This has been a great read! It was nice to get the behind the scene look at our government leaders and wives(Hillary). Thank you Ronald Kessler!

This book goes through the beginings of the FBI and what their original purpose went from reacting to crime to prevention of terrorism and proactive methods. There has only been 5 directors since it's inception and to me it seems that only 2 of them were really good. I especially like the part of the book in which an actual "secret" about their tactical operations unit was revealed. For those interested in how law enforcement works on the national level, a truly informative read.
