No Heroes: Inside the FBI's Secret Counter-Terror Force Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Includes all-new material for this edition: the latest intelligence from the man who came forward with the truth about Waco.

After a career that spanned three decades, Danny O. Coulson now uncovers the secretive world of the FBI's Hostage Rescue Team, or HRT — the civilian equivalent of the U.S. military's elite Delta Force — a group that executes perilous missions in crises too volatile for SWAT teams.

In a catalog of some of the most notorious criminal events of the last thirty years, Coulson provides his own enthralling firsthand accounts and reflective personal opinions of his experiences in bringing hundreds of murderous extremists and killers to justice — from the Black Liberation Army police assassins to the treacherous white supremacist terrorists of the Order and the Covenant, Sword and Arm of the Lord; from the Atlanta prison riots to the controversial sieges at Ruby Ridge and Waco; and his investigations into the World Trade Center and Oklahoma City bombings.

The narrative springs to life with nerve-tingling electricity as Coulson discloses the tactics and the teamwork of HRT snipers, operators, and negotiators, as well as experts in assaults, electronics, and explosives — and explains why, on our future path to justice, there must be No Heroes.

About the Author
