"Rife with anecdotes of assassinations, nuclear threats and double agents."--"Oklahoma Gazette""Revealing . . . Burton was there, and you will be as well."--Bobby R. Inman, former director of the National Security Agency"The world of counterterrorism is like that old jigsaw puzzle in the back of the closet: Its many missing pieces and extra parts jumbled in from other puzzles make it almost impossible to assemble. But in Ghost, Fred Burton manages to join together enough pieces to give us a discerning look at that world. This is a story, told in human terms, that will help make sense of the great puzzle of our times." --Eric L. Haney, author of Inside Delta Force and executive producer of "The Unit""Striking . . . With spy thriller suspense and the clarity of a police report, former special agent Burton's State Department saga reads like a brewing-storm prequel to the current war on terror."--"Publishers Weekly ""From the Trade Paperback edition."
