Normally, I am not a fan of the spy genre, but I found many of these stories to be highly entertaining; probably the "worst" one, and it wasn't really a bad short story, was the one by Lee Child. Recommended.

Just one word, I hate spies. Nothing more to say about these lower than low life monsters.

Charles McCarrys short story is by far the best in this book. The rest are between average and terrible.
