If you, read a "true crime" book only now and again -- buy this book. If you read "true crime" regularly this will be one of your all-time favorites.
It appeared to me that in his recounting of the "facts", few others existed in other than a passing manner and in some cases, not at all. One noteable example of his failure to credit others involved is when he states that he lead the Vancouver, BC, Canada, DEA agents on the raid outside of Vancouver. Not without the involvement of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police he didn't.
If there was arresting to be done, Jerry didn't do it as the DEA does not have jurisdiction in British Columbia, nor anywhere else in Canada for that matter. Getting a warrent or a phone tap is a tougher job in Canada than in the USA and Jerry would not even be able to approach the courts to obtain one, let alone serve it or put a tap in place.
Good info, lots of credit to Jerry for his efforts, but way too much "me" and "I".
Speziale puts his life on the line to pursue Columbian drug cartels away from his family for extended lengths of time. This story puts you there with him, that's why it's so captivating and even frightening at times. I'm glad that he wrote this book because so many times the general public doesn't understand the sacrifices and heroism that members of law enforcement make to fight crime.
If you enjoy true crime, this book will definitely be one of your favorites.
-Jennifer Chase, author of thriller "Compulsion"
