For decades, movies and television shows have portrayed FBI agents as fearless heroes leading glamorous lives, but this refreshingly original memoir strips away the fantasy and glamour and describes the day-to-day job of an FBI special agent. The book gives a firsthand account of a career in the Federal Bureau of Investigation from the academy to retirement, with exciting ...more

Mr. Moore wrote with honesty, integrity, hilarity, and reverence for God, respect for life, family and friends. I've read dozens of books written by ex members of the FBI, CIA, DIA, NSA and a whole lot of other agencies, because, I admire greatly what you and your comrades do. Truth be told, I would have been thrilled to do what you do, rather than to have become a lawyer, but I admit I didn't have the guts. I guess that's why I like to read about what I never could do.

Now I've read a book that

This book is about even more than it appears, meaning this book isn't just about the FBI, it's about a life dedicated to law enforcement - including the costs. It's an exciting read and very informative.

An operator who's been there and done that, according to this autobiography. Moore is atypical, as he seems to be a (retired) Fed with a sense of humor. The final chapter is surprisingly poignant.

Moore puts a human face on the special agent. The book reads fast with the kind of stories you might hear at Thanksgiving dinner--if your relative was a terrorist hunter and certified sniper.

Not everybody’s life can be transcribed into a book successfully; consider the postman, the lunch lady, the chicken farmer. Moore, an ex-FBI dude, has a conversational tone and a sense of humor that adds warmth to his stories which read like talking over a beer, or a long bike ride. Once readers get past his Wonder Boy early life, the book becomes a manly read that chronicles his training. “From day one the FBI was magic for me,” he writes, even at his first post in Salt Lake City in 1984, when ...more

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this. It's very "American", if I can put it that way. Boy's-Own type adventures of a guy who admits he never really grew up, or wanted to. But he was raised as a God-fearing boy and that comes up in his stories now and then. Not enough to affect the stories, but enough to know he comes from the good ol' U S of A, where football teams pray for divine assistance - to both sides.

This isn't a diary, but rather a series of vignettes in more-or-less chronological or
