    1. The premise of this espionage-romance is solid. Dara, expert CIA field agent, has been sidelined to a desk job for an illicit romance. The murder of a hero finds her in a position to solve the crime, fix endemic rot within the agency and redeem her own career to boot, if only she can figure out what is going on in time. Dara is apparently at odds with everyone, including the Agency and her Jordanian secret agent lover. So far, so good.Unfortunately, the author does several things to undercut her [...]


    2. Within the pages of a work of fiction it may always be necessary to suspend disbelief. Fair enough - it is an unwritten contract between writer and reader. Meanwhile, somewhere fore or aft there is usually some factual information about the author. In Cloaks and Veils we are told that the author is a former undercover CIA officer with a near-decade of covert service around the globe; it must be true but, after reading her book, it almost beggars belief.Ms Carleson chooses a female undercover CIA [...]


    3. J. C. Carleson achieves something difficult in "Cloaks and Veils": she delivers a tense, engaging espionage page-turner that eschews Bond-like superhero antics and isn’t shy about the drabber mundanities of the intelligence world. There's plenty of derring-do and spy know-how in her first novel since leaving the CIA’s clandestine service, where according to Carleson’s website she served for nearly a decade. There are deft twists and turns, some modest steaminess and an enjoyable gallery of [...]


    4. Dara McIntyre is a successful CIA Agent, and although the author seems to understand CIA culture very well and she is a more than capable writer, I just could not get into the story. Most novels in the genre do have specific structure within them that keep the story moving along. There was really not a lot within it that could hold my interest, the plot seemed to be well developed, but the author needs to consider how she shows us what Dara is thinking and doing. Much of it became rather redunda [...]


    5. It had been awhile since I rad a spy novel and I wasn't disappointed with this one. I immediately loved Dara's attitude and aplomb. The plot was sufficiently twisted to keep me interested.This book contained many scenarios that are probably really happening. Even the base murders and sex scenes were handled with finesse. One point of view that could have been omitted was Travis Park. It allowed the reader to glimpse the "dark side" but it wasn't integral to the overall story.


    6. I got this one as a free e-book from .It seemed interesting and at the time I needed a book to read. It took me over a month to finish it. Not that I didn't enjoy it but just after I bought this book I had a plethora of books show up in my mailbox.Which meant this one got pushed to the side.There was a whole lot of stuff going on in this book.But through it all I really liked Dara. She was a take charge kind of woman.She was a straight shooter & no BS kind of person.I did find it sort of sad [...]


    7. I really enjoy reading a good suspenseful novel. In this case, the book is written by a former CIA spook which sounded intriguing. Although I put the pieces together pretty early on, the story still kept me engaged to see if my hunches were correct. In addition, I stayed because I wanted to see how the story played out. I was satisfied with the ending and I enjoyed the characters enough to hope that Carleson uses them again sometime. This is certainly a fun read and I hope to see more books from [...]


    8. Interesting take on the CIA, I want to believe is quite accurate considering the writer's credentials. It is also a story of romance in the center, hidden by the intrigue and bureaucracy.Still there are a few things that don't clic correctly, mostly in the time frame, between the time of Dara's punishment and the events that force the hands of the powers that be to pursue that choice. Either they planned the situation long before hand they really need it, or the times are wrong.


    9. It started off as a really interesting read but in the middle, I sadly lost interest. I dont know if it was because I was in the middle of a move and had a lot going on but it was becoming a dry read.


    10. A great read though I hope that the CIA doesn’t really work like this (but it likely does since Carleson used to work there). I appreciated both how Dara had faults and how the plot twisted and turned unexpectedly.


    11. Mesmerizing!!!The book definitely kept me interested. The plot had enough twists and turns to wonder what was happening next and was also believable.



    12. A very cynical tale about the CIA. I liked the first half of the book, buthad trouble buying into some of the later situations.



    13. We!l written. It keeps your interestWell written It keeps your attention to the point you don't want to put it down until you finish it.



    14. The plot of this book took a really long time to gain momentum. Once it really picked up, I found the layers of manipulation and lies intriguing.Overall a good, but not great, book.


    15. A cool espionage thriller, with an interesting premise - American spies doing bad things to take down the terrorists. I hope there is a sequel!
