An interesting and insightful look into the FBI. This book will give the reader a better understanding of the inner workings of the FBI and integrity of some Agents and the lack of it in other Agents. A very powerful read. 
-- Joe Pistone, former FBI agent, author of "Donnie Brasco: My Undercover Life in the Mafia"

The Fall of the FBI
An FBI veteran explains how the Mueller–Comey cabal turned the FBI from a “swear to tell the truth” law-enforcement agency to a politicized intelligence organization.

Americans have lost faith in the Federal Bureau of Investigation, an institution they once regarded as the world’s greatest law-enforcement agency. Thomas Baker spent many years with the FBI and is deeply troubled by this loss of faith. Specific lapses have come to light and each is thoroughly discussed in this book: Why did they happen? What changed? The answer begins days after the 9/11 attacks when the FBI underwent a significant change in culture.

To understand how far the Bureau has fallen, this book shows the crucial role played by the FBI and its agents in past decades. It was quite often, as the reader will see from these firsthand experiences, a fun-filled adventure with exciting skyjackings, kidnappings, and bank robberies. At the same time, the reader will see the reverence the Bureau had for the Constitution and the concern agents held for the rights of each American.

This book is not mere memoir—it is history. From the shooting of President Reagan and the death of Princess Diana to the TWA 800 crash and even getting marching orders from St. Mother Teresa, Baker’s story shows how the FBI has played a pivotal role in our country’s history.


“There are a million stories in the life of an FBI Agent. Some can be, some should be, and others the FBI hopes are never told. Tom Baker, in his compelling book, The Fall of the FBI takes the reader through highlights of his remarkable career and offers an insight to what the FBI has meant to America. He also tells the story of other, more recent incidents, that do not reflect what the FBI has been. He offers suggestions on what must be done to restore this storied institution back to where it should be to protect, not sully, our nation.”
-- Richard A. Marquise, former FBI Special-Agent-in-Charge, author of "Scotbom: Evidence and the Lockerbie Investigation"
“For those of us who grew up admiring the FBI and were shocked by the agency’s behavior in the Russia Hoax, this is the book to read. Thomas Baker, a retired FBI official, tells us why this happened, how an American legend was gradually unraveled by incompetent management, dishonesty, and loss of, well, decency itself. Mr. Baker grew up in the agency, and in the old style rose to the management level, only to see his and his colleagues’ work devalued by the likes of James Comey and his coterie. Now we have an FBI that spies on Americans. It’s time for Congress to investigate and return the FBI to its former level of respect.”
-- Peter J. Wallison, former White House Counsel, author of "Ronald Reagan: The Power of Conviction and the Success of His Presidency"
“Tom Baker’s book is a must-read for those desiring to witness firsthand the career of a legendary FBI agent, as he brings the reader along from his days at the FBI Academy and beyond: kidnappings, airplane hijackings, espionage… even the attempted assassination of a sitting president. The author then tackles the thorny issues plaguing the FBI today, recognizing his beloved Bureau is ‘drifting away from its law enforcement moorings.’ Tom Baker’s stories are compelling, his insight is enlightening, and his conclusions are cogent.”
-- Greg Dillon, former FBI agent, author of "The Thin Blue Lie: An Honest Cop vs. The FBI"
