Inspired by true events, Intelligence is a fictionalized account of a covert operative who, tasked with protecting the national security of the United States post-9/11, is racing to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq when the unthinkable happens. With the country at war, her cover is blown and she must navigate a media frenzy, the CIA’s search for answers and her diplomat husband’s dogged pursuit of the truth. Intelligence is a political thriller that explores the cost of deception and the consequences of speaking truth to power.
