Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Truman's seventh thriller shows a deepening knowledge of her craft, topping her previous bestsellers, Murder in the White House, etc. CIA agent Colette Cahill heads a big cast of intriguers, American and foreign. Cahill's friend Barrie Nelson is a literary agent who dies suddenly on her way to meet a Hungarian author. The official verdict is heart failure, but Cahill suspects murder and investigates. The self-assignment takes her to the Virgin Islands, where Nelson's lover, a fellow agent, spies on Soviet visitors; to a psychiatrist in New York whom the dead woman had consulted; to Budapest and back to Washington. Everywhere Cahill is in imminent danger and embittered by evidence that neither the CIA nor rival intelligence agencies respect law, only one-upmanship. This is a colorful, seething story of cruelty and corruption that discloses how far the U.S. organization has deviated from its purpose since it was set up by President Truman in 1947written by one who knows. (November 30)
Library Journal
A literary agent who happens to be a CIA courier is murdered in London's Heathrow airport. Collette Cahill, member of the CIA unit in Budapest, wants to know why her friend died. As she travels from Europe to Washington, D.C. and the British Virgin Islands she makes a few startling discoveries about herself and the organization for which she works. In each of her mysteries Truman has been concerned with morality in government and this is her strongest statement to date. Along the way she has created a knowledgeable, very capable female operative who knows the ropes and can fend for herself. JV

As a light channeler working with Sananda, Buddha, the four main archangels, Michael, Gabriel Uriel and Raphael, I like a pleasant diversion from my busy metaphysical daytime activities. So Irma r, my Huna friend recommended that I read Murder in the CIA, and I highly recommend this outstanding book. You'll not want to put it down, it keeps your attention riveted for hours! Enjoy!
