Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This hair-raising memoir by a former undercover DEA agent points out the U.S. government's failure to uphold anti-drug laws.
Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Booklist

Reading more like a novel than serious nonfiction, The Big White Lie tells a former Drug Enforcement Administration undercover agent's story of dealing with cocaine traffickers in both the U.S. and South America. Levine, who has written two previous books on similar subjects, admits to considerable disenchantment with the "suits" running the DEA and to family involvement with drugs (a couple of fatal addictions), a combination that could hamper his objectivity. He was, nevertheless, involved with some major drug operations in which one U.S. government agency (the DEA) was trying to ensnare drug dealers while another (the CIA) was using the same people as sources: a delicate game that Levine found not only offensive, but also unplayable. While often a good read with numerous unsavory but believable characters and rich reconstructed dialogue, the book seems more a kvetch than a well-documented expos{‚}e; an introduction or some endorsements from objective experts would enhance its authoritativeness. Connie Goddard
