"Not only a good read but the best informed
 book on the CIA of the hundreds Iíve perused.  You wonít get names---but something far more important: how it all works."

                                                          --- W. Scott Thompson
                                                                Professor Emeritus of International Politics
                                                                Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts

 

". . .a no-holds barred portrait of a once-great    organization that is undone by a combination of internal arrogance and organizational indifference.  .  .He is at his best when he discusses his "tradecraft," the practices of clandestine activity.  .  . The book is smartly written and richly detailed.  .  .The story comes across as brutally honest and credible.

                                      ---Stephen Morris, The Public Press


 
 "Fresh, sharp, and funny, Costanzo comes in      from the cold to reveal a CIA far more interesting than any Hollywood fiction. . .an unexpectedly fresh and interesting take on a system obscured as much by Hollywood representations as by its own secrecy. . .a rare peek into one of the world's most opaque organizations. . ."

                                   
---Anna Call,  ForeWord Reviews,  Clarion Review

A

"..". . .a commendable report on agency life. . .A fascinating though somewhat censored memoir that also serves as an organizational critique of the CIA."
