Publisher's Summary

Be prepared for a peek behind the governmental veil and historical perspectives never before shared. Dictators and Diplomats is a fascinating memoir offering a glimpse into the extraordinary life of a US Security Attaché. Robert W. Starnes' international law enforcement career took him to six continents while encountering terrorism, counterintelligence, executive protections, and criminal investigations. 

  • Relive a chemical terrorist threat in New Zealand against US golfer Tiger Woods. 
  • Return to Libya during Col. Muammar Gaddafi's dictatorial reign. 
  • Become stranded in Brazil with a suspected high-ranking Hezbollah terrorist. 
  • Relish in the success of disrupting a Lebanese terrorist plot to bomb a US Embassy.
  • Arrest a Pakistani defector and terrorist two weeks from joining the US Army Airborne. 
  • Run the gauntlet of a planned siege of a US Embassy during a coup d'état. 
  • Experience brushes with death during Guatemala's civil war. 
  • Scour the Samoan jungles to rescue children from an abusive behavior modification camp. 
  • Restore security after the arson attack against the Texas Governor's Mansion. 
  • Enact an Elliott Nest strategy used against gangster Al Capone to disrupt mafia figures. 
  • Trade moves with the infamous Love Bandit who stole the hearts of lonely women.   

You'll enjoy these adventurous reflections in this well-written memoir that is factual, informative, honest, and, at times, cleverly humorous.

a little disappointing

it sounded like a robot reading and I expected more from the story. I wouldn't recommend this.
