Cynthia Beebe was one of the first women special agents for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). A smart and independent girl growing up in suburban Chicago, she unexpectedly became one of the first women to hunt down violent criminals for the federal government.
A special agent for 27 years, Beebe gained first-hand knowledge of the human capacity for evil. She overcame many obstacles on her journey through the treacherous world of illegal guns, gangs and bombs. She battled conflicts not only on the streets but also within ATF. Beebe learned how to thrive in the ultra-masculine world of violent crime and those whose job it is to stop it.
Her memoir Boots in the Ashes describes six major cases that read like crime fiction: four bombings, one arson fire and a massive roundup of the Hell's Angels on the West Coast. Plus riveting never before revealed trial testimonies, including killers, bombers, arsonists, victims, witnesses and judges.
