In this second installment of the Falsifiers trilogy, the stakes have gotten higher. Sliv is tasked with daunting missions: help a small Asian country gain its independence, chase a rogue CFR agent, and convince the Bush Administration that Saddam Hussein no longer possesses weapons of mass destruction. Yet, in a post 9/11 world, Sliv and his colleagues are not the only ones tampering with reality. The Pathfinders was awarded the prestigious Prix France Culture Telerama in 2009. It is preceded by The Falsifiers and followed by The Showrunners but can be read independently.
