From the Publisher"Colorful and fascinating . . . Kessler's sobering report . . . will come as a surprise to most readers—and possibly even Washington insiders . . . Chilling."
— The Washington Post Book World
"A compelling and timely exposition of the real FBI. Kessler's fresh information and command of the facts . . . rings with authority."
— The Los Angeles Times Book Review
"An assiduous journalist, Kessler has written numerous books about behind-the-scenes stories at the national security agencies. His reportage on the abuse of office perks by ex-FBI director William Sessions, for example, precipitated Sessions' exit in 1993. His latest book is a history of the FBI since its origin in 1908 and is structured around directors' tenures . . . Kessler's access to reliable sources results in a richly detailed overview."
