Book Review: Chief of Station, Congo: Fighting the Cold War in a Hot Zone

Falling somewhere between David Foster Wallace’s The Pale King and Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale, this memoir is a real world look at a CIA operative’s life as part of the staff of a U.S. Embassy. Danger, intrigue and civil service bureaucratic infighting abound, making it an interesting window into the sausage making of foreign policy.  (4 of 5 Stars)
