The Secrets of the FBI by Ronald Kessler Random House (audiobook) That members of the FBI (present and past) revealed secrets about the organisation's modus operandi probably means there is much more that remains confidential. As one of Ronald Kessler's confidantes tells him: 'The American public has a right to know what their government services are doing.' Cynics might even believe some of The Secrets of the FBI is disinformation. Still, the book offers interesting insights into, among other things, 'TacOps' (Tactical Operations), a 'supersecret unit of FBI break-in artists who conduct court-authorised burglaries'. Apart from the homes and offices of everyone from mafiosi to spies to corrupt politicians to terrorists and intelligence officers of Russia and China, members invade embassies to snoop or plant bugs. The lengths to which they will go can be comic: replacing old dust (on a table, say) with new dust; re-painting, if a hole has had to be drilled, or, as in one case, to make it look as though there has been a leak upstairs. A chapter on Vince Foster shows the nasty side of Hillary Clinton. Michael Bybee's no-nonsense narration is a plus.
