    1 thought on “Missing Man: The American Spy Who Vanished in Iran”

    1. It took me a while to finish this book. Not at all because it was boring, but because of the amount of names and information it holds. Many times, you have to read a page several times and go back to check who is who.Bob Levinson was an FBI agent for 30 years and decided to retire, get his pension and look for other jobs on the side to finance his children studies. As an FBI agent, he was making less than $100,000 a year and it was impossible to send his seven kids to college. His pension would [...]

    2. For anyone who watched the excellent TV miniseries of John le Carré’s The Night Manager, this story may sound familiar. An untrained “consultant” works for a female spymaster on a rogue assignment outside of the regular HQS chain of command, to go after a shadowy but powerful bad guy. But this is the “real world” version, so don't expect a suspenseful but ultimately happy ending. Instead, it’s a realistic portrayal of a well-intentioned amateur who is in over his head and totally ou [...]

    3. To the family and friends of this fellow heart goes out to them. May he be reunited with them forthwith and this sad chapter in their lives come to an end. Ken Megale

    4. This book was okay and fairly interesting. It didn't feel like it flowed that well much like my review. It also ended rather abruptly, sort of like

    5. Barry Meier has done a great job putting together this book by getting information from several of the principles who were in on the disappearance of Bob Levinson, an American spy (who at different times worked for both the FBI and the CIA). The author follows Bob's life from before his disappearance through to the present day. The book really had me thinking and at times had me angry regarding the way our government "takes care" of its own.I received this book free from First Reads.

    6. A thriller of a read about Bob Levinson, a CIA contractor who went missing in 2007 after heading into Iran to meet with a secret contact. He remains missing to this day, presumably held by Iran or forces allied with the government, though Iran denies knowledge of his whereabouts or current condition. This book does not much new information for those who have followed the case closely, but it is a great summary and an easy read for espionage lovers who want to better understand the case.

    7. For someone who has closely followed the Bob Levinson saga, I found this book to be not just accurate, but to include lots of new information. After reading this, no one can doubt for a moment that Bob remains a hostage to elements at the very top of the Islamic State of Iran leadership, cynically manipulating him and torturing his family.

    8. Factual recounting of the disappearance of CIA contractor Robert Levinson in Iran. The author doesn't have to editorialize to make a case for how unwieldy and dysfunctional the intelligence apparatus is in this country and all over the world, really.

    9. A Jewish-American undercover agent with FBI and CIA backgrounds goes to an Iranian tourist island. Bad idea. He disappears. Overwrought family back in U.S. tries to elicit information about him. Nothing. FBI also belatedly tries. Again nothing. Criminals, arms traffickers and con men. CIA infighting, bumbling and confusion. FBI incompetence and sloth. What kept me going was "Is he alive and will he be released?" Many foreign proper names inhabit this book and I had trouble keeping track. A refer [...]

    10. Please note that this book review was heavily redacted by the CIA's Publication Review Board.This is an excellent book about the disappearance of Bob Levinson, a retired FBI agent [text was redacted here]. This story hits close to home for me, as I was working at the CIA when Mr. Levinson vanished. A lot of the details in the book bring back old memories, [text was redacted here]. At the time, I was new to the office I was working in, [text was redacted here]. Years later, while posted on a fiel [...]

    11. A superbly reported and unsparingly told account of a former F.B.I. agent, Robert Levinson, who took one risk too many, and the civil servants who failed him when he disappeared in Iran. This has been compared to a spy novel, but with a cast of characters that includes a broken down arms dealer; a Russian oligarch who possesses everything but permission to travel to America; a Kurdish big shot with ties to a terrorist leader; a fugitive American assassin who likes Ray Charles and Chris Rock; cro [...]

    12. Spent this July 4th holiday reading this book. Wow. What an important, harrowing read. God bless Bob's family as they continue to be in a state of limbo. Shame on politics for using this man as a pawn in their game. I hope Bob is still alive and is reunited with his family. If he is not, I pray his family gets that closure. I'm sure Bob would give anything to have never gotten on that flight to Kish. So sad. I will continue to follow this story and hope for the best.

    13. "For all the money and power at stake in this underworld of global resource-and-espionage intrigue, the story of the missing man is ultimately the story of absurd connections between the world's elites and their minions."–Jeff Sharlet on Barry Meier's Missing Man: The American Spy Who Vanished in Iran in the Summer 2016 issue of Bookforum To read the rest of this review, go to Bookforum:bookforum/inprint/023_02/1

    14. So detailed I couldn't figure out what was relevant to the story. Hard to follow because of all the details.

    15. Although it was interesting, there were too many characters and details. Almost like reading a very long newspaper article.

    16. Interesting story. I get the need to cite and quote, but the quoting of emails on their entirety was a bit much at times.

    17. I should have researched this ahead of time so I would not be so bummed when the book just ended without them ever finding the guy :(
