Product Details


Loose Lips told me everything I ever wanted to know about the CIA but couldn’t think [of] who to ask. Claire Berlinski’s Selena Keller is one part Inspector Clouseau and one part Nancy Drew, with a touch of Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw thrown in. Berlinski makes central intelligence funny and endearing and (go figure) intelligent.”
—MEGHAN DAUM, author of My Misspent Youth and The Quality of Life Report

“Funny and smart . . . [It] will hold your attention till the end and make you wish for a sequel.”

“This looks like an insider’s account. Claire Berlinski does a marvelous job of portraying a young woman being plunged into a culture most Americans find difficult to understand. It’s an honest book. It should be read by anyone intending to work for the CIA.”
—ROBERT BAER, author of See No Evil

“Wickedly funny . . . What first looks like a light summer read turns out to be a chilling, absorbing story.”
The Washington Post Book World

Cosmopolitan, “Hot Summer Reads”

There’s . . . a lot to cheer about thanks to the narrative voice of an extremely engaging and likable main character. Breezy, accomplished and bracing, this is superior entertainment.”
Publishers Weekly

“Sharp wit that would make the Sex and the City girls proud; a heroine who refreshingly does not fall for Joe Stud. Grade: A.”
The Washington Post

“Berlinski writes about the CIA with wit and authority. . . . Combing through the various knots of betrayal will hold your attention till the end and make you wish for a sequel.”

“Claire Berlinski has written a book with an authentic feel about a love affair between officers in the Central Intelligence Agency. . . . The main character is attractive, and the writing is tight and witty.”
Deseret News (Utah)

“With Alias and The Recruit stirring up interest, Berlinski’s insightful, clever debut will have wide appeal.”
