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.
From Jan's unique perspective, her story relates the challenges of keeping her marriage and family life strong with the pressures of Bob's responsibilities as a Park Police officer, criminal investigator and Secret Service agent through the tumultuous period of 1972-1982.
As a meticulously researched historical account, the book provides interesting details and insights about the legend of Tecumseh's Curse. Bob's dedication to the Secret Service's mission of protective services and the anticipated continuation of the curse through Ronald Reagan's presidency add another layer to the story. As a cautionary tale, Bob's innovative proposals for protecting the president are not implemented and we are left with unanswered questions of what precautions might have prevented the attempt on President Reagan's life.
In contrast to recent disturbing events involving the Secret Service, this book stands as a tribute to the many dedicated agents and their families.
