"Fair Game: How a Top Spy Was Betrayed by Her Own Government"
by Valerie Plame Wilson
Simon & Schuster / 413 pages / $15
Columnist Robert Novak destroyed Valerie Plame Wilson's career when he identified her as a CIA officer in 2003, and she wrote this book both to settle scores and to support her family. After reviewing the manuscript, the CIA demanded many deletions; the book includes the censor's marks as well as an afterword by reporter Laura Rozen, who uses the public record to fill in the gaps.
