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.
