About the Author

James Ring is a retired FBI Supervisory Special Agent who investigated the American La Cosa Nostra and the Sicilian Mafia in New England. Ring received the Department of Justice's highest award as the architect of the first and only electronic interception of the La Cosa Nostra/Mafia induction ceremony of new members, including the Omerta oath.

Ring has testified in federal court as an expert witness on La Cosa Nostra and has served as a media commentator on organized crime. He participated in a series by National Public Radio analyzing the current Department of Justice Informant Guidelines. Ring served on the Department of Defense advisory board mandated by Congress to review their civilian and military investigative capabilities. This review included the growing military preference of favoring electronic intelligence over human intelligence.

After retiring from the FBI, Ring founded a business information and investigative service within a prestigious Boston law firm where he remains today. Ring resides in Boston and South Dartmouth, Massachusetts, with his wife Merita A. Hopkins.

Five stars for James Ring. This isn't only a good read, it should be a required read for everyone hoping to sleep well in America tonight. Ring's "necessary assets" are the essential ingredients of personal security in America today. The rough and tumble of inter-agency competition for advancement in the shadow of imminent catastrophe is explained by no less than a retired FBI guy . No sugar coating here. Integrity and life long friendships...necessary assets for success in the world of espionage. The common urban directive " If you see something, say something!" became my mantra as I came to grips with this page turner. Got it? Get it. I couldn't put it down and can't let it go.

Great Book. I am surprised no one has written about the potential danger coming from those LNG Tankers coming into Boston harbor. The story is believable. That is what makes it such a good read.
