The Wolf and the Watchman: A Father, a Son, and the CIA

The Wolf and the Watchman: A Father, a Son, and the CIA - Scott C. Johnson This was a really interesting look into the life of a man who is the son of a CIA agent. Johnson takes you through his childhood constantly moving around the world all the way to his time as a war correspondent in Iraq, and shows readers how his father's career affected his life. I loved reading about Johnson's childhood and also reading about his father's childhood and seeing how they were actually quite similar. For the first 3/4 of this book I was completely sucked into this book and had to keep reminding myself that these events really happened (it read like fiction). The last 1/4 of the book did seem to drag on a bit. At times I became annoyed with Johnson's constant complaining about how he doesn't believe his father and his constant search for the "truth" about his father. Other than that my only other complaint about the book would be about the epilogue. What was that epilogue? I was so confused.Overall I enjoyed this book and found it to be compelling and insightful. I would recommend this book to someone interested in reading about the effects of being related to a CIA agent.[I received this book from a Goodreads First Reads Giveaway. That does not affect the content of my review in any way.]
