The Company We Keep: A Husband-and-Wife True-Life Spy Story
By Robert and Dayna Baer (Crown, $26)

Real-life CIA operatives Robert and Dayna Baer meticulously recount their assignments in the world’s most dangerous places and how their work unexpectedly led to a union. Robert concedes the discordance of their careers — “We lie all the time, live with false identities,” he writes — and the desire for loyalty and trust. Still, he asserts, “You have to tend to the human element.”
