THE F.B.I. STORY by Don Whitehead


Email this review


The first adult history of the F. B. I. makes absorbingly interesting reading with its adroit combination of the chronological history and the reporting of some of the spectacular cases handled through the years. For a starter, the recent case of the plane dynamited by Graham provides a demonstration of the efficiency with which the F. B. I. works today in comparison with the amateurish methods it used when it began in Theodore Roosevelt's day. Continuing, material covers espionage and sabotage in World War I, scandals under Harding, the breaking of the crime leaders and the success with which investigation has been put on a high level of trained, scientific procedure. A book that should prove of immense interest.
