"the Cold War from a fresh perspective"

After the hype of Deutschland 86 and that incredible female espionage wardrobe, I am excited to be reading American Spy, with its view of the fray of the Cold War from a fresh perspective. Marie Mitchell, a black female spy, goes on a mission to track down Thomas Sankara, the African Che Guevara, and has to choose between love, her family and her country.
