If you could sum up Special Agent in three words, what would they be?
Gripping Every Moment
What was one of the most memorable moments of Special Agent?
There are so many memorable moments. Candice is not only one of the pioneers for women in the FBI but also one of the pioneers of the science-art of criminal profiling. Many of the cases you have already heard about???....she was there!!
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
One tough broad!!
Any additional comments?
Don't hesitate to purchase, especially in audio. I do hope Ms DeLong gives us more material. Im kind of devastated that its finished. I listened to it in less than 24 hours and will certainly listen again in the future.

I really like this rendition of DeLongs career. She gave a good overview of her struggles being a woman within a male dominated organization without overly focusing on it. Also, the cases she choose to discuss were relevant even fifteen years later after publication. She manages to convey interesting information and advice without being heavy handed. Many books of this ilk tend to be self-serving and credit-grabbing. I liked hearing how she played a part in the teams and how those teams became successful. Also, her discussion about how she almost lost her pension based upon her moonlighting was a bit discomforting. I am glad the FBI has embraced diversity.
I would have liked a little more color of what happened to some of the supporting agents like Ice woman. Also, perhaps a little more color on how the Bureau is changing and it appears from her work for the better. She narrated the book, I found the narration to be helpful as she added emphasis that was instrumental. If you are interested in the FBI, she offers a perspective that I recommend you listen -- it will be fast listen.

I thoroughly enjoy DeLong on Investigation Discovery and am subscribed to her podcast. Listening to this made me respect and love her even more.
When I began listening to her stories on ID, I thought she may have been playing it up for the cameras, especially with her quippy one liners. However, this book proved me wrong. Not only do her one liners appear unexpectedly, but at the perfect time!
She was also very much involved and instrumental in huge cases that are merely mentioned in the list of her credentials on ID. DeLong's experience in paving the way for women in the FBI prove her to be an expert in the fields of murder, mayhem, profiling, awareness, and, most interesting, undercover work.
