Loose Lips by Claire Berlinski

Read the first chapter of Loose Lips for free. Here's an excerpt:
On the morning of my first day at the CIA, I dressed in a fresh cream winter suit with gold buttons and brocade trim. I wore silk panties, sheer nylons, pearls that looked real and earrings to match. My Ferragamo pumps came from a thrift store, but they didn't look it. I put expensive serum in my hair to make it straight and shiny, and I wore three very thin gold bracelets with my watch. I checked myself in the mirror one last time before I left: I decided I would have looked right at home in the photograph on the CIA Website.
