The former CIA director doesn't tell all, but what he reveals about his job and the secret agency he directed enters some dark passages. He remembers dry-mouthed rides to brief the president each morning and how he came to drink wine from an antler on a raucous trip to the Russian state of Georgia. Narrator Arthur Morey keeps himself out of the limelight with a treatment void of theatrical voices, relying instead on variations in pitch and tone to sound engaged. Too often, Morey allows himself a truculent voice when the author's words don't justify one. George Tenet reads a preface and a prescient afterword, chilling in its warnings for our future. For being a perceptive personal history written by an experienced spy, this audiobook is a "slam-dunk." J.A.H. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
