When this book was published, it was partly responsible for the downfall of the FBI director. It discusses bureau operations, both legal and illegal; provides sketches of important personnel; and analyzes the myth of invincibility that permeates the organization. Jeff Riggenbach relates these in a clear, steady tone, allowing the listener to keep track of the sometimes serpentine subplots. Riggenbach reads the book with a straight, informative “just the facts, ma’am” voice. For the most part, it works. Such a long reading, however, needs some diversity. He’s not boring but becomes rather familiar, which invites tuning out. Take this book a little at a time. R.I.G. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 99]
