Biography & Autobiography. Politics. Nonfiction. HTML:

For decades, Fred Burton, a key figure in international counterterrorism and domestic spycraft, has secretly been on the front lines in the fight to keep Americans safe around the world. Now, in this hard-hitting memoir, Burton emerges from the shadows to reveal who he is, what he has accomplished, and the threats that lurk unseen except by an experienced, world-wise few.

In this globe-trotting account of one counterterrorism agents life and career, Burton takes us behind the scenes to reveal how the United States tracked Libya-linked master terrorist Abu Nidal; captured Ramzi Yusef, architect of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing; and pursued the assassins of major figures including Yitzhak Rabin, Meir Kahane, and General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq, the president of Pakistanclassic cases that have sobering new meaning in the treacherous years since 9/11. Here, too, is Burtons advice on personal safety for todays most powerful CEOs, gleaned from his experience at Stratfor, the private firm Barrons calls the shadow CIA.

If there's a good book in here, it's past the first chapter or so.

I put this down in disbelief at how silly the writing was, as if it were a pulp detective novel. ( )

Snippets of activities covering Fred Burtons career as a counter terrorism agent. Many of the stories are familiar, some are not. None are covered extensively, so to me it was more of an overview of the areas his agency dealt with. ( )

Chronicles the growth and activity of Department of State's counter terrorism capability. It's well written and the reader feels like it's right there. If the author wrote another book, I'd read it. ( )

A very well written book taking you into the world of counterterrorism. The author does an amazing job of describing how the world is a constantly changing and dangerous place. ( )
