In a memoir written as a series of narrative vignettes, a former CIA operations officer recounts his years of danger, intrigue and adventure. This candid and darkly witty memoir recounts an exhilarating life — and a few close brushes with death. With remarkable sangfroid and a humorist’s eye for absurdity, H. K. Roy describes his many strange and risky exploits in his long career with the CIA.
Praise for this book
"Move over, James Bond and George Smiley—this is the real deal, written by a patriotic American who deserves our gratitude for his service."
“American Spy is a rollicking spy’s eye view of the conflicts that shaped the modern world, from Bosnia to Basra. H. K. Roy shows readers what it is like to be trained as a CIA officer and to be deployed the front lines.”
