Tracy Walder was recruited to work for the CIA from the University of Southern California. On 9/11, she was tracking terrorists with President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and Secretary of State Colin Powell looking over her shoulder. Motivated to stop the new breed of terror that war created, Walder flew overseas under an alias identity, tasked with debriefing al-Qaeda’s top men who swore they’d never speak to a woman. Ultimately, she earned their trust and gained critical and life-saving information. The Unexpected Spy is a powerful memoir about a woman who established a career in a male-dominated field, and the enduring life lessons she learned from the experience.
In conversation with Shelley Sackett, attorney, freelance journalist, and former editor of the Jewish Journal.
