Interesting memoir by a woman who was one of the first female FBI agents, including personal anecdotes, insider information about high-profile cases (including the apprehension of the Unabomber), and general musing about the function of the FBI.

Very interesting story of one of the first women in the FBI. Candice's "route" to the job obviously tells an amazing story of one strong woman. Reading it in 2010 reminds you that it really wasn't that long ago that women's skills/talents were viewed sooo differently. It's a true story of a brave and courageous woman.

Very interesting read,- her previous career as a psych nurse, fight against male bias, and great cases she worked on. I didn't want to put it down!

This book is written by one of the first women to enter the FBI academy and to subsequently become an agent. Her story is truly amazing. She was involved in some very interesting cases including the Unibomber case. This was a very enjoyable read.
