Zero Fail: The Rise and Fall of the Secret Service by Carol Leonnig: Conversation Starters
In Zero Fail: The Rise and Fall of the Secret Service, three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Carol Leonnig weaves together the firsthand accounts of more than 180 people–ranging from former and current agents, officers, and directors, government officials in previous administrations, and other witnesses—related to the evolution of the Secret Service through the years. The hundreds of hours spent interviewing these individuals, who upheld their anonymity for fear of repercussions, coupled with thorough research and extensive reviews of thousands of documents, including the presidential archives and Secret Service reports, allowed Leonnig to paint an unpopular picture of the agency failing to live up to its name and maintaining its place at the zenith of presidential security. Zero Fail missions were based not on skills or technology but on lackluster “dumb luck,” as she describes in the book.
A certified New York Times bestseller, Zero Fail garnered an almost-perfect score of 4.6 out of 5 stars based on 4,168 global ratings on Amazon while sitting atop the website’s various book charts.
