The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump by Andrew G. McCabe

The Threat (2019) offers an inside look at America’s famous nation-wide law enforcement agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation or FBI. Written with the lucid precision you’d expect from a high-ranking former FBI official, this book depicts the organization’s inner workings, details the methods it uses to protect the public, and explains why terrorism and President Donald Trump are currently the nation’s biggest threats.

  • Law-enforcement buffs wondering how the FBI operates
  • Concerned Americans curious about how the organization protects them
  • Law-abiding citizens seeking to understand the FBI’s biggest challenges today

Andrew G. McCabe spent over two decades of his law-enforcement career working for the FBI. Initially working as a street agent investigating Eurasian organized crime, McCabe transferred to counterterrorism after September 11 and then continued to rise up the ranks. He served as deputy director – the FBI’s second-highest position – for two years and is now retired.
