Valerie Plame's "Blowback"
Valerie Plame, whose cover as a CIA agent was famously blown during the Bush Administration, joins us to talk about the new thriller she has written, Blowback .
In the book, Covert CIA ops officer Vanessa Pierson is finally close to capturing the world’s most dangerous international nuclear arms dealer: Bhoot, alias the ghost. One of her assets has information about Bhoot’s upcoming visit to a secret underground nuclear weapons facility in Iran—in only a few days. But just as Pierson’s informant is about to give her the location, they’re ambushed by an expert sniper. Pierson narrowly escapes. Her asset: dead.
