Author of the upcoming book SECRETS OF THE SECRET SERVICE (December 2017)

4 STAR REVIEW (WAS BRIEFLY 5 STARS WHEN IT FIRST APPEARED):
Enjoyed following the trail of well-researched evidence with the sleuth author., August 2, 2017

As the co-writer for former Secret Service Officer Gary Byrne, author of Crisis of Character, another Secret Service book, Gary and I found the Not-So Secret Service a very interesting and well researched read as we continue our own works and research. I enjoyed his tone and how he uses evidence in every instance of his points. He clearly yet neatly goes from commentary to objectivity as he breaks down the lesser known or never before publicly known mysteries of the Secret Service. His work on the Kennedy driver that died of a heart attack prior to the assassination was especially interesting and well researched. This book is also a tribute to many of the Secret Service veterans as well as education at large by keeping history alive.

I Am a Secret Service Agent: My Life Spent Protecting the President by former agent Dan Emmett

ESSENTIAL PURCHASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I Am a Secret Service Agent: My Life Spent Protecting the President                               


by former agent Dan Emmett
https://www.amazon.com/Secret-Service-Agent-Protecting-President/dp/1250130301/ref=pd_rhf_eetyp_p_img_4?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=ZYDN3EAJAA49AMKEYR8P




Dan Emmett was just eight years old when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. From that moment forward, he knew he wanted to become a Secret Service agent, one of an elite group of highly trained men and women dedicated to preserving the life of the President of the United States at any cost, including sacrificing their own lives if necessary. Armed with single-minded determination and a never-quit attitude, he did just that. Selected over thousands of other highly qualified applicants to become an agent, he was eventually chosen to be one of the best of the best and provided protection worldwide for Presidents George Herbert Walker Bush, William Jefferson Clinton, and George W. Bush.
I Am a Secret Service Agent skillfully describes the duties and challenges of conducting presidential advances, dealing with the media, driving the President in a bullet-proof limousine, running alongside him through the streets of Washington, and flying with him on Air Force One. With fascinating anecdotes, Emmett weaves keen insight into the unique culture and history of the Secret Service with the inner workings of the White House. I Am A Secret Service Agent is a must read for young adults interested in a career in federal law enforcement.

About the Author



MY AMAZON REVIEW:
5 stars out of 5: THE definitive memoir on the Secret Service BY a tremendous former agent!, June 16, 2017

Former agent Dan Emmett has truly honored the Secret Service with the writing of this book. In my learned opinion, after studying the Secret Service for many years and reading dozens upon dozens of books related to the agency, this very fine book is the best one ever written and perhaps will never be matched. Many books on the agency are dry, clinical studies of the agency, sanitized chronicles of a perhaps too-safe perspective, or tabloid-type historical junk, high on controversy but low on true substance.

Dan Emmett has written a book for the ages. From 1865 to the present time, the Secret Service has stood guard over the nation's currency and/or its presidents. In this same period of time, only one agency-related book rises above all others: I Am A Secret Service Agent.

Well done, Agent Emmett. Thank you for your service to our country.

KINDLE 4/21/17; PAPERBACK 5/1/17; MY BEST BOOK

THE NOT-SO-SECRET SERVICE: AGENCY TALES FROM FDR TO THE KENNEDY ASSASSINATION TO THE REAGAN ERA
 
I am very excited about my third book THE NOT-SO-SECRET SERVICE: AGENCY TALES FROM FDR TO THE KENNEDY ASSASSINATION TO THE REAGAN ERA! This one is my best one yet! I know a lot of authors probably feel this way about their latest work, but, in this instance, it is the truth. My first one SURVIVOR’S GUILT is a very good textbook style volume that has a necessarily narrow focus (the JFK assassination), while my second one is openly a reference work (with the same narrow focus that, admittedly, is probably more for the serious student/researcher on the case). While I am proud of my first two books, this one is the most readable, the most diverse (FDR, Truman, Ike, JFK, LBJ, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan era Secret Service), and contains some explosive chapters related to the JFK assassination that will really get people talking! KINDLE COMING  4/21/17; PAPERBACK COMING 5/1/17  (like the other two, Kindle, paperback and E-book formats…even the Nook. I am a proud TRINE DAY author. I even have a FOURTH book completed, but I am getting ahead of myself). I cannot wait for you to read this one! Finally- a book you can take to the beach that may make you not want to go into the water; too much to ponder! There are POSITIVE chapters in the book (not all doom and gloom or critical assessments), yet I feel the JFK-related chapters will really get people fired up! I am very excited about this one- can you tell?

