An early practitioner of profiling, the analysis of crime data for what it reveals about the perpetrator, DeLong handled such ugly cases that she and her partner at one point were known as the Gruesome Twosome. Her arrests included child molesters, rapists, and serial killers- among the books useful features are her tips on what to do if you or your child is attacked. (Yell Fire! rather than Help! she advises- it attracts more attention.) Not that human natures darker side was a surprise to DeLong, who came to the FBI from a job as head nurse in a maximum security psychiatric ward, where a violent paranoid schizophrenic crooned at her, You better pray I never get out of these [restraints].

I could cut your head off. Or do you want me to tear your heart out? The frank, conversational text ably captures the forceful personality of a female pioneer. The bureau had only been accepting women for eight years when DeLong joined in 1980, and her training at Quantico included brutal harassment by instructors determined to wash out any female applicant. Yet she had the toughness to survive and the good sense to know when to ignore her male colleagues barbed jokes and when to kid them right back. Ultimately, she made friends and got ahead.

As well as chronicling a stream of fascinating (and often deeply disturbing) high-profile cases such as the Unabomber, DeLongs narrative portrays a changing FBI, now valuing the special perspective contributed by female and African American agents it once scorned.
