    It was pretty interesting. I had trouble following the events in the first few chapters since he kept going back and forth between his childhood and a later period of his life. The second part of the book talked more about the author's spiritual journey. I liked reading about all the missions he and his wife were involved in.

    This whole book held my attention from start to finish. Jerry Parr joined the Secret Service when I was a toddler and served until I was a young mother - so much of the history he was part of was familiar to me, but some in only a vague way. His experiences filled in the fascinating details - really brought things to life. This man continues to serve, long after he left government service - following God wherever He calls. It's a fascinating read and I recommend it most highly!!

    In the Secret Service did not seem like a book for me. It was on Tyndales 2014 Summer Reading Program list and the local library had the audio book. So, I went ahead and checked it out. I was quite pleased with the book. Jerry Parr has led an intriguing life. He tells of his childhood, marriage, and his profession before becoming a secret service agent. He tells of life serving as an agent with Presidents, Vice Presidents, as well as, other world leaders he had to protect. It was interesting to learn about these people. Especially, when Jerry tells about protecting President Ronald Reagan. President Reagan truly sounded like an extraordinary, unselfish, caring and giving man. Such an inspiration hearing of fight to survive from being shot. His will, faith, and attitude through it all was amazing. He even continued his humor throughout the ordeal.

    I was intrigued with Jerrys life after being a secret service agent. He and his wife, Carolyn, are uplifting, faithful, and admirable people. We could all learn so much from those two. Their messages are so powerful.

    I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was uplifting, interesting, and thought provoking. Great book!

    Highly recommended.

    5 stars.

    This is written in a comfortable style, as if Jerry Parr were in the room talking to you. I was impressed by how interesting it was. There was plenty of background about his many assignments, with technical and personal details to clarify the scenarios. From the first chapter, the buildup was as intriguing as expected. The most dramatic and tense assignment, as depicted on the cover, was well presented. I was also impressed by the diligence and professionalism these agents evidenced. The photos were a great bonus. I enjoyed the glimpses of each President's humor and personable nature. Jerry and Carolyn's faith walk, their love of God and charity to the poor, and their spiritual growth were inspiring.

    In the Secret Service by Jerry Parr with Carolyn Parr is about the secret service agent who saved President Reagan's life. Jerry Parr was the man who covered and pushed Reagan into the car and made the life saving decision to take the president to the hospital instead of the White House. It begins with a partial telling of the assassination attempt on Reagan and then moves to Parr's early life and eventual career in the secret service and beyond.

    I really enjoyed this book. I was immediately engaged and enthralled from the first page. Mr. Parr had an excellent gift for setting the scene and describing details that make the reader feel they are right in the midst of the action. His gift for storytelling made this book incredibly enjoying to read. I finished in two days! I couldn't put the book down. I wanted to know what happened. He takes you on a unique insider's view of several of our presidents and Vice Presidents during historical events in our nations history. I highly recommend this book. I really enjoyed reading it.
