A crime novel of intrigue, deceit and treachery. This true story follows the twenty five year career of a Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent from rookie on the streets of New York City to senior manager of DEA=s money laundering undercover operations on three continents. His story parallels his professional life with the growth of cocaine use in the United States and the proliferation of its trade into a multi-billion international industry. Whether it be the Mafia, La Costra Nostra, the Colombian Cartels, Mexican Syndicates or the Russian Mob, Tom Clifford=s undercover shell corporations and financial storefront businesses penetrated into the inner financial world of the Drug Kingpins. By establishing undercover store fronts in different cities in the United States, Canada and Europe, the undercover operations were the largest enterprises established by the United States government to counteract the money laundering activities of organized crime. Clifford proves that the globalization of crime is here and the cooperation between different national crime organizations forebodes a dark vision for our social, economic and political systems. The book contains lessons and strategies from the failed War on Drugs that need to be modernized for our present War on Terror.
