That said, this book is an unorganized, grabasstic mess. It seems to be organized chronologically at points, but then takes a backward turn to explain the context of the point, but then takes a sideways turn to add another undercover job he was working, then compares that to a different undercover job, and so forth.
All very great stories, but it took him a couple of chapters to get back to the original point.
True, SA Garcia spent his entire career being undercover, and running so many cases at one time, so if the unorganized format was to illustrate what he was going through, then he certainly achieved that point.
But it detracts from the story of an incredible undercover agent, who achieved things that "Donnie Brascoe" Pistone could only dream about.
And to add to the disappointment of the book - but not the story - when the FBI bureaucrats pulled the plug, they made the arrests and took the bad guys down, it just kinda lands in your lap.
The end of the book is not even "anti-climactic" because that implies a climax.
Like I said, this is a great story. Just not told very well
A worthwhile read.
