What kind of research did you do for Incendiary Attraction?
Wow, I ended up doing months of indepth research, like scouring 6 FBI agents’ memoirs, an ATF agent’s memoir, multiple websites on white supremacy, a phone consult with retired ATF Senior Special Agent Cynthia Beebe, and blog posts from former members of a WS group on what that inner world was like and why it attracted him at the time.
I recommend all these memoirs if you’re interested in further knowledge about the lives of LEOs (law enforcement officers.) In no particular order:
Boots in the Ashes, by Cynthia Beebe (ATF memoir.)
What Every Body is Saying, by Joe Navarro (how to read body language.)
Special Agent, by Candace DeLong (memoir by one of the first females in the FBI.)
FBI DIARY: Home Grown Terror, by Peter M. Klismet, Jr
Extreme Ownership, by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin (about SEALs.)
Ghost: My Thirty Years as an FBI Undercover Agent by Michael R. McGowan and Ralph Pezzullo
The Pretender: My Life Undercover for the FBI by Marc Ruskin
