520    "A highly entertaining account of a young woman who went 
       straight from her college sorority to the CIA, where she 
       hunted terrorists and WMDs. When Tracy Walder enrolled at 
       the University of Southern California, she never thought 
       that one day she would offer her pink beanbag chair in the
       Delta Gamma house to a CIA recruiter, or that she'd fly to
       the Middle East under an alias identity. The Unexpected 
       Spy is the riveting story of Walder's tenure in the CIA 
       and, later, the FBI. In high-security, steel-walled rooms 
       in Virginia, Walder watched al-Qaeda members with drones 
       as President Bush looked over her shoulder and CIA 
       Director George Tenet brought her donuts. She tracked 
       chemical terrorists and searched the world for Weapons of 
       Mass Destruction. She created a chemical terror chart that
       someone in the White House altered to convey information 
       she did not have or believe, leading to the Iraq invasion.
       Driven to stop terrorism, Walder debriefed terrorists-men 
       who swore they'd never speak to a woman-until they gave 
       her leads. She followed trails through North Africa, 
       Europe, and the Middle East, shutting down multiple 
       chemical attacks. Then Walder moved to the FBI, where she 
       worked in counterintelligence. In a single year, she 
       helped take down one of the most notorious foreign spies 
       ever caught on American soil. Catching the bad guys wasn't
       a problem in the FBI, but rampant sexism was. Walder left 
       the FBI to teach young women, encouraging them to find a 
       place in the FBI, CIA, State Department or the Senate-and 
       thus change the world"--|cProvided by publisher
