For this book, author Peter Schweizer has received unique access to some top Reagan Administration foreign policy officials (Caspar Weinberger, George Shultz, Bill Clark, Robert McFarlane, John Poindexter, Richard Allen) plus, even more impressively, some high-level Central Intelligence Agency operatives (Alan Fiers, Herb Meyer, Vincent Cannistraro, Dewey Clarridge) and a few other former high-level power-wielders. Most of these guys don't open up easily for interviews.

Death row inmate Richard Allen Davis, whose 1993 kidnap and murder of 12-year-old Polly Klaas led to California's three-strikes law, overdosed on opiates in his San Quentin Prison cell but was revived, officials said Monday. San Quentin Prison spokesman Vernell Crittendon said Davis was found unconscious in his cell at 5:13 p.m. Sunday.
The body of 12-year-old Polly Klaas, whose kidnaping touched off a two-month search that drew nationwide sympathy, was found near Cloverdale on Saturday after the suspect in the case told police where to look. At a news conference Saturday night, a shaken Petaluma Police Chief Dennis DeWitt and FBI Special Agent Jim R. Freeman gave few details of the discovery but said they were announcing that "Polly Klaas is dead." The body of the girl with wavy brown hair was found within sight of U.S.
