Only 200 people have ever been in Christopher Whitcomb's elite branch of the F.B.I. The Hostage Rescue Team is its most highly trained and specialized squadron-equivalent to the Navy's Seals and the Army's Delta Force-charged with terrorist capture, hostage situations, and other large-scale emergencies in the U.S. and around the world. Whitcomb is the first HRT member ever to write about his experience.
With breathtaking immediacy, Whitcomb describes the brutal training, the weapons and tactics, and the unbreakable camaraderie of the HRT. In short order, after joining HRT in 1991, Whitcomb was sent on missions to Ruby Ridge and Waco, and his frank assessment of those missions is must reading for anyone interested in modern law enforcement.

Christopher Whitcomb is an active, 15-year veteran of the F.B.I., and Director of Intelligence for the Critical Incident Response Group. He is a recipient of the FBI's Medal of Bravery for exceptional courage in the line of duty, and he has participated in virtually every high-profile federal investigation in recent years.From AudioFile:
This insider's view of federal law enforcement sounds a bit much like the party line. While providing us with a fascinating view of the FBI and the author's role in the events at Ruby Ridge and Waco, it is very much a look at how the government views itself. Whitcomb writes well, and his reading is fine. He employs the same clear and disciplined voice throughout the production, his inflection keeping the listener's interest.
