I thought it a noble endeavor for the authors of RICO to clear the name of an innocent man. To take on the enormity of researching and relaying a story involving all of the false charges against H. Paul Rico, FBI Agent, was an onerous task. However, with Joe Wolfinger and Chris Kerr having been agents themselves, it was second nature for them to uncover the truth.
In this interesting and compelling tale, the authors have succeeded in vindicating the name of a fine and decent fellow agent who would otherwise have been forever wronged and maligned. Joe Wolfinger, Chris Kerr and Jerry Seper must be commended for their exposé of truth and the redemption of Mr. Rico's honor. LLC
Excellent book. A bit redundant in spots but considering the complexity of the subject it is well written. Paul Rico was treated most shabbily by some in law enforcement. Feel sorry for him (RIP) and the treatment of his family.
After reading this book I have to wonder where the "investigative" journalists were while this was going on. I am sure there were a number of them following this case, but how come they didn't come up with any of this information. Or did they just not care, as there were to many juicy stories to go along with the charges against Rico. I hope this book at least gives some comfort to his family and I hope that because of this book this matter is re-opened in hopes of clearing his name. One of Rico's main mistakes was not listening to any attorney and thinking he could testify to a bunch of politicians who were looking for blood. After a lifetime of serving his country in the military and law enforcement, I guess he thought he could tell the truth and be believed. For him that was a fatal mistake.
Any reader with a sense of fairness and justice will experience a great amount of sadness and fury while discovering the deliberate actions of a great number of participants over many years. The especially egregious actions and comments of the involved investigators, judges and politicians who are willing to spew forth their venom while totally disregarding or ignoring the relevent facts involved. The history of this case is especially disturbing to persons such as me who have devoted their entire careers and lives to seeking protection and justice for the citizenry while serving as police officers, FBI Agents and other dedicated members of the justice system. My heart goes out to the family and close friends of such an honorable personage as exemplified by the late H. Paul Rico. Having worked in the fight against organized crime during my career in law enforcement, it is indeed difficult to comprehend the naivete and/or biases of the judges and prosecutors involved in sad story. To the authors, I salute you for a difficult job researching this story which had to be distributed in order to recognize the diligent and sometimes thankless efforts and accomplishments during his illustrious career. Well done!
