Editorial Reviews

Review

"Drawing on 30 years of experience in law enforcement, Gregory Lee has written a definitive work on criminal drug investigations. Documentation is airtight. Citation to other works is solid as well. This well-presented book would be an ideal text for students, aspiring investigators, and trainees." - Security Management Magazine "Greg Lee has produced the textbook on drug enforcement operations. The book's style is easy to read, and the author's real world experience should put it on the top shelf in every narcotics unit's library. I strongly recommend this book to anyone involved in the field of narcotics enforcement, be they agent, detective, or supervisor." - Gary Edgington, Special Agent Supervisor, California Department of Justice, and Former CA Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement Agent "This book is groundbreaking and brings to both the law enforcement officer and the student a single-source text that deals with this topic in the most complete fashion we've seen to date." - Stanley L. Sniff, Jr., Chief Deputy, Riverside County (CA) Sheriff's Department; Commander of Western Riverside County Field Operations "Universal in scope, straight-forward in approach, written in terms easily comprehended by both novices and those experienced in police work, domestic or foreign; this text is a credible and valuable primer for introduction to this specialized area of crime and enforcement." - Mary A. Turner, Chief, International Training, Drug Enforcement Administration (Ret)

While in Pakistan between 1994 and 1998, Mr. Lee became personally involved in several notable terrorism investigations. He participated in the arrest of Ramzi Ahmed Yousef, the mastermind behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombings who was thought by many to be the architect of the attacks of September 11, 2001. He also later testified at Yousef's trial and was cross-examined by Yousef, who elected to represent himself. Through informants, he also assisted the FBI in locating Amil Kanzi, the terrorist responsible for the murder of two CIA employees outside CIA headquarters in 1993. As a result of his terrorism investigation experiences in Pakistan, he has lectured for and consulted with various agencies within the U.S. intelligence community. He also appeared on an episode of the Discovery Channel's "The FBI Files" that included information about his actions during the Kanzi investigation.

Mr. Lee taught conspiracy investigations, drug smuggling, informant management, and many other courses as an instructor at the DEAs Office of Training, located at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia. He developed and taught weeklong conspiracy-investigation seminars for federal, state, and local law enforcement officers and intelligence community analysts around the country.

Mr. Lee also served as a counselor for the 160th session of the FBI National Academy in 1990.

Prior to working for DEA, he was a police officer for the cities of Saunas and Pasadena in California.

Mr. Lee has a combination of more than 32 years of active duty and U.S. Army Reserve service, and he is a chief warrant officer 5/special agent with the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, better known as CID. As an Army reservist, he is an associate instructor with the U.S. Army Military Police School and is a subject matter expert in counter-drug operations and terrorism.

Shortly after the attacks of September 11, 2001, he was called to active duty and served one year at the U.S. Army Operations Center's Anti-Terrorism Operations and Intelligence Cell at the Pentagon, where he routinely analyzed highly classified intelligence data and briefed the Army's top leadership on terrorism and force-protection issues.

Mr. Lee earned a master of public administration in justice administration degree from Golden Gate University, San Francisco, and a bachelor's of science degree in sociology with dual minors in vocational education and criminology from the University of Maryland. While attendinggraduate school, he taught a criminal investigation course for Monterey Peninsula College, Monterey, California.

Good book, lots of information I just don't believe it should be available to non-law enforcement personnel. I couldn't help thinking that in the wrong hands some of this informantion can put officers in danger!

Gregory D. Lee may have had a distinguished career with the DEA, and this book may be well written but I can't help but notice that Mr. Lee discusses tactics and procedures that ultimately assist in training criminals to outmanuever the very law enforcement officers who are still on the job attempting to make an impact on the war on drugs. Why is he publishing operational information that can benefit the drug cartels?? Its about selling books, and making profits, not protecting tactics that law enforcement officers still use. Shame on you Greg :(
