Breaking Tecumseh's Curse: The Real-life Adventures of the U.S. Secret Service Agent Who Tried to Change Tomorrow by Jan and Bob Ritter

Breaking Tecumseh's Curse: The Real-life Adventures of the U.S. Secret Service Agent Who Tried to Change Tomorrow by Jan and Bob Ritter (2013)



"Dear Mr. Palamara:






We wanted to let you know of our recently published nonfiction book: Breaking Tecumseh's Curse. It's now available on Amazon.com for purchase and as a preview. Written by Jan and Bob Ritter, it relates to their early years together when Bob was a Secret Service agent in Washington, D.C. It highlights a dangerous period for the Secret Service--from 1972-1982. During that time, five assassination attempts took place against persons protected by the USSS, more than any other era. Four of the five attempts were directed against presidents, the other against a presidential candidate. Two of the attempts were partially successful in that protectees were wounded.



During much of this dangerous epoch, Bob was directly involved in the protective mission of the Secret Service, especially protective intelligence. From 1840-1960, every U.S. president elected or reelected in a year ending in zero has died in office, four by assassination. Supposedly predestined by Tecumseh's Curse, the president elected in 1980, Ronald Reagan, would be the next to face Tecumseh's wrath. The work features the historic events of the time and an exciting, insider's look at the Secret Service. The little-known field of protective intelligence is spotlighted as well as the history of presidential assassination. Some never before published information regarding the Reagan assassination attempt is revealed as well as a provocative profile of accused JFK presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. Told from a spouse's perspective, the book unfolds the heartfelt love story of a young couple who journeyed through some extraordinary times.



With hope for preventing future tragedies, some successful strategies for predicting dangerousness in individuals are also explored. Bob's mantra of "desperate people are dangerous people" and other techniques developed by him jump off the page at a time when mass murders are all too often in the news. We can change our tomorrows. We invite you to come along in our journey. As a member of the Secret Service family, we know you will enjoy it.
