Retired FBI Special Agent to Speak at Belle Isle Library

Have you ever wondered what life inside the FBI is like?  Now you can find out.

  Oklahoma author Robert Mulcahy is a retired FBI Special Agent and he will be speaking at the Belle Isle Library, 5501 N. Villa, on Saturday, September 22, from 2:00 to 3:00pm.  His talk is free, suitable for all ages, and open to the public.

Mulcahy was in charge of bank robbery investigation for over 20 years in Kansas City and Oklahoma.  His first book, “Targets of the FBI,” is a retelling of several of the cases he investigated during that time.  One reviewer said of the book, “Anyone with an interest in the FBI or law enforcement would enjoy this book.”

The author’s second book, “FBI Family,” goes back to the earliest days of the agency and retells some famous cases of everything from manhunts to murder, and Mulcahy’s most recent book, “Kansas City Charlie” is fiction about a professional burglar and his deal with the FBI. Although a novel, it too draws on the wealth of Mulcahy’s experience with the agency.

“I can’t imagine anyone not being fascinated by Agent Mulcahy’s life and books,” said librarian Ann Meeks. For more information about Robert Mulcahy’s visit to the Belle Isle Library, call 843-9601.
