NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones® Award-winning narrator, Tom Weiner. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“In the first five minutes you'll be hooked….Tom Weiner's deep voice maximizes the impact of the author's machine-gun present-tense style to create an aura of tension and awareness.”—AudioFile

RATING: Suitable for adults who enjoy true thrillers and behind-the-scenes accounts.
For decades, Fred Burton was a key figure in international counterterrorism and domestic spycraft. As a member of the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service in the mid 1980s, he was on the front lines of America’s first campaign against terror. Now, in this hard-hitting memoir, Burton emerges from the shadows to reveal who he is, what he has accomplished, and the threats that lurk unseen except by an experienced, world-wise few. Told in a no-holds-barred, gripping, nuanced style, this behind-the-scenes account of one counterterrorism agent’s life and career is a riveting read.
