The opening sentence in the publisher's note about Jack Devine's book Good Hunting: An American Spymaster Story evokes enough excitement for a Hollywood movie. It reads: "Jack Devine ran Charlie Wilson's War in Afghanistan."

Devine's decades-long career as a CIA covert operative took him not only to Afghanistan, but to missions involving Columbia, Iraq and Chile, among other headline-making places. The book touches on it all and illuminates "some of the CIA's deepest secrets and spans an illustrious tenure-and never before has an acting deputy director of operations come forth with such an account."

Devine also takes the opportunity to discuss shortcomings and challenges of the current CIA, i.e., "trapped in a larger bureaucracy," he writes.

After leaving the CIA, Devine became a founding partner of The Arkin Group, an international risk consulting and intelligence firm.

In addition to the Texas connection between Devine and Lufkin Democratic Congressman Charlie Wilson (played by Tom Hanks in the movie Charlie Wilson's War), there is one more Texas link: Devine's co-author is Houston Chronicle managing editor Victor Loeb.
