KIRKUS REVIEW

With a top writer like Reynolds to do the story of our government police force, this turns out to be a fast moving and authentic survey of the G-men and their duties. Reynolds' manner of telling the story is a personal one and after a brief history of the organization, its aims and operation, he follows the career of a typical agent J--- S--- from his first desire to be an F.B.I. man through the catching of such spies as Klaus Fuchs and Harry Gold. Stressing the necessity of higher education, there is J---'s law school training as it prepared him for the F.B.I., his first months as a recruit and the careful steps in training that led to actual case work. A full, factual account, definitely meat for young interested.
