Hear from Peter Lapp, author of Queen of Cuba in a moderated discussion with Suzanne Kelly, CEO & Publisher of  The Cipher Brief, followed by a book signing.


 U.S. government officials knew they had a spy, but it never occurred to them it was a superstar Defense Intelligence Agency employee. Ana Montes impressed her bosses, but she also spent seventeen years spying for the Cubans. After the 9/11 attacks, Cuba wanted Montes to continue her work. They couldn’t know the FBI was already on to her. Retired FBI agent Peter J. Lapp explains the clues—including never-released information—that led their team to catch one of the United States’ most dangerous spies.
