Listeners will be disappointed if they are expecting a tense, fast-paced spy novel. Yes, this is an audiobook about a young, female CIA operative charged with spying on the politicians and revolutionaries who are plotting the military coup in Argentina in the mid-1960s. But it's also a beautifully written novel about a young woman who is looking for the strength to accept and appreciate herself. Narrator Elisabeth Rodgers flawlessly portrays Vera as a troubled teenager and as the conflicted more mature operative who is trying to do the right thing in the powder keg of pre-coup Buenos Aires. Rodgers's facility with the Spanish phrases and place names brings to life Vera's experience in Argentina. The result is a captivating listening experience. E.Q.
