Join us at the International Spy Museum Store and “Meet a Spy”, Sandra Grimes! Sandy is a longtime veteran of the CIA's clandestine service, and along with her partner Jeanne Vertefeuille was at the forefront of a small group assigned the mission of exposing Aldrich Ames. Sandy, who is a twenty-six- year veteran of the CIA’s clandestine service, spent the majority of her career working against the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.
Jeanne, who passed away in 2012, was a CIA officer from 1954 to 1992 specializing in counterintelligence in the Soviet Union. In 2003, nearly 10 years after the Ames case closed, Grimes and Vertefeuille agreed to co-author a memoir entitled Circle of Treason: A CIA account of Traitor Aldrich Ames and The Men He Betrayed.
