Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Dan Emmett

Narrated By: Kevin Foley

Publisher: Tantor Media

Duration: 10 hours 5 minutes

Summary:

Dan Emmett was just eight years old when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. The events surrounding the president's death shaped the course of young Emmett's life as he set a goal of becoming a U.S. Secret Service agent-one of a special group of people willing to trade their lives for that of the president, if necessary.

Within Arm's Length is a revealing and compelling inside look at the Secret Service and the elite Presidential Protective Division (PPD). Using stories from some of the author's more high-profile assignments in his twenty-one years of service, Emmett describes the professional, physical, and emotional challenges faced by Secret Service agents. Included are never-before-discussed topics such as the complicated relationship between presidents, first ladies, and their agents; the inner workings of Secret Service protective operations; and the seldom-mentioned challenges of the complex Secret Service cultural issues faced by an agent's family.

Genres:

  • Timothy C.

    The writing was a little choppy for my taste and the story, while interesting, was a little too self-serving. Not a bad read by any means, but it was not entirely what I wanted or expected.

  • William C.

    Very interesting and has some strong historical elements.
