From an FBI insider, a riveting, fly-on-the-wall account of the historic investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russia and the president's unprecedented attacks on the bureau—and a passionate defense of the men and women who work every day to uphold democratic institutions and the rule of law. Titled after the FBI code name for the initial investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, CROSSFIRE HURRICANE chronicles President Trump's relentless attacks on the FBI. Josh Campbell, a career special agent who served under Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald J. Trump before resigning from the FBI in February 2018, takes readers behind the scenes of the Russia investigation’s earliest days and makes a compelling case that Trump's campaign of attack poses a threat to public safety. Campbell, who has twelve years' experience working on some of the FBI's highest-profile operations and is now a national security expert for CNN, was special assistant to James Comey. Using a combination of firsthand experience and reporting from sources still within the Bureau, he offers an inside perspective into the FBI that will captivate readers struggling to make sense of a news cycle careening out of control.


“Josh Campbell’s book offers extraordinary and entertaining stories at the center of the Trump storm. With experience, humanity, and humor, Josh brings the reader deep inside the FBI during some of its most difficult days. And by making the bittersweet decision to leave his beloved FBI to speak about the institution as a journalist, he is able to offer the unique perspective of both Special Agent and CNN analyst.”
—James Comey, former director of the FBI and bestselling author of A Higher Loyalty

“Josh Campbell had the ultimate insider’s perch as President Trump initiated the greatest crisis in the modern history of the F.B.I. Crossfire Hurricane is his fascinating account of those tumultuous days and a vivid reminder of the importance of honor and candor in law enforcement and politics.”
Jeffrey Toobin, CNN Chief Legal Analyst and author of American Heiress: The Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty Hearst

“An indispensable and riveting insider’s account of one of the most dramatic and controversial periods in the history of the FBI. Crossfire Hurricane is a must-read for all Americans.” 
—Daniel Silva, New York Times bestselling author
