Summary
Certain that the US government will disavow his account, the author nevertheless claims to have been a contract assassin for the Central Intelligence Agency. In this memoir, he describes his work for the Agency, from his recruitment out of Purdue University's NROTC program in 1971, through his targeting and killing of members of West Germany's Baader-Meinhoff Group (also know as the Red Army Faction), his involvement with the Hell's Angels while operating a health club in California, and his involvement in interrogating "War on Terror" detainees at the US Naval Base in Guantanamo (where, he claims, prisoners were treated humanely). He also chronicles his descent into alcoholism and his abuse of steroids. Distributed in the US by Books International. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
