3.5 stars. It's dry and disjointed, due mostly to long periods of redacted text. apparently forced on her by the CIA. Plame and her publisher sued over the fact that nearly every bit of what the CIA redacted is out in the wild for anyone to find thanks to Dick Cheney, Scooter Libbie, and several reports. They lost and sadly the book, reader, and my fellow American citizens all suffer for it. The chapter-by-chapter afterword helped, and is vital to filling in some details, but is still dry and somewhat redacted. :Deep Sigh:
