In late 2013, Americans were shocked to learn that a former FBI agent turned private investigator who disappeared in Iran in 2007 had been there on a mission for the CIA. The missing man, Robert Levinson, appeared in photographs dressed like a Guantanamo prisoner and pleaded in a video for help from the United States.

Barry Meier, a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter for The New York Times, draws on years of interviews and never-before-disclosed CIA files to weave 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. Missing Man is a fast-paced story that moves through exotic locales and is set against a backdrop of the twilight war between the United States and Iran, one in which hostages are used as political pawns.