MY THIRD BOOK COMING 5/1/17: "THE NOT-SO-SECRET SERVICE" !!!!!!!!!

MY BEST BOOK COMING 5/1/17: "THE NOT-SO-SECRET SERVICE"

https://www.amazon.com/Not-So-Secret-Service-Agency-Kennedy-Assassination/dp/1634241207/ref=pd_rhf_dp_p_img_4?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=BCDHEARMMF8T2N4H5ZT0




FDR, Truman, Ike, JFK, LBJ, Nixon, Ford, Carter and Reagan: ALL these eras with regard to the Secret Service are explored via many interviews and correspondence with former agents and White House aides and much primary research. This is the most readable, most illustrated (photos and news articles), most diverse, and simply the BEST of my three books to date (I have a fourth completed- more on that later)!

- Gerald Blaine's book is thoroughly and decisively DEBUNKED even further than what was accomplished in my first book;

-some amazing agents are analyzed thru the decades;

-and...so much more!!

I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS BOOK! My admiration for the Secret Service (especially certain agents) and my CRITICISM of their performance on 11/22/63 both come shining through. My first book was a very good textbook with a narrow focus (the Secret Service in regard to the JFK assassination); my second book was a very good reference book, again with a decidedly narrow focus (again, the JFK assassination, albeit the medical evidence aspect)...my third book is a great BOOK that demonstrates that I am no "one-trick pony": I am interested in history, other presidents (beside JFK) and the Secret Service, in general (my fourth book carries my Secret Service expertise even further along, but I digress).


I HOPE YOU GET MY THIRD BOOK The Not-So-Secret Service: Agency Tales from FDR to the Kennedy Assassination to the Reagan Era       5/1/2017

FROM AMAZON:
While there haven't been many Secret Service related books about U.S. presidents, the ones still in print (and even those long out of print) are often sanitized memoirs of a politically correct nature or "tell-all" tabloid historical junk meant merely for entertainment purposes. The Not-So-Secret Service provides the facts with the bark off, so to speak, and reveals politically incorrect information of a decidedly unsafe nature. It may be controversial and against the grain, but this book is heavily documented and timely, as the Secret Service guards our political candidates, foreign dignitaries, and, of course, the President, the first family and the ex-presidents and their families.

JOE CLANCY + TRUMP SAIC, ETC.

ARROWS LEFT TO RIGHT: CURRENT SAIC OF PPD; TRUMP'S DETAIL LEADER DURING CAMPAIGN/ DEPUTY; GUARDED OBAMA WHEN HE WAS A CANDIDATE] WASHINGTON - Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh C. Johnson joins Director of U.S. Secret Service Joseph Clancy to deliver remarks at the USSS Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C., May 10, 2016. Official DHS photo by Barry Bahler

Outstanding Director Joe Clancy steps down

I think Joe, a damn good man, honestly cannot stomach Trump and his minions. This does NOT infer he would not do his job 100 percent as a professional...it tells me he came out of retirement for Obama (he was the former Special Agent in Charge and they were close) and he is choosing to go BACK into retirement without any fuss.

Secret Service and President Trump 1/20/17

Secret Service and President Trump 1/20/2017

Agents of the Presidential Protective Division (PPD)- some speculate that fake tactical arm(s) for easier access to machine gun or other firearms underneath were used. Some of the photos and the one video is compelling.
