The result is an extraordinary tale
about the shadowlands between crime, business, espionage,
and the law, where secrets are currency and betrayal is
commonplace. Its colorful cast includes CIA operatives,
Russian oligarchs, arms dealers, White House officials,
gangsters, private eyes, FBI agents, journalists, and a
fugitive American terrorist and assassin.
Missing Man is a fast-paced story that moves through
exotic locales and is set against the backdrop of the
twilight war between the United States and Iran, one in
which hostages are used as political pawns. Filled with
stunning revelations, it chronicles a family's ongoing
search for answers and one man's desperate struggle to keep
his hand in the game.
