The Director: My Years Assisting J. Edgar Hoover
Mr. Letersky worked for the FBI in Washington, DC from 1965 to 1973, first as a clerk in the Bureau’s prestigious Crime Records Division and then for two years as one of the support assistants in the Office of FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover. Mr. Letersky came to the Bureau right after obtaining a college degree and obtained a law degree at night while working full time at the Bureau’s headquarters. He later became an FBI Special Agent for several years before leaving the Bureau for another, more lucrative job opportunity in the private sector. In this book, he presents an interesting, entertaining, and informative story that is part autobiographical and presents insights on what it was like to work for Hoover, one of the most powerful and well-known men in the Nation, and for the FBI.
