Superb listening, fascinating story. Narrated by Stewart Copeland, ex drummer of Police !
Easy to listen to, melodious voices. Fascinating, informative story of CIA history, interference, manipulation in the Middle East. And a fascinating, talented family reminiscing & chatting about their adventures & experiences growing up in the Middle East post Second World War. A must read if you enjoy world politics.
