What did you love best about U.S. Marshals?
I consider myself somewhat of a virtuoso, researching The US Marshal Service extensively. My uncle presently a Marshal and appointed by the President once before as one of the 94 US Federal Marshals. But I have not gained knowledge from him personally as the Marshals are very humble, but it was my admiration for his character that inspired my fascination with the service. Stories were so true to life. Situations as serious, yet comical. Very descriptive.
What other book might you compare U.S. Marshals to and why?
Possibly the Raylin Givens series by Elmore Leonard. Although those books are not real-life, he has certainly done his research.
What about John Pruden’s performance did you like?
He narrated so realistically. I would listen for 4 hrs a stretch. He made you feel as if you were watching a movie.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
All of them. The stories were great and the informational facts were true to everything I have ever researched. The general public really has no idea that they actually are " the most effective law enforcement agency in the nation. Likely the most dangerous of jobs and still an extremely low loss of agents, considering the situations they are put in. Ancestors of author Mike Earp, Wyatt-Virgil-Morgan Earp-past Marshals, barely mentioned. Shows the way the US Marshal Service have of being fine behind the scenes. Their priority being to serve and protect the US citizens from the most dangerous felons right here in the United States. Having an especially deep concern for innocent and abused children and the injustice experienced by them.
Any additional comments?
The Marshals have a highly sophisticated network of diverse Intel. And they are very keen to human behaviour. The job is taken very seriously to serve and protect with little recognition and they are fine with that. They don't compete for glory and are extremely efficient. Most agencies are eager to either help, or use their expertise. Their duties are limitless and their arm is long. I have listened to the book 3 times!
