This Just In… Breaking Tecumseh’s Curse by Jan Marie and Bob Ritter

This 200,000-word memoir relates Jan Marie and Bob Ritter’s early years together when Bob was a special agent with the United States Secret Service in Washington, D.C.

“It’s the first Secret Service book told from a spouse’s perspective,” says author Jan Marie Ritter. Rich in emotion, Breaking Tecumseh’s Curse is the heartfelt love story of a young couple’s journey through some extraordinary times.

From 1840 to 1960, every United States president elected or reelected in a year ending in zero died in office. Of those seven presidents, four were assassinated. Breaking Tecumseh’s Curse unfolds the real-life adventures of the U.S. Secret Service agent who tried to change tomorrow.

Through enhanced protective methods and procedures, Secret Service Agent Bob Ritter hoped to prevent a similar fate for the president elected in 1980, Ronald Reagan. Some never before published information regarding the Reagan assassination attempt is revealed. Bob firmly believes that the attempt could have been prevented. There’s also an exciting, historical look at assassination and the Secret Service including a provocative profile of accused JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.

Breaking Tecumseh’s Curse spotlights 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. The book presents the historic events of the time and a rare insider’s look at the Secret Service.
