IN TRUE FACE A Woman's Life in the CIA, Unmasked

by | Read by Barbara Benjamin-Creel

Biography & Memoir • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Barbara Benjamin-Creel's clear voice and strong performance bring Mendez's memoir to life. Mendez began her nearly thirty-year career in the CIA as a "contract wife"--an administrator who was the spouse of a CIA agent. Embarking into this "man's world," she used her brains, grit, and persistence to become an intelligence agent herself and eventually rose to be the chief of disguise. All of this makes for a most interesting account, and Benjamin-Creel is a splendid match of narrator and text. Her voice is never strained or melodramatic, she narrates at an easy-to-follow pace, and her inflection and expression are appropriate. Her skills propel the listener through this audiobook.
