DEA Special Agent: My Life on the Front Line
by Lew Rice
DEA Special Agent is one mans account of his experience as a special agent with the DEA. Lew Rice chronicles the history of drug trafficking, the evolution of the agency from its inception in 1973 to the present, the investigative strategies that the agency employs and the life of a special agent. Rice also tells stories about how undercover operations work and the influence one arrest has on the larger picture of drug enforcement.
This work is an inspirational story for all that explains how one man can make a difference to improve the quality of life around him, not for fame or glory, but because it is the right thing to do.
