Synopsis:

Many books, fiction and nonfiction alike, purport to probe the inner workings of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. Many attempt to create spine-tingling suspense or allege that America’s civilian spy operation has run amok and been infested with rogues and criminals. Not that The Craft We Chose lacks suspense, harrowing encounters, or its own share of villains, but this book is different; it is a straightforward, honest, surprisingly captivating memoir by one of the CIA’s most well-known and honored career officers. For more than three decades, Richard L. Holm worked in the agency’s Directorate of Operations now the National Clandestine Service the component directly responsible for collecting human intelligence. His assignments took him to seven countries on three continents, and his travels added many more destinations. At almost every turn Holm encountered his share of dangerous characters and situations, including one that nearly ended his life before he turned 30. The Craft We Chose is more than a chronicle of those episodes. It also reveals Holm’s private life, his roots and family, his courtship and marriage, and his four daughters, whom he affectionately calls his platoon.

About the Author: Richard L. Holm is a former paramilitary adviser, operations officer, senior manager, and station chief for the Central Intelligence Agency. He is the recipient of a special achievement award for his service in Southeast Asia, the Donovan Award for his work at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, and the Distinguished Intelligence Medal, the highest award the agency can bestow. He lives in Northern Virginia.
