I really enjoyed this book. The author, Kai Bird, did a spectacular job telling the reader the story of Robert Ames. The details of the book are so well written. Thanks to Ames’ wife, Bird was able to retrieve the letter of his old neighbor and tell his story. I thoroughly enjoyed the inside look at the life of a CIA agent. It was interesting to read how Ames formed bonds with Ali Hassan Salameh, chief of the PLO’s Force 17 intelligence unit and a top operations officer for Arafat. Bird really did his research for this book. If you’re a history enthusiast then I believe you’ll enjoy reading ‘The Good Spy’.
