“She invades the turf of John le Carré. . . . It is very good.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review

Barrie Mayer, a beautiful Washington literary agent, arrives at London’s Heathrow Airport with plenty of time to make her flight to Budapest, where she’s planning to meet an author. The airport is crowded, but it’s not a scheduling problem that keeps Barrie from getting off the ground.

The doctors call her death a heart attack, but her best friend, Collette Cahill, has her doubts. A CIA agent herself, Collette knows that Barrie was carrying more than just contracts to Hungary. Then Collette gets the order from above: Find out what happened to Barrie. And, more important, what happened to her briefcase.

So Collette sets off on a search that will take her from London to Washington to the Caribbean, from restaurants to psychiatrists’ offices to bedrooms. After all—even CIA agents lose their hearts every now and then. But Collette may lose her life. . . . 

“Her most far-ranging and, arguably, her best.”—New Woman

Truman lived in Manhattan and passed away in 2008.

As a light channeler working with Sananda, Buddha, the four main archangels, Michael, Gabriel Uriel and Raphael, I like a pleasant diversion from my busy metaphysical daytime activities. So Irma r, my Huna friend recommended that I read Murder in the CIA, and I highly recommend this outstanding book. You'll not want to put it down, it keeps your attention riveted for hours! Enjoy!
