About the book:

Hired by the IRS as its first -- and last -- official historian, Shelley Davis was afforded a rare glimpse into the nation's most feared government agency. What she saw, and what she writes, will outrage you.

Learn the shocking truth behind its closed doors:

  • A secret plot to destroy presidential tax returns
  • The real  story of the IRS and the Watergate Enemies List
  • Botched efforts to computerize and the resulting cover-up
  • Deliberate destruction of self-incriminating records
  • Use of taxpayer privacy laws by the IRS to protect itself from public scrutiny
  • Audits of political enemies

"Shelley's story speaks directly to that pervasive fear so many of us law-abiding Americans feel, deep in our guts, that our own government is, at best, hiding something from us, and at worst, working against those folks it exists to serve."
-- From the foreward by Mary Matalin
