Publisher's Summary

Special Agents of the Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) have been on the front lines of securing diplomacy for over a century. From the Fall of Saigon to the U.S. embassy bombings in east Africa, and the Iranian Hostage Crisis to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, special agents of the DSS have relentlessly put their lives on the line to protect their fellow diplomats around the globe. Agents Unknown reveals the story of Cody Perron, a former Special Agent of the DSS, and his journey through the Middle East and Southeast Asia, negotiating international fugitive returns, interviewing ISIS hostages, and protecting the highest level U.S. government officials in some of the most volatile places in the world. Raw and unfiltered, Perron offers the perspective of a ground level agent revealing the unconventional duties and accomplishments as one of many “agents unknown."

Great book. A must read!

Cody did a great job on this book. His writing style is great and easy to read. Some stories will make you laugh, some will make you cry, but all will be great to read.

Worth the Listen

Not ever story from a former Government employee or Military personal need to be action packed and the protagonist doesn't need to be a harden grizzled killer. This felt like a friend telling me something exciting and informal while be entertaining and informational.

Awesome read!

I never knew much of anything about DSS, but this book gives a great insight into what I’m sure doesn’t even scratch the surface of what these special agents do day in and day out. Thank you, Cody, for sharing your experiences as a special agent - I hope you consider writing more about of what went on during those years!

Enjoyable and Easy Listen!

I really enjoyed listening to this story because I didn’t know much about DS agents. Was cool to hear about a very cool Unknown government agency that I had a very high probability of working with in my previous job. Thank you Cody!

Interesting, but . . .

The gratuitous swearing did not add anything and rather detracted in many instances. The stories were certainly interesting but would have benefited from a better reader.

Awesome!

Loved it! Good to hear an old friend's voice telling his story! So many accomplishments in a short period of time with DS. Definitely recommend!
