The Secrets of the FBI by New York Times bestselling author Ronald Kessler reveals the FBI's most closely guarded secrets and the secrets of celebrities, politicians, and movie stars uncovered by agents during their investigations.

Based on inside access, the book presents revelations about the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound, the recent Russian spy swap, Marilyn Monroe's death, Vince Foster's suicide, and J. Edgar Hoover's sexual orientation. For the first time, it tells how the FBI caught spy Robert Hanssen in its midst and how the FBI breaks into homes, offices, and embassies to plant bugging devices without getting caught.

From Watergate to Waco, from congressional scandals to the killing of bin Laden, The Secrets of the FBI presents headline-making disclosures about the most important figures and events of our time.

This has been a great read! It was nice to get the behind the scene look at our government leaders and wives(Hillary). Thank you Ronald Kessler!

This book goes through the beginings of the FBI and what their original purpose went from reacting to crime to prevention of terrorism and proactive methods. There has only been 5 directors since it's inception and to me it seems that only 2 of them were really good. I especially like the part of the book in which an actual "secret" about their tactical operations unit was revealed. For those interested in how law enforcement works on the national level, a truly informative read.
