Review quote

"A straight-on, behind-the-scenes look at one of the most effective federal agencies, told by a veteran ATF agent with 25 years' experience chasing mobsters, contract killers, hate groups, and gun-nuts. If it were a novel, it would be promoted as 'action-packed thriller,' but it's real life, folks... The ATF has given invaluable assistance in helping convict members of the Mafia, KKK, and Hell's Angels, and its crime labs have helped crack the Oklahoma City and World Trade Center bombings, but you'd never know it, and all most of us can remember about them is their part in the tragedy at Waco." -- Tom Elliott, The Mensa Bulletinshow more
