In 1974, Mark Felt was given the code name "Deep Throat" and shared intelligence on the Watergate break-in with a young reporter from the Washington Post named Bob Woodward. Thus began the greatest political scandal in the twentieth century, which would besmirch an entire administration and bring down a presidency.

A patriotic man, Felt only revealed his role in our national history as he neared the end of his
life. Based on his personal recollections, Mark Felt chronicles his FBI career, from the end of the
great American crime wave and World War II to the culture wars of the 1960s and his penetration
of the Weather Underground; provides rich historical and personal context for his role in the
Watergate scandal; and depicts how he came to feel that the FBI needed a "Lone Ranger" to
protect it from White House corruption.

About the Author:
Mark Felt (1913-2008) retired from his position as associate director of the FBI in 1973. He was the whistleblower who was referred to as "Deep Throat" during the investigation of the Watergate scandal in the early 1970s. In addition to A G-Man's Life, he is the author of The FBI Pyramid from the Inside.
From AudioFile:
Felt's role as "Deep Throat," the insider who led reporters to break the Watergate scandal, is the excuse for this book, but the longest and best part is his memoir of life as a straight-arrow FBI careerist who rose nearly to the top, a Hoover loyalist so devoted to the Bureau that he helped undo a president to preserve its independence and integrity. Michael Prichard's voice is not the prettiest, but he's skilled and experienced, and his no-nonsense but expressive reading serves this tough, principled, and conservative author well. Sections about the revelation of Felt's secret and his old age are tacked on but do add an interesting dimension. W.M. AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright AudioFile, Portland, Maine
