UnderCover with Spymasters Author Chris Whipple

Author Interview

[Editors Note: Cipher Brief Senior Book Editor Bill Harlow recently had a conversation with author Chris Whipple about his new book: The Spymasters. A review of the book can be found here. In the book’s acknowledgments section, Whipple thanks Harlow for his assistance.  Harlow tell us that was mostly for convincing a few folks who might be otherwise inclined to sit down for interviews with the author.]
