The Good Spy: The Life and Death of Robert Ames

Kai Bird

On April 18, 1983, a bomb exploded outside the American Embassy in Beirut, killing 63 people, including one of the CIA’s most important Middle East operatives, Robert Ames. Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer Kai Bird reaches back to his own childhood in Saudi Arabia to examine the life and death of his former neighbor, who served during the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre and as a White House liaison during the Iran hostage crisis in 1981. Kai’s real-life Robert Ames is “more exciting than le Carre’s George Smiley or Fleming’s James Bond." (Publishers Weekly)
