Descripción del producto

What has mystery, romance, humor, adventure and over 999,000 characters? The answer is Breaking Tecumseh's Curse, the memoir written by Jan Marie and Bob Ritter. Although painstakingly researched and true, the book is written in the entertaining style of a narrative novel. Nonfiction at its best!

It relates the couple's early years together when Bob was an 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. 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 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 and mass murders are all too often in the news. We can change our tomorrows.

Join Bob Ritter and his fellow agents for fun, adventure, and some sorrow too as they try to break Tecumseh’s Curse.
