Publisher Description

Call me naïve, but when I was a girl-watching James Bond and devouring Harriet the Spy-all I wanted was to grow up to be a spy. Unlike most kids, I didn't lose my secret-agent aspirations. So as a bright-eyed, idealistic college grad, I sent my resume to the CIA.
Getting in was a story in itself. I peed in more cups than you could imagine, and was nearly condemned as a sexual deviant by the staff psychologist. My roommates were getting freaked out by government investigators lurking around, asking questions about my past.

Finally, the CIA was training me to crash cars into barriers at 60 mph. Jump out of airplanes with cargo attached to my body. Survive interrogation, travel in alias, lose a tail. One thing they didn't teach us was how to date a guy while lying to him about what you do for a living. That I had to figure out for myself.
 
Then I was posted overseas. And that's when the real fun began.

Great read

Lindsay Moran offers a great insight into what one might expect to happen as a CIA officer. She describes training, attitudes, life and her overseas mission from the perspective of a real human being. From her view, being a c/o at the CIA isn't about gadgets and secrecy but rather about surveillance and recruitment. Her writing style is great, light and funny. I guarantee you will enjoy reading it. You might not agree with her views, but you can't deny the factual and descriptive manner in which the book was written.
I wish they'd made a movie out of it.
I read it three times and will remain one of my favorite reads.
