Take a wild ride with former Witness Security Inspector George Dapra for a rare, insider’s look into the Witness Security Program.
In this compelling human event story, Dapra takes us on a fascinating life journey, beginning with his childhood growing up in a large Italian-American family with immigrant parents. From the military, college, and employment at the world-famous Hotel Plaza, Dapra shares vignettes of all life’s emotions. The climax is Dapra’s employment as an Inspector with the United States Marshal’s Witness Security Program in New York City—at the height of the government’s war against organized crime. Dapra also describes other protective details including the much-publicized Elian Gonzalez case.
Non-Disclosure is the first sneak peek authorized by the United States Department of Justice into the secret government program, so fasten your seat belts, and don’t forget to pass the parmesan!
"An absolutely riveting account of the U.S. Marshal Service’s Witness Security Division during the tumultuous final decades of the twentieth century. George Dapra’s first-hand experience as a United States Marshal in the battle against the Organized Crime Syndicate and al Qaeda is as compelling as it is engaging. A truly masterful read." Colonel Cole C. Kingseed, co-author of the New York Times best-selling Beyond Band of Brothers: The War Memoirs of Major Dick Winters.
