ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Jack Devine is one of the Legendary Spymasters of our time.  He was in Chile when Allende fell; he ran Charlie Wilson’s war in Afghanistan; he had too much to do with Iran-Contra for his own taste, though he tried to stop it; he pushed the CIA’s effort to run down Pablo Escobar in Colombia; he tried to warn George Tenet that there was a bullet coming from Iraq with his name on it.  He also writes about Aldrich Ames and Robert Hanssen.  Jack served America’s interests for more than thirty years in a wide range of covert operations, ultimately overseeing the Directorate of Operations, a CIA division that watches over thousands of American covert operatives worldwide.  Jack is a thirty-two-year veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).  Jack is also a Founding Partner and the President of The Arkin Group, an international risk consulting and intelligence firm.  Jack lives in New York City.

ABOUT GOOD HUNTING: AN AMERICAN SPYMASTER’S STORY:  A guide to the art of spycraft, told with great wit, candor, and commonsense wisdom.  Caricatured by Hollywood, lionized by the right, and pilloried by the left, the CIA remains one of the least understood instruments of the United States government.  Jack Devine knows more than almost anyone about the CIA’s vital importance as a tool of American statecraft.  Now, as he sees it, the agency is trapped within a larger bureaucracy, losing swaths of turf to the military and, most ominous of all, is becoming overly weighted toward paramilitary operations.  Its capacity to do what it does best has been seriously degraded.
