Thrills, secrets, and danger await in three killer spy stories. Informed by her time as an intelligence officer, Alma Katsu’s novel, Red London, follows CIA agent Lyndsey Duncan as she races against the clock to prevent the most calculated global invasion of our time. In The Peacock and the Sparrow, debut novelist and former CIA operations officer I.S. Berry introduces us to Shane Collins, a CIA spy stationed off the coast of Saudi Arabia who becomes embroiled in conflict, political upheaval, and a budding romance with his informant. In Code Name Blue Wren: The True Story of America’s Most Dangerous Female Spy – and the Sister She Betrayed, Jim Popkin shocks readers with the real life account of Ana Montes, one of the U.S. government’s top intelligence agents for almost 17 years until she was publicly exposed as a secret agent for Cuba.
