Louis Freeh led the Federal Bureau of Investigation from 1993 to 2001, through some of the most tumultuous times in its long history. This is the story of a life in law enforcement and of one man's determined struggle to strengthen and reform the FBI while ensuring its freedom from political interference.

Bill Clinton called Freeh a law enforcement legend when he nominated him as FBI Director. The good feelings would not last. Going toe-to-toe with his boss during the scandal-plagued '90s, Freeh fought hard to defend his agency from political interference and to protect America from the growing threat of international terrorism. When Clinton later called that appointment the worst one he had made as president, Freeh considered it a badge of honor.

This is Freeh's entire story, from his Catholic upbringing in New Jersey to law school, the FBI training academy, his career as a U.S. District attorney and as a federal judge, and finally his eight years as the nation's top cop. This is the definitive account of American law enforcement in the run-up to September 11. Freeh is clear-eyed, frank, the ultimate realist, and he offers resolute vision for the struggles ahead.

    " The choice of books I read is mostly limited to the resale section of the library. This is another fine selection from the resale section. The book is an easy to read and interesting recap of the recent times, especially hearing about President Clinton's legal issues from the POV of "The Man". : ) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe Wisniewski | 1/2/2014

    " A very personable read. While the title implies political considerations, those accusations of a Clinton WH simply not interested in intelligence matters has been borne out in other biographies. "

    " This could have been a great book, the stories are there. I think Freeh wrote it himself, or I hope that he did since the author has almost zero ability to write a good story. Freeh could maybe write memoes and this been is one. "
