This to shall pass

This book is a depiction of the CIA in the passing of an era. It is an era of sacrifice and idealism, of an almost childlike faith that the upper echelons will do the right thing, that goodness will prevail. It leaves one with a wistful feeling, even when it describes the flat-footed failures of CIA middle management. We see an organization is transition, and that transition is to a mendacious mediocrity. It fosters a feeling of hopelessness until one realizes that no change is permanent, neither the decline of a noble institution nor its much anticipated rebirth.

Robert Baer digs deep inside the CIA as a former agent. He brings action into his novel - an autobiography - including car chases with KGB forces. He shares the bright side of his career while revealing the dark... he truly gives a open look inside the CIA.
