Breaking Cover by Michele Rigby Assad Review

Breaking Cover: My Secret Life in the CIA and What It Taught Me about What's Worth Fighting for
by Michele Rigby Assad
The CIA is looking for walking contradictions. Recruiters seek people who can keep a secret, yet pull classified information out of others; who love their country, but are willing to leave it behind to head into dangerous places; who live double lives, but can be trusted with some of the nation's most highly sensitive tasks.

Michele Rigby Assad was one of those people.

As a CIA agent, Michele soon found that working undercover was an all-encompassing job. The threats were real. The mission was a perilous one. Trained as a counterterrorism expert, Michele spent over a decade in the agency--a woman leading some of the most highly skilled operatives on the planet, secretly serving in some the most treacherous areas of the Middle East. But deep inside, Michele wondered: Could she really do this job? Was she in the right place at the right time, or had she misunderstood what she thought was God's calling on her life? Did she have what it would take to survive?

The answer came when Michele faced a life-or-death choice--one that had secretly been the plan for her all along.

In Breaking Cover, Michele has at last been cleared to drop cover and tell her story: one of incredible struggle; of thwarted plans and expectations; and most of all, of discovering a faith greater than all her fears.

Cassandra's Review Q&A-

- What did you like about the book and why?  I like the openness and willingness of the author to share about secrets that most people would not especially working for the CIA. 

- What did you not like about the book and why?  The book is centered around God which is perfect for faith based readers, so while I enjoyed it, some may not. 

- What did you learn?  The author was and still is very strong in her mind and spirit. 

- To whom would you recommend this book and why?  Someone who has a thirst for knowledge of the inner working of things far greater then they could imagine. 

I received a complimentary copy.
