Breaking Cover: My Secret Life in the CIA and What It Taught Me About What’s Worth Fighting For – Michele Rigby Assad

I was expecting to really enjoy this book, but it disappointed.  The selection and training details related to CIA agents were very interesting, but the descriptions of her deployments had me wanting more.  Additionally, Assad is a Christian and tries to incorporate her beliefs into her story telling with limited success.  It really felt forced rather than a fluid part of the story she was sharing.  The final portion of the book was the best part and details Assad’s work in helping Christians escape from Iraq to Slovakia.

While this complimentary book was provided for review by Tyndale Press, no other compensation was given. All remarks are my personal and honest opinions.
