For Stafford, I&NS 3.1, "Bowen's book ... reads too much like an apologia to provide the definitive biography it seeks to be." Nonetheless, despite its faults, "not the least of which is a certain consistent naivety," the book "helps us understand the man and his times."

Bowen, Sally, and Jane Holligan. The Imperfect Spy: The Many Lives of Vladimiro Montesinos. Lima, Peru: Ediciones PEISA, 2003.

Wes, IJI&C 18.3 (Fall 2005), notes that Montesinos was "in charge of the efficient Servicio de Inteligencia Nacional (SIN), although never formally its director," during the presidency of Alberto Fujimora in Peru. This work is "a remarkable case study of what one can only hope was a very unique spy chief."

For Peake, Studies 49.3 (2005), the authors "have done a splendid job telling the often gruesome, but always interesting, story of Montesinos and the secret police he created.... The lack of source notes is largely compensated for by the chronology and references to known people, dates, and events. The authors have provided an important exemplar of how a corrupt security service can influence an entire country."

Bowen, Wyn. "Open-Source Intel: A Valuable National Security Resource." Jane's Intelligence Review, 1 Nov. 1999.

This article first offers "definitions of open-source information (OSINF) and open-source intelligence (OSINT). This is followed by a consideration of the utility of open sources in terms of complementing classified information. The article then proceeds with a brief conceptual consideration of the key steps in setting up and operating an open-source collection system. Key issues and problems associated with open source collection are subsequently highlighted. Finally, to provide an idea of the availability and scope of open sources with relevance to national security, some examples related to monitoring proliferation threats are provided."
