The President's Private Eye is a passage into history, a unique episodic memoir that tells about the desire of a Polish kid from New York's Lower East Side who wanted to become a cop and where that career took him--to the position of being the only private detective ever hired to work for a President of the United States. And now, along with never-before-seen documents, including key memos from the Nixon White House, Tony Ulasewicz tells his story.

Ulasewicz achieved fame of a sort during the Watergate scandal, after a virtual lifetime of public service as a cop. Writing with freelancer McKeever, he here fills us in on his background. Ulasewicz spent time as a beat patrolman in Harlem, then, promoted to detective, worked for almost 20 years for the New York Police Department's Bureau of Special Services and Investigations. BOSSI's job was to investigate subversion, to infiltrate radical groups and to guard world leaders when they visited Manhattan, especially in connection with U.N. sessions. Among his cases were the disappearance of an anti-Trujillo Dominican leader, the rise of neo-Nazi George Lincoln Rockwell and a plot to blow up the Statue of Liberty. With Nixon's election to the presidency in 1968, he became a private investigator for the chief executive, who, he notes, did not trust the CIA, FBI and other intelligence-gathering apparatuses. Ulasewicz, who funneled money to the Watergate break-in defendants, provides an insider's view of the bizarre, paranoid Nixon White House in a book that is certain to be of value to historians.
