內容簡介

CIA探員實戰全紀錄

 

2002年,擔任華爾街日報南亞分社主任的美國記者Daniel Pearl,不幸在巴基斯坦被恐怖份子綁架後斷頭,此事件引起國際熱議,也激發了一位年輕學子Amaryllis Fox研究恐怖份子的決心。 

Amaryllis Fox在學校的論文引起了CIA官員的注意,在她年僅22歲時即獲選進入CIA的團隊中,負責連結蓋達組織的官員之間的關係。CIA裡的世界和外界天差地別,這裡的同事都有雙重身份,結婚時她看著一排同事,心想「這些人我可能永遠都不會知道他們的真實身份!」

 

Fox的工作帶她去過許多政治不穩定的國家、地區,接觸了許多人一輩子都不可能接觸到的人,任務各式各樣,唯一的共通點就是危險性極高,其中還有許多任務還是她懷孕時完成的,在女兒出生後,Fox才決定卸下CIA的面具,走回平凡生活。 

10年的CIA經驗濃縮在這本回憶錄中,不僅記錄了CIA探員的真實生活,也記錄了Fox的熱忱和無所懼的勇氣,每一頁都精彩可期讓人捨不得放下!


Amaryllis Fox's riveting memoir tells the story of her ten years in the most elite clandestine ops unit of the CIA, hunting the world's most dangerous terrorists in sixteen countries while marrying and giving birth to a daughter

Amaryllis Fox was in her last year as an undergraduate at Oxford studying ancient languages and theoretical physics when her writing mentor Daniel Pearl was captured and beheaded. Galvanized by this brutality, she applied to a Master's program in conflict and terrorism at Georgetown's School of Foreign Service, where she created an algorithm that predicted, with uncanny certainty, the likelihood of a terrorist cell arising in any village around the world. At 21, she was recruited by the CIA. Her first assignment was reading and analyzing hundreds of classified cables a day from foreign governments and synthesizing them into daily briefs for the President. Her next assignment was at the Iraq desk in the Counterterrorism center. At 22, she was fast-tracked into advanced operations training, sent from Langley to "the Farm," where she lived for six months in a simulated world learning how to use a glock, how to get out of flexicuffs while locked in the trunk of a car, how to withstand torture, and the best ways to commit suicide in case of captivity. At the end of this training she was deployed as a spy under non-official cover--the most difficult and coveted job in the field--as an art dealer specializing in tribal and indigenous art--and sent to infiltrate terrorist networks in remote areas of the Middle East and Asia.

Life Undercover is exhilarating, intimate, fiercely intelligent--an impossible to put down record of an extraordinary life, and of Amaryllis Fox's astonishing courage and passion.
