My life as a mid-level CIA desk jockey
Valerie Plame Agrees to Book Deal

NEW YORK (AP) -- Valerie Plame, the former CIA operative whose unmasking led to a federal investigation and the indictment of a top vice presidential aide, has agreed to a book deal with the Crown Publishing Group.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but two sources close to the negotiations said the deal was in the low seven figures…
Faux muckraking by outed ideologues and frustrated fifth columnists doesn’t usually do well.

Me thinks Crown Publishing’s prospects for the Plame book will be similar to that of Mary Mapes’ (the infamous CBS producer of ‘Memogate’) Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power published by St. Martin's Press.

Truth’s’ present Amazon.com sales rank is 217,779. Also found in the same sales ranking cluster are:
  • North American Indian Jewelry and Adornment
  • Making Peace With Your Thighs: Get Off the Scales And Get on With Your Life
