Sharp shooters from the FBI - the training and what goes into deciding whether and/or when to pull the trigger. The hardship they endure on a stakeout. The hair on the back of my neck was standing up. Tense and riveting. A great read!
An excellent book that not only gives you a glimpse into the FBI but shows you how they have changed over the years. It also gives an inside view of some of the events that merited world wide coverage and also little known events that could have changed our world if they had turned out different. This is an inside view of the FBI that could only be told by someone who actually lived it.
