Kirkus Reviews: One of the best nonfiction books of 2011.
"Action-filled, richly detailed portrait of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in its new guise--charged not just with solving crimes already committed, but now with preventing at least some of them...There's solid storytelling at work here--and quite a story to tell, too."―Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"The Threat Matrix is...a well-told story and a reading pleasure."―The CIA journal Studies in Intelligence (September 2011)

"This is the story of the world these men and others created, the precedents they set, and the cases they worked that together established the groundwork for how we combat terrorism and international crime today." I very much appreciated chapter one, 1972, which brought me back to what I witnessed but had forgotten.
The book is divided in three sections chronologically with personal stories that were interviewed by the author on many agents and officials of the FBI which produced a well organized story that provides much credit to the agency. This work appears to have not been sanctioned by the agency and the author was provided full cooperation to compose the material. I found the chapter on SCOTBOM fascinating as to how the FBI had matured to inter-actor with other international organizations to bring the Lockerbie bombers' to justice.
This book provides excellent reference for the history of the FBI and recommend it to the interested reader.
