David
McCloskey

David McCloskey covered Syria as a CIA analyst for six years, from 2008 – 2014 and watched the country descend into unrest, civil war, and state failure. During this time, he wrote near-weekly memos for the President’s Daily Brief (PDB), lived and worked in CIA field stations throughout the region, and briefed senior White House officials, members of Congress, and Arab royalty.

Damascus Station is his first novel.
