Yet more than an insider's guide to the life and times of an undercover agent, Blowing My Cover is a story about a highly educated, obviously intelligent yet occasionally insecure young woman trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life, and who she wants to have beside her. As we follow Moran to the "Farm", a six-month training camp where new recruits are forced into alarmingly real POW situations and asked to perform death-defying car chases reminiscent of old Dukes of Hazard episodes, we also witness her extreme loneliness at being cut off from her friends and family and her fear that she'll never meet "the one" and settle down. One of the most poignant scenes happens early on in Moran's training, when she meets up with some friends in New York at a party and realizes she can't even tell her closest confidents what she does for a living.
For anyone who's ever wondered what it really means to be a CIA agent, Moran's tale is a worthwhile read. Better yet, for anyone who's ever wondered what she wants to be when she grows up (even at age 30), Blowing My Cover is an ultimately hopeful story of possibilities. --Gisele Toueg --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I'm glad the author is writing rather than trapped in a job that is unfulfilling. The book is a fascinating journey, and I look forward to reading more of her books.Published 6 months ago by Auroramwj
The book is a breezy read, but I was gaging on the contaminants by chapter three. I had to put this book down and toss it. Glad I only paid a buck for it at a garage sale. Read morePublished 7 months ago by John Gordon
