The Secrets of the FBI by New York Times bestselling author Ronald Kessler reveals the FBI's most closely guarded secrets and the secrets of celebrities, politicians, and movie stars uncovered by agents during their investigations.

Based on inside access, the book presents revelations about the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound, the recent Russian spy swap, Marilyn Monroe's death, Vince Foster's suicide, and J. Edgar Hoover's sexual orientation. For the first time, it tells how the FBI caught spy Robert Hanssen in its midst and how the FBI breaks into homes, offices, and embassies to plant bugging devices without getting caught.

From Watergate to Waco, from congressional scandals to the killing of bin Laden, The Secrets of the FBI presents headline-making disclosures about the most important figures and events of our time.

    Nothing new or interesting

    This book was nothing short of a let down. As someone who is quite curious about the inter-workings of law enforcement and intelligence agencies , this book was a disappointment. The simplistic content makes the narrator's delivery seem melodramatic. The book seemed more like a cheesy script to a poor Police TV show than an actual uncovering of the FBI.

    Some interesting material, but overall pretty slow. About 2/3's through I called it quits.
