Quotes & Highlights

On The Company We Keep: “Funny, frightening, ironic, and deeply moving, this is an utterly engrossing thrill ride,” —Richard North Patterson, author of Degree of Guilt  

Description

Moderated by Barry Eisler, Former CIA Directorate of Operations, Creator, John Rain series; Author, _Inside Out _

Married couple and former CIA agents Dayna & Robert Baer discuss their lives as spies and as a married couple.

Robert Baer is the author of three New York Times best-sellers: See No Evil, Sleeping With the Devil, and The Devil We Know. He has become one of the most authoritative voices on American intelligence.

Robert’s book See No Evil inspired the hit film Syriana starring George Clooney.

Robert and Dayna’s new book, The Company We Keep, is unlike any previous account of life in the CIA.
