Summary The United States Secret Service is tasked with one of the world's most important missions: protecting the President of the United States. World stability rests upon their shoulders. When they sign up to lay down their lives for the leader of the free world, they pledge to ensure America's continuity of government and continued leadership on the world stage. But unbeknownst to most Americans, that legacy faces a great risk today. The agency today is fraught with management problems thanks to years of increased politicization. The Secret Services' strategy and tactics have become increasingly reactive, placing presidential security at risk. New York Times bestselling author GARY BYRNE, a former Secret Service officer, reveals the agency's evolution, studying the major attacks it has thwarted and bringing to life the key players, forces and dramatic shifts that have made it what it is today - an elite but troubled protection force.
