Jay Hawk: The Assassin's Lover
by Sean Eagan
If you liked ARGO, the Oscar-winning best picture of the year, you'll like this. The real life Tony Mendez, played by Ben Affleck, coached the author in trade-craft at CIA HQ in this extensively researched romantic espionage thriller. The lives of three women intersect in a cauldron of lies, violence, intrigue and sex, when one of them is targeted for kidnapping and torture by Iranian operatives.
