A gripping insider’s look at the post-9/11 CIA

In the weeks following the attacks of 9/11, the Central Intelligence Agency received over 150,000 résumés from people wanting to serve their nation. T. J. Waters became one of more than a hundred students admitted into the CIA’s Clandestine Service to become Class 11, the first post- 9/11 training class. Filled with more information about the CIA’s Clandestine Service Training Program than has ever been allowed into the public domain, Waters takes readers behind closed doors, where the trainees learned methods of subterfuge, mastering disguises, how to withstand interrogations, and how to cross into hostile territory undetected—and provides a moving portrait of ordinary Americans with the courage and determination to go to any lengths to protect their country.

“Anyone who wants to know how CIA officers really operate—as opposed to the mythology often seen in the media—will want to read this book.”
—Ronald Kessler, New York Times bestselling author of The CIA at War and Inside the CIA

“Waters and he and the CIA deserve much credit for a book that can only enhance the public’s understanding of the importance of a rejuvenated clandestine service.”
—John Lehman, Washington Post and member of the 9/11 Commission
