Hear about the life of a special agent

Written by 

A former FBI agent and terrorist hunter will discuss his new book at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 14, in the Hinds University Center theater at Western Carolina University.

In the book, Special Agent Man: My Life in the FBI as a Terrorist Hunter, Helicopter Pilot, and Certified Sniper (Chicago Review Press, August 2012), author and former FBI agent Steve Moore strips away the glamour, fantasy and politics of the G-Man lifestyle and reveals the day-to-day thrills, struggles and triumphs of the grind as one of America’s unsung heroes. 

Beginning as a naïve 26-year-old conducting surveillance of the most ruthless white supremacists the FBI had encountered, he wound up supervising the counter-terrorist squad investigating al-Qaeda following 9/11. In the two decades between, Moore went on missions as a SWAT member and a certified sniper, tailed serial killers and high-value targets via helicopter and plane, and worked undercover in some of the most perilous and nerve-wracking situations imaginable.

Known as the go-to-guy for the biggest and most hazardous cases in the Los Angeles office, Moore enjoyed a career far more eclectic than the average FBI agent, from tracking the most dangerous criminals in the United States to spanning the globe gathering critical intelligence on terrorists.

And yet, here we were, drinks in hand, smiles plastered across our faces, as family members and dates for the wedding stood in front of us, eager to capture the moment we all were huddled as one.
