The Company We Keep: A Husband and Wife True-Life Spy Story, by Robert Baer and Dayna Baer

Told in alternating voices, this memoir opens a window on life as a CIA spy. Bob worked in such locales as Croatia, Tajikistan and Lebanon and met Dayna in Sarajevo while on a mission. He and Dayna both found that a CIA career was fatal to personal relationships with the required secrecy and long absences. Bob realized if he wanted to pay more attention to the personal side of his life he would have to retire from the CIA. He is also the author of “See No Evil” which was the basis for the film “Syriana.”

    I can’t wait to read this book. I suppose it is a juvenile infatuation with spies. Too much James Bond in my youth. I loved the way Elaine Charles introduced her show on spy books with My name is Charles…… Elaine Charles. Well done Elaine. Left me shaken but not stirred.
