A hyper-fast quantum computer is the digital equivalent of a nuclear bomb: whoever possesses one will be able to shred any encryption in existence, effectively owning the digital world. The question is: Who will build it first, the United States or China? The latest of David Ignatius's timely, sharp-eyed espionage novels follows CIA agent Harris Chang into a quantum research lab compromised by a suspected Chinese informant. The breach provokes a mole hunt that is obsessive, destructive, and--above all--uncertain: Do the leaks expose real secrets, or are they false trails meant to deceive the Chinese? Chang soon finds that there is a thin line between loyalty and betrayal, as the investigation leads him down a rabbit hole as dangerous as it is deep. Grounded in the real-world global charge toward technological dominance, The Quantum Spy presents a sophisticated game of cat-and-mouse wired to an exhilarating cyber thriller.… (més)

David Ignatius brings his real life experience in the world of spies to his novels and that makes them more interesting and engaging to me. This was a very well spun tale that had enough ambiguity to keep me guessing through most of the book. The characters may not have been the most complex you will ever encounter but they felt true and their actions felt organic not just like plot devices. I had one small factual error that bothered me but it is only because of where I live. He identifies a meeting spot as being in the "Courthouse" area of Arlington but then later identifies it as being on N. Glebe Road and describes it as Ballston. An odd error and one I quickly got past. ( )

I am used to seeing David Ignatius on TV as a reporter but who knew that he also was a mystery writer. This is a great spy story - a new secret technology, the CIA, NSA and Chinese Intellegence. Before the end everyone seems to be the traitor but even when you know who it is you wonder if everything will work out.
I listened to this book on audio and the narrator added to the story.

Although fiction, the book is well researched on the available details on quantum computing, and presents a plausible scenario whereby the US and China engage in secret competition over dominance in that area. So, a fun read. ( )

Not science fiction, but fiction (on China-vs-USA espionage) involving advances in computer science and physics (quantum computation specifically). The latter aspect was my reason for reading the book. I imagined (confirmed in the concluding acknowledgements) that newspaper columnist Ignatius must have had some expert help in making the technical passages as accurate and interesting as they are. And yes the spy-war story does get very exciting towards the end.

A new author for me. I found the story very plausible but highly technical and involved. The action was minimal but the tension was intense. For a bit of a "Luddite" the immersion into quantum computing was almost overwhelming. I honestly can't say I understand in any better after reading the book - but then again it is not meant to be an instruction manual. ( )
