"A rapid-fire G-man memoir...The book is patriotic and oddly stirring." - Dwight Garner, The New York Times Book Review "Insightful...provocative...McCabe is a keen observer of detail." - The Washington Post "McCabe's portrait of the Trump administration and of the president himself is as alarming as any we have seen so far -- including those of journalists such as Bob Woodward and former staff such as Cliff Sims." - NPR "The account is laced with sharp, amusing characterizations...fans of police procedurals will love his descriptions of FBI culture, and critics of the current administration will find his denouncements satisfying. This is one of the better Trump-related tell-alls." - Publishers Weekly "McCabe's book speaks with bracing directness about what was going on and why it matters...anyone who has followed Trump will recognize the accuracy of the portrayal of him in The Threat. - Jeffrey Toobin, The New Yorker
