Review

“If you've ever wished you had a best friend who spent a lifetime in the FBI and could regale with stories...now you do. Steve Moore is one of the good guys. He's been there and you'll believe you were right there with him during every adventure.” —Bob Hamer, veteran undercover FBI agent and the author of Targets Down

Special Agent Man by Steve Moore is an utterly fascinating, thrilling, and at times humorous memoir of the life and adventures of a top FBI agent. This book is the real deal and I highly recommend it.” —Douglas Preston, New York Times best-selling author, and co-author of The Monster of Florence

"If you ever wondered ‘what it would be like to be FBI,’ this is your book."—Library Journal


"A love letter to a dangerous career"  —Kirkus Reviews 


"Fascinating insights...an unpretentious account of a proud career in service to public safety."  —Kirkus Reviews 


 "Bolstered by its striking true-life storyline, his memoir is a gripping read."  —South China Morning Post

Steve has such an interesting background and is a wonderful storyteller. Hearing the behind the scenes perspective of his life in the FBI is truly enjoyable. His humility and humor coupled with his fascinating adventures catching "bad guys" makes this book worth your time.

I purchased this primarily because it was written by a friend, and found it to be a surprisingly good read! Who would have known that Steve Moore, besides being former FBI, can write and is entertaining. Good job Steve

I think the world of Steve and his family. Steve devoted much of his personal time helping Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito who are falsely accused of the murder of Meredith Kercher in Perugia Italy on Nov 1, 2007. Steve lived a very interesting life and his book is worthy of your attention.

From supporting ground chases in the air, to fire in the cockpit, to swat team raids, to investigation of violent crimes and terrorism, to an honest assessment of the strain on family and self. This book has it all. I'm hoping for a sequel.

I read this book from the perspective of a guy who knew the 19-year-old Steve Moore as a fraternity brother at University of the Pacific. Steve even writes about his time there in the late '70's and those chapters capture the essence of the guy I knew then. He was the Social Chairman. What else do you need to know?

But it turns out there is much more to know. The man revealed in Special Agent Man has a depth of faith, courage, loyalty and intelligence that I don't think many of us suspected back in the day. I loved reading how he came to be in the FBI. His feelings of "everyone is competent but me" seem awfully familiar to me and resonate with total candor and honesty.

Once he begins to tell of his case experiences, I was chuckling to myself because it had some of the feel of Forrest Gump. Here is this normal guy, whom I know, and he turns out to be a key player in one high-profile case after another. This guy made a real difference in the history of our country! My admiration grew. But then the book turns a corner, and becomes so much more than a play-by-play recap of an exciting and challenging career.

As I have come to know Steve over the past couple of years, his love for his wife has been obvious. So to have to read the story of how he very nearly tossed the whole relationship was very difficult for me. More than any other aspect of the book, I am proud of Steve (and of Michelle) for having the guts and strength to dig in and make their marriage work when every sign (and probably most of their friends) were telling them it was over and time to move on. I have been at the end of a marriage and I know exactly how it feels. Deciding to "make it work" is hard. It's a grown-up decision. It takes a special man.

And so I close this book with a deep respect and admiration for my friend Steve. Our country was blessed to have his service for 25 years. His family is blessed to have him, forever.
