Retired Special Agent James McGee offers readers a first-hand account of what it s like to be on the inside of one of the world s most elite counter-terrorism teams. On par with the British SAS and the Navy SEALs, the FBI Hostage Rescue Team is a group of highly trained men willing to sacrifice their own lives to save the lives of others. In 1991, a violent group of Cuban inmates in the Federal Correctional Institute in Talladega, Alabama, overpowered their guards and took hostages, demanding not to be deported to Cuba. As days wore on and tension escalated, the hostage takers threatened to start killing hostages. But the FBI HRT exists for just such situations. Witness the preparation and anticipation as the Team reaches Phase Line Green.
