9780914090700: Special Agent Man: My Life in the FBI as a Terrorist Hunter, Helicopter Pilot, and Certified Sniper

For decades, movies and television shows have portrayed FBI agents as fearless heroes leading glamorous lives, but this refreshingly original memoir strips away the fantasy and glamour and describes the day-to-day job of an FBI special agent. The book gives a firsthand account of a career in the Federal Bureau of Investigation from the academy to retirement, with exciting and engaging anecdotes about SWAT teams, counterterrorism activities, and undercover assignments. At the same time, it challenges the stereotype of FBI agents as arrogant, case-stealing, suit-wearing stiffs by portraying the real people who carry badges and guns. With honest, self-deprecating humor, Steve Moore’s narrative details his successes and his mistakes, the trauma the job inflicted on his marriage, his triumph over the aggressive cancer that took him out of the field for a year, and his return to the Bureau with renewed vigor and dedication to take on some of the most thrilling assignments of his career.

About the Author:

After joining the FBI in 1983, Steve Moore worked as a SWAT team operator, sniper, pilot, counterterrorist agent, and undercover agent, receiving multiple awards from the Department of Justice and the FBI for his investigations. He retired from the FBI in 2008.

Review:

“If you've ever wished you had a best friend who spent a lifetime in the FBI and could regale with stories...now you do. Steve Moore is one of the good guys. He's been there and you'll believe you were right there with him during every adventure.” —Bob Hamer, veteran undercover FBI agent and the author of Targets Down

Special Agent Man by Steve Moore is an utterly fascinating, thrilling, and at times humorous memoir of the life and adventures of a top FBI agent. This book is the real deal and I highly recommend it.” —Douglas Preston, New York Times best-selling author, and co-author of The Monster of Florence

"If you ever wondered ‘what it would be like to be FBI,’ this is your book."—Library Journal

"A love letter to a dangerous career"  —Kirkus Reviews 

"Fascinating insights...an unpretentious account of a proud career in service to public safety."  —Kirkus Reviews 

 "Bolstered by its striking true-life storyline, his memoir is a gripping read."  —South China Morning Post
