Mark Johnston, Ph.D, a retired Employee Assistance Program professional and FBI law enforcement agent, humanitarian, children’s activist, published writer and author, has completed his newest work “FBI & an Ordinary Guy – The Private Price of Public Service”: a gripping and potent biography about the life of a law enforcement agent.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Mark Johnston’s profound work will keep the reader on the edge of their seat through the stories of laughter, fear and justice.

"FBI & An Ordinary Guy, -The Private Price of Public Service" is a memoir about the many chilling, sometimes comical, events in a career as an FBI agent and the personal price some of us paid. For me, coming from a rough childhood I confronted the choices of becoming a clergyman, crook or cop. As an FBI agent in New York and other large American cities, we faced outlaw motorcycle gangs, the Mafia, drug kingpins, and terrorists; land pirates. I personally had many successes, but hard-won victories eventually sapped my energy and spirit. Along the way I had to come to grips with the murders of a squad partner, two New York City cops and several government witnesses. The public knows little about the stress and high emotional costs the guardians of their safety pay in the constant battle against crime and terror. The favorite antidotes of many law enforcement peers —crawling into a bottle or the wrong bed—proved to provide little long-lasting comfort. "FBI & an Ordinary Guy" reveals the inner working of the FBI, the humanness of its family members, and the real life story behind some of its major cases,” said author Mark Johnston.
“But, this factual account is told through a genuine framework of the bitter sweet contrast of the gritty horrors of law enforcement versus affectionate father to daughter communication via never mailed letters to my children.”

Readers who wish to experience this memoir can purchase“FBI & an Ordinary Guy – The Private Price of Public Service” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
