The memoir of the former director of the FBI covers not only the political scandals of the '90s, but also the Waco tragedy, the Oklahoma bombing, and efforts to eliminate the American Mafia. Adam Grupper narrates Freeh's take on crime-busting and political hanky-panky with crisp intelligence. Freeh's anecdotes, however, are strongly slanted against the decisions made by President Clinton, particularly regarding the bombing of the Khobar Towers in 1996. Freeh praises the actions of the first President Bush, who used his friendship with Saudi Prince Abdullah to gain Freeh access to bombing suspects, but paints Clinton as a savvy politician whose moral compass points only to expediency. Grupper reads even the most biased claims with appropriate journalistic objectivity. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
