Publisher's Summary

The CIA is looking for walking contradictions. Recruiters seek people who can keep a secret, yet pull classified information out of others; who love their country, but are willing to leave it behind to head into dangerous places; who live double lives, but can be trusted with some of the nation's most highly sensitive tasks.
Michele Rigby Assad was one of those people.
As a CIA agent, Michele soon found that working undercover was an all-encompassing job. The threats were real. The mission was a perilous one. Trained as a counterterrorism expert, Michele spent over a decade in the agency - a woman leading some of the most highly skilled operatives on the planet, secretly serving in some the most treacherous areas of the Middle East. But deep inside, Michele wondered: Could she really do this job? Was she in the right place at the right time, or had she misunderstood what she thought was God's calling on her life? Did she have what it would take to survive?
The answer came when Michele faced a life-or-death choice - one that had secretly been the plan for her all along. In Breaking Cover, Michele has at last been cleared to drop cover and tell her story: one of incredible struggle; of thwarted plans and expectations; and most of all, of discovering a faith greater than all her fears.

Not quite the book it's title suggests

At the simplest level, this is the story of one person's personal journey from entering the CIA to what they did next.

"Secret life" is a little dramatic and even what is presented doesn't go into great depth. There isn't a lot to learn about "what's worth fighting for" apart from what was important to this person, and a fair bit of that appeared to be a 'God will show you the way' type message.

I really like Michelle's narration. Having heard her on various podcasts, this was a little slower but 1.25x sorted that out neatly. I would be keen to hear her read other books. A real highlight for me.

2/3 of the book is about the CIA journey, and the final third is about a particular project to find somewhere for persecuted middle Eastern Christians. Although I wasn't expecting that, I mostly enjoyed it. However the praying and faith in God stuff here was laid on a bit too thickly for me - I am not against it's inclusion but it was definitely too much for me.

Not a lot to learn here - but you may find the personal story interesting. I was hoping for more insightful stuff to take away for my own life. If my expectation was different, I think I would have rated it a bit higher. The narration is excellent.
