Spy vs. Spy
Former — and infamously outed — CIA agent Valerie Plame is through looking back. With past events and her memoir about them (How a Top CIA Agent Was Betrayed by Her Own Government) behind her, she’s now forging into fiction with help from best-selling thriller author Sarah Lovett, who helped Plame shape her firsthand knowledge of the world of international intrigue into a globe-trotting page-turner. Considering Plame’s inside expertise, where does the fiction end and the fact begin? You’ll just have to read Blowback, the first in a series of spy novels featuring CIA covert-ops officer Vanessa Pierson, whose initials look darned familiar.
Valerie Plame will sign copies of Blowback ($26.95, Blue Rider Press) and appear in conversation with former senator Gary Hart tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Tattered Cover LoDo, 1628 16th Street; for more information, visit tatteredcover.com or call 303-436-1070.
