A true crime memoir taking the reader on a journey from his early years investigating some of Las Vegas, Nevada’s notorious counterfeiters and bank fraud masterminds to personal interactions with presidents and first ladies, and an US Supreme Court decision preserving the methods utilized by the Secret Service to protect the life of the president of the United States. The undercover investigation of a drug addicted forgery ring targeting Las Vegas casinos and the investigation of an escaped federal prisoner, scamming travel agents out of tens of thousands of dollars. A massive sting operation in a Las Vegas sports book, a Hell’s Angel counterfeiter, and the investigation of an alcoholic, schizophrenic cross-dresser who repeatedly threaten to kill President Reagan. The investigation and arrest of the Boston Patriot, one of New England’s most prolific credit card fraud masters and a dopey drug smuggler turned counterfeiter who smoked one too many joints. The investigation of an identify theft suspect with a lengthy criminal record, who convinced the FBI he was someone else, and an investigation of a pipe bomb targeting President Clinton in a small Oregon town. Riding horses and golfing with President Clinton and the day he made President Clinton scream out in pain. Conducting presidential security advances with a Hollywood movie producer turned Clinton advance man in Paris, France and St. Petersburg, Russia. The most unusual assignment to buy President Bush a pickup truck. Fishing in the remote Alaskan wilderness with former president George H.W. Bush, camping and hiking with First Lady Laura Bush. These are the unique stories only a Secret Service agent can tell.
