''I have known the author of this book for over thirty years. This is a book that had to be written to correct any distortions of truth and innuendo that surrounded DeLoach's more than twenty-eight years in the FBI, his role as number three man in the Bureau, and the career of J. Edgar Hoover during that period.'' --Jack Anderson, newspaper columnist and Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist
''Deke DeLoach has been in a unique position to know all there is to know concerning J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI during his era. This book should be widely read.'' --Paul Harvey, radio commentator and author
''No other person in the world knows more about J. Edgar Hoover than Cartha D. 'Deke' DeLoach. He was third in command at the FBI--the assistant to the director and a personal confidant. Deke 'tells it like it is'--the unblemished truth. You can totally rely on the information in this book.'' --Samuel L. Devine, US Congressman and former FBI special agent --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

After retiring from the service in 1970, he served as president of PepsiCo for fifteen years. Following the death of director Hoover, Deloach was twice offered the directorship of the Bureau but chose to stay in corporate life.

Mr. DeLoach does two major things. First, he gives a spellbinding account of the life and career of J. Edgar Hoover. Secondly, he defends Mr. Hoover from the many critics who were springing up during the time Hoover's FBI was written.
Because of Mr. DeLoach's close association with Mr. Hoover and his staff -- C. D. DeLoach was third in command -- it is not intended to be sensational, like the other books that have been written to apparently just make money for their authors. I believe that this book is a more accurate account of Mr. Hoover and his FBI.
Hoover's FBI clarifies many aspects of the FBI and gives the reader a more intimate understanding of its history and day by day mission.
While telling the facts about Mr. Hoover and his associates, Mr. DeLoach brings the reader into a more accurate understanding of his own life, as well as the lives of other key people in the service of our nation.
I recommend this book to anybody who wants the facts and for all who want the thrill of the FBI's role in protecting America. If you think that the FBI is a national police force, you definitely need to read Hoover's FBI.
In a way, the very unpretentiousness of DeLoach's account is its strength. You come away from it, not liking Hoover, but respecting him.
