Covering more than 30 years of history and coming right up until the present day of the Obama administration's response to terrorist attacks like that on Christmas Day 2009 in Detroit, the book explores the transformation of the FBI from a domestic law enforcement agency, handling bank robberies and local crimes, into an international intelligence agency--with more than 500 agents operating in more than 60 countries overseas today--fighting extremist terrorism, cyber crimes, and, for the first time, American suicide bombers.
Brilliantly reported and suspensefully told, "The Threat Matrix" peers into the darkest corners of this secret war and will change your view of the FBI forever.

richly detailed portrait of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in its

now with preventing at least some of them...There's solid storytelling
at work here--and quite a story to tell, too."
