Summary, etc.:
What events led a veteran Secret Service agent at the top of his profession, with no political experience, to resign his position and run for office, nearly pulling off the unlikeliest of upsets as a Republican in a deep-blue state? More importantly, what insight on issues from national and personal security to big politics can be gleaned from his successes as a Secret Service agent and failures in politics? As a former member of the elite Presidential Protection Division who served three Presidents, bestselling author Dan Bongino is uniquely qualified to provide a view from behind the curtain to warn readers about the political system that is failing them, and the security future that won't protect them. --page [2] of cover.
