Journal Entry 1 by alaleon on Wednesday, August 20, 2008
A riveting account of the world's best sophisiticated law enforcement agency based on a major Channel 4 series. In a compelling mix of reportage, narrative and anlaysis, Jeffreys reveals the methods used by the FBI to carry out its difficult mission. We listen is as agents use sophisticated bugging devices to record, for the first time, the ceremony in which a Mafia wise guy becomes a made man. We ride with a Dallas SWAT team making a dawn raid on a drug dealer's hideout. We visit the training facility at Quantico, the bank robbery squad in Los Angeles, the counter-terrorism operation in New York and the FBI's byzantine Washington headquarters. Full of fascinating anecdotes and new information, this book is a dramatic - and long overdue - reappraisal of the modern FBI, which will have considerable impact on our perception of crime and justice in America.
