Quotes & Awards

  • “Unusually thoughtful and even handed…studded with anecdotes that are always instructive and often funny.”

    Washington Post Book World

  • “The tour is never dull, especially since it features so much 007 gadgetry, from water-spraying silent drills to eavesdropping devices that work by zapping laser beams through windows.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “Kessler…reveals more about the agency’s structure, policies and key personnel than any previous writer has…A largely objective, evenhanded, highly informative survey.”

    Publishers Weekly
