Palisades, NY (PRWEB) April 29, 2007
Louis Freeh, former Director of the FBI, has written the Foreword to Hunting the American Terrorist. Freeh expresses gratitude to authors Terry D.Turchie and Dr. Kathleen M. Puckett not only for "giving us" Hunting the American Terrorist but for solving "one of the most complex and dangerous crime sprees in our history."
"Hunting the American Terrorist is a landmark book" says Publisher Don Bracken of History Publishing Company. "It is a unique component of fast-paced, exciting investigation, coupled with a behavioral analysis of ten of the most notorious terrorists in the United States. Previously unpublished material is revealed, describing the psychological makeup of the lone terrorist mindset."
Terry Turchie is a former Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterterrorism Division of the FBI. His leadership was the driving force behind the capture of the two most elusive and solitary domestic terrorists in U.S. history, Ted Kaczynski and Eric Robert Rudolph. In 1999, he was called to Washington, D.C. as Deputy Assistant Director in the new Counterterrorism Division of the FBI. He is a recipient of the FBI Director's Award as well as the Attorney General's Award for Distinguished Service.
Dr. Kathleen M. Puckett was a founding member of the FBI National Security Division's Behavioral Analysis Program (BAP.)She was the primary behavioral expert during the UNABOM investigation, and she assisted Turchie in the investigation of Eric Rudolph in North Carolina in 1998. She received the Attorney General's Award for Distinguished Service the same year. In 2001, Dr. Puckett conducted a risk-assessment study of lone domestic terrorists, including Theodore Kaczynski, Timothy McVeigh, and Eric Rudolph, for the Counterterrorism Division of the FBI.
"Hunting the American Terrorist" will be in bookstores nationally in September, 2007.
