Since the publication of his New York Times bestselling book In the President’s Secret Service, award-winning investigative reporter Ronald Kessler has continued to penetrate the wall of secrecy that surrounds the United States Secret Service, breaking the story that Secret Service agents who were to protect President Obama hired prostitutes in Cartagena, Colombia, and revealing that the Secret Service allowed a third uninvited guest to crash a White House state dinner.

Now in The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents, Kessler presents far bigger and more consequential stories that will make headlines about our nation’s leaders and the agency sworn to protect them. Kessler widens his scope to include presidential candidates and former presidents after they leave the White House. In particular, he focuses on first ladies and their children and their relationships with the presidents.

From seeing reckless behavior that threatens the country’s safety, to overhearing First Lady Michelle Obama’s admonitions to the president, to watching their own agency take risks that could result in an assassination, Secret Service agents know a hidden world that Ronald Kessler exposes in The First Family Detail.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator Michael Bybee’s deep and rich voice works well with this book, giving it some gravitas. We learn who is polite and who is nasty to the agents, the public, and other public servants, and we learn about our leaders’ habits and, yes, vices. Bybee paces himself well and varies his pitch and tone to keep the anecdotes moving.”
