the FBI "ghost" that brought down 

America's most notorious spy:

ERIC O'NEILL

O’Neill is an author, attorney, security consultant and professional public speaker. 

 

In 2001, Eric helped capture the most notorious spy in United States history: Robert Hanssen, a 25-year veteran of the FBI. The remarkable true events of his life are the inspiration behind the critically acclaimed dramatic thriller Breach, starring Ryan Philippe as O'Neill. The film is the story of the greatest security breach in US history.
