  • Loved it

    I stayed up late the first night reading this, until I just couldn’t hold my eyes open any longer. I might have read it right through if I hadn’t been so tired from just inhaling another book before this one. A really good read about a young lady spy for the CIA who goes after bad guy terrorists after 9/11. She later changes jobs to work for the FBI. I found it a good book and hope it might give some young women different goals for the future about making a difference. I found this to be another book I got right through, as I enjoyed it so much and recommend if you like this type of subject. Advance electronic review copy was provided by NetGalley, authors Tracy Walder & Jessica Anya Blau, and the publisher.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The Unexpected Spy

    The Unexpected Spy is a memoir by Tracy Walder with Jessica Anya Blau. Tracy Schandler Walder had a career in both the CIA and the FBI and The Unexpected Spy is her story. I found Ms Walder's book very interesting, but was a little put off at times by the use of ~~~~~~~~ rather than words. I understand the need for her secrecy but would rather had made up names in these spots. I want to thank Net Galley and St Martin's Press for an early copy to review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Candid, eye-opening, and inspiring!

    The Unexpected Spy is the informative, intriguing story of Tracy Walder’s personal and professional experiences, successes, struggles, and accomplishments as a CIA SOO, FBI Special Agent, and beloved history teacher at an all girl’s school. The writing is clear and precise. The characters are intelligent, focused, and driven. And the novel is a compelling, fascinating, introspective tale of one woman’s life as a covert operative in the wake of 9/11. The Unexpected Spy is, ultimately, part memoir, part spy novel that is full of valuable, insightful information into counterterrorism and the roles and efforts of counterintelligence agencies worldwide.
