Behind the Shades: A Female Secret Service Agent's True Story


What was it really like to be one of the first five female US Secret Service agents?

As a kid growing up in OHIO, Sue Ann Baker idolized Wonder Woman and Sheena, Queen of the Jungle. She dreamed of fighting crime, striving for justice, and becoming a leader as self-assured and savvy as her heroes.

When, in 1971, the US Secret Service decided to hire the first five female agents, Sue Ann got her chance. She entered the clandestine world and traversed the globe guarding foreign and domestic dignitaries. She also put her investigative skills to the test exposing counterfeiters and check forgers.

With her Smith & Wesson, her radio, and her wits, Sue Ann navigated a new frontier for woman. And like all frontiers, Baker's was full of challenges she could never have antecipated. Published in honor of the 150th anniversary of the Secret Service, this eye-opening memoir follows one woman's quest to crack the glass ceiling, and serves as a timely reminder that it hasn't shattered yet.
