Former United States Secret Service Agent Pulls Back the Veil of Secrecy with Release of New Book

Agent openly reveals Post-Traumatic Stress after 9/11

Dallas, Texas: The Silent Fall: A Secret Service Agent’s Story of Tragedy and Triumph After 9/11, is a bold revelation of the silent suffering that Samantha (Sam) Horwitz, an agent in the New York Field Office, experienced after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Sam takes the reader back to the World Trade Center complex on 9/11 and walks them through her day step by step. From the moment she left her apartment, to being in the elevator in 1 WTC when American Airlines flight 11 struck it, Sam shares the silent struggle that almost killed her, and her climb back to the top of her game.

“Post-traumatic stress, battle fatigue, shell shock, no matter what you call it, it links generations of those of us who have suffered. The trauma may have been different, but our symptoms are the same. It’s what unites us in our quest for recovery,” Sam says.

Sam is available for interviews in which she engages the audience openly, energetically, and vulnerably. She has been a keynote speaker for a variety of groups, including The National Charity League, to law enforcement organizations, and business organizations.


“The thing you’ll always get from Sam is an open, honest, and thought provoking dialogue. She makes you want to be a better person,” says Dr. Diana Brown, MHSM, DM, A Renewed Mind Ministries, Mesquite, Texas.
