Abstract:

"Alex Caine started life as just another mixed-up kid in rough-and-tumble Hull, Quebec. But after a tour in Vietnam and a stretch in prison on marijuana possession charges, he fell into the cloak-and-dagger world of a contracted agent, infiltrating criminal groups that cops across North America and around the globe were unable to penetrate themselves. Thanks to his quick-wittedness and his tough but unthreatening demeanour, Caine could fit into whatever unsavoury situation he found himself. His assignments ran the gamut from Bandidos and Hells Angels to Triad toughs, Russian mobsters and the KKK. When a job was over, he'd slip away and cozy up to another group of bad guys, assume a new identity and start collecting evidence for another major takedown. Told from the frontlines of law enforcement's war with organized crime, Befriend and Betray offers an unvarnished account of this never-ending conflict that rages all around us, and the terrible toll it takes on the lives of those who serve its cause."--BOOK JACKET.
