Description
The First Family Detail will tell the story of what it is like to be a secret service agent assigned to the first family and what agents have seen from the presidencies of Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower through George W. Bush and Barack Obama. The revelations enlighten our understanding of the lives of first ladies ranging from Pat Nixon and Betty Ford to Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama-as well as presidents, vice presidents, presidential candidates, former presidents, and their children. The book will cover the entire sweep of the agency's relationship with a president, from the moment a candidate announces a run for the oval office to his years out of office. Never before has protecting the president and his relatives been investigated with such breadth.

Description
Since publication of his bestselling book In the President's Secret Service, investigative reporter Ronald Kessler has continued to penetrate the wall of secrecy that surrounds the U.S. Secret Service, breaking the story that Secret Service agents who were to protect President Obama hired prostitutes in Cartagena, Colombia and revealing that the Secret Service allowed a third uninvited guest to crash a White House state dinner. Now, Kessler presents far bigger and more consequential stories about our nation's leaders and the agency sworn to protect them. Kessler widens his scope to include presidential candidates and former presidents after they leave the White House. In particular, he focuses on First Ladies, their children, and their relationships with the presidents. From observing reckless behavior that threatens the country's safety, to escorting presidential mistresses, to watching their own agency take risks that could result in an assassination, Secret Service agents know a secret world that Ronald Kessler exposes in breathtaking detail.--From publisher description.
