The company we keep : a husband-and-wife true-life spy story by Robert Baer( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 1,534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inside the CIA, Robert Baer was known as perhaps the best operative working the Middle East. But if his career was everything a spy might aspire to, his personal life was a brutal illustration of everything a spy is asked to sacrifice--he had few non-work friendships, his prolonged absences destroyed his marriage, and he felt intense guilt at spending so little time with his children. Dayna Williamson was just an ordinary California girl, but she was always looking to get closer to the edge. When she joined the CIA, she quickly distinguished herself. Serving in some of the world's most dangerous places, she discovered an inner strength she'd never known--but she also came to see that the spy life exacts a heavy toll. When Bob and Dayna met on a mission in Sarajevo, it wasn't love at first sight--they were both too jaded. As the danger escalated and their affection grew, they realized it was time to leave "the Company." But even then they couldn't know that their most formidable challenge lay ahead.--From publisher description

la historia real de un matrimonio de espías by Robert Baer( )

1 edition published in 2012 in Spanish and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Esta es la más extraordinaria, y a la vez la más real, de todas las historias de espías que jamás se hayan contado. Robert Baer -autor de Soldado de la CIA, que sirvió de base a la película Siryana- y Dayna eran dos agentes de la CIA cuyo trabajo cotidiano consistía en actuar en secreto en los más diversos escenarios del mundo, de Bosnia a Tajikistán, pasando por Beirut o Bagdad, con el fin de participar en conspiraciones, atentados, guerras civiles y asesinatos, en una extraordinaria secuencia de episodios que comienza en Damasco en 1990 y concluye en Lahore en 2008. Dayna y Bob nos hablan con naturalidad y sencillez de estas experiencias, que eran para ellos las habituales de su trabajo, y nos cuentan cómo los riesgos y las emociones compartidos acabaron uniéndoles como pareja. David Ignatius ha dicho que ésta es "la mejor historia real de espionaje que haya leído jamás: combina el riesgo y los peligros del espionaje real, con la estupidez de la burocracia que lo dirige y la dislocación emocional que produce la vida en la clandestinidad"
