L'autore

Jan and Bob Ritter live on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay in Southern Maryland. Both are graduates of the University of Maryland and longtime residents of the Washington Metropolitan Area. Jan is retired from the teaching profession where she specialized in early childhood education and Reading Recovery. When not walking the boardwalk for exercise, she enjoys shopping, antiquing, reading, and working crossword puzzles. Bob is a retired federal criminal investigator (GS-1811) with a wealth of law enforcement and protective experience. A born collector, Bob loves history and the music of the 1940s-60s. He takes pleasure in watching the wildlife and ships that pass by the couple’s bay-front condominium. Bob is a member of the Association of Former Agents U.S. Secret Service (AFAUSSS), the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA), and the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP). Jan and Bob relish spending time with family and friends, especially the couple’s five granddaughters. With over 40 years of marriage, Jan and Bob deeply love one another and cherish each day together. Breaking Tecumseh’s Curse is the story of their early years together.

Compelling Secret Service History with Real Life Intertwined 7 maggio 2013
Di HighCholesterolGirl - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
As the daughter of a Secret Service agent, I remember the exact day that I realized what my Father's job really was - to die for someone else! I bought this book hoping to learn more about the Secret Service and specifically the history of Tecumseh's Curse. I was not disappointed. Exceptionally researched history was intertwined with the side of the story that many American citizens don't think about - the human side of these Secret Service Agents who pledge to protect the President at all costs. A great read, well written and easy to follow for a history afficionado as well as a lay person. I recommend this book for anyone interested in Secret Service History, the History of Tecumseh's Curse, as well as personal accounts of the times.

WELL DONE 29 aprile 2013
Di CAPT'N P - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I FOUND THIS TO BE EXTREMELY WELL WRITTEN AND VERY INFORMATIVE. I HAVE HAD MORE THAN ONE CONTACT WITH AGENTS, BOTH PROFESSIONALY AND PERSONALLY. I NEVER KNEW MUCH ABOUT THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES, OTHER THAN THE POTUS PROTECTION. I NOW KNOW THROUGH THIS BOOK THERE ARE SO MANY FACETS OF THE SECRET SERVICE THAT ARE VERY MUCH BEHIND WHAT THE PUBLIC SEE'S. THE INFORMATION WAS VERY WELL PRESENTED BY THE AUTHOR IN A MANNER THAT DISPLAYED HER EMOTIONS AND THE EFFECT THE POSITION HAD ON THE FAMILY'S QUALITY OF LIFE.IT ALSO SHOWED THE CHARACTER AND INTEGRITY OF THE SPECIAL AGENT'S.
I WAS IMPRESSED WITH THE BOOK TO THE POINT I FOUND IT DIFFICULT TO PUT DOWN. I ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW WHERE THE NEXT CHAPTER TOOK ME. IN CONCLUSION, EXCELLENT READING.
An interesting inside account of recent history 7 ottobre 2013
Di PhilipLR - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I usually read one fiction and one non-fiction book at the same time, and will grab the latter when I need help getting to sleep. That was a mistake with this book, as it was interesting and compelling enough to keep me up late for the two days it took to read--a page turner of the type I usually associate with fiction. The mixture of contemporary history from a unique insider view with the personal life of the author and her husband was well balanced and keeps the chapters moving. The account of a secret service agent as a real human being and family man contrasts with the common movie portrayals of stoic, even robotic supporting characters. This was an excellent, well-written book that I would strongly recommend. (non) Disclosure: my last name is the same as the authors, but I am not related and have never met them.
An excellent read! 13 settembre 2013
Di Frank - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
At first blush, I thought it was going to take me a while to get through the book. I soon found out that I couldn't put it down, it was a quick read. The history lesson that provided a backdrop to Ritter's days as a Park Police Officer & Special Agent of The USSS was very interesting. I found the details of Ritter's day-to-day duties to be very eye opening. The ongoing history lesson that gave context to Ritter's jobs were particularly educational. I found myself saying one of the following three things to myself: "I was aware of that", "I never knew that" & "I thought I knew that bit of history but I had wrong". I would recommend the book to anyone who is a student of history during that period of time or is interested in the machinations of both the US Park Police & USSS during some very stressful times.

You must read this very compelling story of two young people and their exciting journey together, Jan, an educator, and Bob, a Special Agent with the U. S. Secret Service. This wife's perspective of life married to a Secret Service Agent is written with humility, honesty, and with a sharp eye on events of the day and their impact on marriage and children. It is a fast and fascinating read, riddled with history lessons and informative background on various locations and historical figures, particularly our U. S. Presidents who Secret Service Agents are charged with protecting. Mr. and Mrs. Ritter deserve our thanks for sharing this personal, heartwarming, and truthful story. And, may I add, I shall be forever grateful to the men and women of the U. S. Secret Service.
