    This is a fun look at life in the Diplomatic Security Service. Starnes does a good job of illustrating the wide range of duties a typical DSS agent could expect to encounter. A history buff and proud Texan, Starnes gives brief overviews of the issues and countries he is stationed in, but this is not a great work for serious academics or historians. Enjoyable nonetheless!
