A Paraguayan drug lord teams up with a sect of long-lost Nazis to produce a drug called White Queen, which can radically alter the sexual abilities of humans before it kills them. Chasing White Queen through the Mediterranean, South America, and the United States is a Drug Enforcement Agency undercover operative--based largely on Michael Levine himself, who is a former DEA agent--posing as an Algerian businessman. Husband-and-wife team Michael Levine and Laura Kavanau, draw on Levine's experience to ground the story while its characters rush off in a whirl of international intrigue and science-gone-bad. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
From Publishers Weekly
Drawing on cases he worked during his 25 years as a DEA agent, Levine reunites with Kavanau (coauthor of Levine's bestselling memoir Deep Cover, 1990) to tell a tale of anti-drug derring-do that's as mean and rapid-fire as a dope dealer's Uzi. In the manner of Richard Marcinko, Levine casts himself as the narrator/agent who goes undercover to tangle with a South American drug cartel with Nazi connections and the Middle-Eastern oilmen who plan to exchange black gold for white powder. The stakes are vengeance for the slaughter of one of Levine's colleagues, and the multibillion-dollar market promised by a new form of cocaine, the White Queen, which prolongs sexual ecstasy. Levine's characterizations are believable, if not deep, and he makes an appealing hero as a man searching for justice in a world that no longer recognizes the concept. The action is exceptionally furious, and brutal, told in pulp style. What gives this thriller its edge, though, is Levine's world-class knowledge of the drug business and of its lawful, too often squabbling, enemies. Author tour.

One thing fans might not enjoy is that while 'Deep Cover' was based in truth, this is a work of fiction. That being said it was written in the same style that made his earlier works such a great read and while the events in it aren't real you could easily see that they could exist in the world run by drugs in his previous novels.
His work as an undercover agent shines through and the gritty realism to his writing shines through in such a way that while this is fiction you have to wonder if any of the events within were loosely based on real life experiences.
Either way it is just as riveting as his initial work and you won't be sorry in the slightest for cracking this open. I'd suggest his first books just to have an established idea of the character but I can't say that they are needed to sit down and enjoy this one.
Book: spelling errors, mismatched paragraphs, mismatched quotes and breaks - shows little effort was made to proofread the text professionally, and made it a little hard to read. Looks like the publisher relied on software and didn't bother with a skilled human proofreader.
I think it's well written and enjoyable to read.
