True Story of CIA Case Officer In the Middle East.....kind reminds you of "24"'s Jack Bauer.......makes you wonder...........it also tells you what the hell happened to the CIA when we TRULY needed them........no one on the ground in the field where we really needed people......it shows that Washington politics and special interests trump good sense and necessity............fascinating and terrific reading

This to shall pass
This book is a depiction of the CIA in the passing of an era. It is an era of sacrifice and idealism, of an almost childlike faith that the upper echelons will do the right thing, that goodness will prevail. It leaves one with a wistful feeling, even when it describes the flat-footed failures of CIA middle management. We see an organization is transition, and that transition is to a mendacious mediocrity. It fosters a feeling of hopelessness until one realizes that no change is permanent, neither the decline of a noble institution nor its much anticipated rebirth.

Robert Baer digs deep inside the CIA as a former agent. He brings action into his novel - an autobiography - including car chases with KGB forces. He shares the bright side of his career while revealing the dark... he truly gives a open look inside the CIA.
