Summary

Summary

A New York Times bestseller

An urgent warning about the growing threat to our democracy from a twenty-year police veteran and former diehard Trump supporter who nearly lost his life during the insurrection of January 6th

When Michael Fanone self-deployed to the Capitol on January 6, 2021, he had no idea his life was about to change. When he got to the front of the line, he urged his fellow officers to hold it against the growing crowd of insurrectionists—until he found himself pulled into the mob, shocked with a taser until he had a heart attack, and viciously beaten with a Blue Lives Matter flag as shouts to kill him rang out.

Now, Fanone is ready to tell the full story of that fateful day, along with exploring our country’s most critical issues as someone who has had firsthand experience with many of them.

A self-described redneck who voted for Trump in 2016, Fanone’s closest friend was an informant—a Black, transgender, HIV-positive woman who has helped him mature and rethink his methods as a police officer. With his unique insight as an undercover detective and intense desire to do the right thing no matter the cost, Fanone provides a nuanced look into everything from policing to race to politics in a way that is accessible across all party lines.

Determined to make sure no one forgets what happened at the Capitol on January 6, Fanone has written a timely call to action for anyone who wants to preserve our democracy for future generations.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Dedicated, profane, and quick-witted, it’s clear Fanone strikes fear among the Republican legislators whom he protected that frightening day…Fanone’s closing thoughts on police reform will be of interest to activists everywhere. Justifiably angry and an important addition to the growing literature surrounding the chaotic last days of the Trump regime.” Kirkus Reviews
“I wish Hold the Line would be required reading for every American…His courage in battle on January 6th is matched only by his relentless commitment to tell this story from the inside…[with] straight-shooting clarity and knowledge. If bravery could be taught, Mike would be one helluva a professor.” Sean Penn, Academy Award-winning actor, author, and activist
