Editorial Reviews

Review

"Mindermann worked as an FBI agent on Watergate and witnessed the shadowy intrigue that episode trailed in its wake. By the end of this particular tale--with its on-the-spot anecdotes, finding and following the money trail, and profiles of major characters...few will contest Mindermann's suggestion that "Watergate was an FBI story," with all due respect to The Washington Post. Mindermann spent most of his life in the company of murderous bottom-feeders, and the chronicles of their takedowns benefit from his Technicolor delivery. Both sophisticated and rowdy..." --Kirkus Reviews

From the Inside Flap

IN PURSUIT--excerpts
 
"All it takes is a few people in positions of power to lose their ethical compass."
 
"Interference and aggressive efforts by Nixon's White House to shut down the FBI's Watergate 'locomotive' were immediate and substantial. It was gloves off--the bare-knuckle fight was on."
 
"Within days, a core conspiracy began emerging, with all signs pointing to CREEP (Nixon's Committee to RE-Elect the President) as the entity behind Watergate."
 
"The arrested burglars were trained, hardened intelligence operatives--battle-experienced soldiers caught in an illegal, clandestine operation with serious consequences and far-reaching implications for our nation's most powerful political people."
 
"The 'Saturday Morning Massacre' by [FBI Acting Director] L. Patrick Gray had a huge impact on everyone. Gray's debacle turned committed Agents into furious, fired-up, get-out-of-our-way Agents. His tirade had the effect of a pep talk. Instead of weakening our resolve, it achieved the opposite."
 
"An expert in counterintelligence, Felt [Deep Throat] would have been schooled in double-dealing, enticing, threatening, blackmailing, misdirecting, and planting false stories. Might you become prone, or at least tempted, to test limits and push boundaries after years of such pursuits?"
 
"Navigating Watergate's dark voyage, we faced consistent, intense adversity--real and contrived--ambiguity, and immense pressure. Our motivation was to do the right thing, push relentlessly with fierce resolve, identify the rotten core, expose it, and excise it."

"San Francisco in the 1960s was a hotbed of social and political upheaval hearkening back to the freewheeling days of the Barbary Coast."
 
"Police work seemed adventurous, mysterious, unpredictable, spontaneous, even dramatic, with a certain mystique--the element of the 'hunt.' Wide-open opportunities existed to initiate and engage in entrepreneurial "on view" criminal encounters. The whole package was contagious."
