This book is a little dated at this point and Mr. Kessler's "The Bureau" is a more up to date account of the FBI's history. I also think the Bureau is a better written work. Like all of Mr. Kessler's books it is well researched, even handed, and bolstered by unprecedented access to secretive organizations. This book contibuted to the dismissal of one of the FBI's Directors for abusing his official position, so it is difficult to accuse Mr. Kessler of holding punches or propagandizing. All in all, it is sober account that lays bare the FBI's darker moments as well as the important work the Bureau does every day to keep Americans safe from mass murderers, organized crime syndicates, foreign intelligence agencies, and terrorist networks.
