Summary
"In 1999, 30-year-old Nada Bakos moved from her lifelong home in Montana to Washington, DC, to join the CIA. Quickly realizing her affinity for intelligence work, Nada was determined to rise through the ranks of the agency first as an analyst and then as a Targeting Officer, eventually finding herself on the frontline of America's War against Islamic extremists. Bakos reveals the inner workings of the Agency and the largely hidden world of intelligence gathering post 9/11. The Targeter shows us the great personal sacrifice that comes with intelligence work."--Dust jacket flap
