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.
