Forster, I&NS 11.1, calls the book "a pioneering, well-organized and fully documented study of the development of the intelligence system, its approach, mechanics and activities.... He concludes that the regime's intelligence system 'performed fairly efficiently,' and that it became increasingly acceptable as a legitimate part of the State's business."

According to Surveillant 4.4/5, the author shows that the Restoration regime operated an intelligence system using networks on both the local and international levels. "The careers of a number of spies employed by the regime are examined through a series of detailed case studies." Loomie, AHR 101.3, finds Marshall's work to be "carefully researched and well-written"; this is "pioneering research on a controversial subject." Kruh, Cryptologia 19.3, agrees, calling the book an "erudite history and analysis," the "1,399 footnotes and comprehensive bibliography" of which "are testimony to its scholarship."

Petersen notes that the subject matter of this book is "[a]lleged CIA drug running and ties to terrorism." NameBase says "[t]his is one of the better books on Iran-contra, written by three excellent investigative writers.... [T]he heavy footnoting ... makes the book useful as a source that in turn can point to other, more obscure sources."

There are "organizational, technical and professional problems" associated with a failure to understand the nature of IMINT and a "consequent failure to recognize the differences between IMINT and MASINT.... With the disassembly of the NPIC and DIA's Directorate for Imagery Exploitation, there is no longer a shelter for image talent in the Intelligence Community. Scientists and engineers have talked and counted their way into control over a discipline that they do not fully appreciate.... After a decent interval has passed, the Community may openly regret having given cartographic engineers influence over the craft of seeing."
