Publisher's Summary

A personal look at a crime of passion describes an FBI agent's successful career, family life, and extramarital affair that ended in murder, and the guilt that drove him to confess in spite of his impenetrable government shield.

In a true story of crime, guilt, and conscience, a model agent's illicit involvement with an informant leads him to commit a crime that reveals all the workings of the human heart - and the dark side of the FBI.

Excellent journalism

Any additional comments?

Incredibly tragic story very sensitively handled by a fine journalist. There were no winners in this tale, and no real villains as there often are in true crime stories, only a terrible collision of personalities that crushes the lives of all involved in a moment of lost control. The people who lived this tale and the world they inhabit are brilliantly, heartbreakingly described. I hope the film, starring the wonderful Emilia Clarke, serves them as well.

Intriguing and fast moving

Fact written with a personal touch of who the people really were. You can't help ending the story without having sympathy for everyone involved.

Fascinating, sad story

The author does a brilliant job revealing depth of all characters, even the "bad guy(s)." The entire story is almost always more nuanced than what we read in newspapers.

Quickly became one of my favorite Audio books

Great story, good author and great talent for the audio. Hard to stop listening and it really felt like I could see everything happening. It takes a lot for me to give anything 5 stars but I did.

Not A Bad Listen

As some true crime books go, they sometimes seem to get bogged down with almost too much back story. During my listen of this book, I thought the same thing. In fact, I quite listening to this book & started another because of that. However, during the last 2-3 chapters you become aware of why so much backstory is required. Everything gets tied in together & you end up quite liking the book! Stick with it, it's worth it.

Intriguing - fact based journalism

We know how difficult life can be, the deceptive forces that anyone can fall victim. This story can be seen as highlights the importance of keeping our limitations in check & cautiously press forward with the right support & many angles of accountability, if in fact the people around you are most important. So many things to distract us from what matters most (each other) in this world as we work at pursuing dreams. Many great principles to walk away with in this story.
