4 de abril de 2013
What has mystery, romance, humor, action, intrigue, adventure and over 999,000 characters? The answer is Breaking Tecumseh's Curse, the inspirational, informative and exciting memoir written by Jan Marie and Bob Ritter. It relates the couple's early years together when Bob was a special agent with the United States Secret Service in Washington, D.C. "It's the first Secret Service book told from a spouse's perspective," says author Jan Marie Ritter. Rich in emotion, Breaking Tecumseh's Curse is the heartfelt love story of a young couple's journey through some extraordinary times. From 1840 to 1960, every United States president elected or reelected in a year ending in zero died in office. Of those seven presidents, four were assassinated. Breaking Tecumseh's Curse unfolds the real-life adventures of the U.S. Secret Service agent who tried to change tomorrow. Through enhanced protective methods and procedures, Secret Service Agent Bob Ritter hoped to prevent a similar fate for the president elected in 1980, Ronald Reagan. Some never before published information regarding the Reagan assassination attempt is revealed. There's also an exciting, historical look at assassination and the Secret Service including a provocative profile of accused JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. Breaking Tecumseh's Curse spotlights a dangerous period for the Secret Service-from 1972-1982. During that time, five assassination attempts took place against persons protected by the USSS, more than any other era. The book presents the historic events of the time and a rare insider's look at the Secret Service. The little-known field of protective intelligence is featured. With hope for preventing future tragedies, some successful strategies for predicting dangerousness in individuals are also explored. Bob's mantra of "desperate people are dangerous people" and assessment techniques developed by him jump off the page at a time when violence, terrorism, and mass murders are all too often in the news. "We can change our tomorrows," declare the Ritters. Join Bob Ritter and his fellow agents for fun, adventure, and some sorrow too as they try to break Tecumseh's Curse.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Compelling Secret Service History with Real Life Intertwined 7 de mayo de 2013

As the daughter of a Secret Service agent, I remember the exact day that I realized what my Father's job really was - to die for someone else! I bought this book hoping to learn more about the Secret Service and specifically the history of Tecumseh's Curse. I was not disappointed. Exceptionally researched history was intertwined with the side of the story that many American citizens don't think about - the human side of these Secret Service Agents who pledge to protect the President at all costs. A great read, well written and easy to follow for a history afficionado as well as a lay person. I recommend this book for anyone interested in Secret Service History, the History of Tecumseh's Curse, as well as personal accounts of the times.

I FOUND THIS TO BE EXTREMELY WELL WRITTEN AND VERY INFORMATIVE. I HAVE HAD MORE THAN ONE CONTACT WITH AGENTS, BOTH PROFESSIONALY AND PERSONALLY. I NEVER KNEW MUCH ABOUT THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES, OTHER THAN THE POTUS PROTECTION. I NOW KNOW THROUGH THIS BOOK THERE ARE SO MANY FACETS OF THE SECRET SERVICE THAT ARE VERY MUCH BEHIND WHAT THE PUBLIC SEE'S. THE INFORMATION WAS VERY WELL PRESENTED BY THE AUTHOR IN A MANNER THAT DISPLAYED HER EMOTIONS AND THE EFFECT THE POSITION HAD ON THE FAMILY'S QUALITY OF LIFE.IT ALSO SHOWED THE CHARACTER AND INTEGRITY OF THE SPECIAL AGENT'S.
I WAS IMPRESSED WITH THE BOOK TO THE POINT I FOUND IT DIFFICULT TO PUT DOWN. I ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW WHERE THE NEXT CHAPTER TOOK ME. IN CONCLUSION, EXCELLENT READING.

The book is somewhat long, but once I got into it that faded into the background. It is a narrative of many interesting anecdotes that chronicle life inside the Secret Service. Breaking Tecumseh's Curse focuses on a short period during the 1970s and early 1980s, but working for the Secret Service probably hasn't changed a lot since then. Several themes are apparent: Working top level security has its adventures and rewards but demands a huge amount of time and commitment, as well as a tolerance for bureaucratic office politics. A Secret Service agent must discard the notion of a predictable 9-5 weekday work schedule. The job can dominate one's life and heavily affect one's family. This book doesn't sugarcoat or glamorize executive security.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Excellent Secret Service book for the enthusiast (like me)! 16 de abril de 2013

As someone very much interested in the history of the Secret Service (and the author of a forthcoming book on the same subject), I was most interested to see just what this book had to offer. Well, let me tell you: I was not disappointed. Well written and structured, this volume does a nice job conveying the author's journey in the agency, among other things. I was glad to see former Reagan SAIC Robert DeProspero mentioned (as he is in Del Wilber's and Joe Petro's books), as he is a favorite of mine, but I digress. Buy this one asap!

Author Jan Ritter does a great job portraying the unrelenting honor exuded by her husband Bob, during his tenure as a Senior Special Agent with the Secret Service. I am impressed with Special Agent Ritter's willingness to combat the suffocating effects of bureaucracy, while dedicating his life to protecting the president. This should be required reading for all new agents - Jon Adler, FLEOA President
