Administration. Having worked some of the biggest drug cases and undercover intelligence operations of our time, he now tells what really happened inside: the French Connection, JFK's secret anti-Castro army, the Pizza Connection; the CIA's secret training of Tibetan guerrillas, the overblown Joe Valachi hearings, corruption in government; the CIA's secret sting on Senator Barry Goldwater, J. Edgar Hoover's overrated, headline-hunting FBI, the hunt for Che Guevara, and.
the Nosenko KGB spy case. Ever since his career's dangerous and exciting start on the streets of Harlem, Tom Tripodi has fought the drug war with a .38 caliber Colt automatic and a deeply ingrained sense of justice. He has kicked down the doors of drug dens, learned how the Mafia really operates, tossed dozens of drug lords into jail, and earned the ultimate professional honor - a Mafia death sentence. This is his astonishing autobiography, filled with real-life "Miami.
Vice" thrills and CIA covert action. It's the story of one courageous man's remarkable personal crusade against the enemies of the American people.
