Publisher's Summary

Robert Mazur spent five years undercover infiltrating the criminal hierarchy of Colombia's drug cartels. The dirty bankers and businessmen he befriended knew him as Bob Musella, a wealthy, mob-connected big shot living the good life.

Together they partied in expensive hotels, drank the world's finest champagnes, drove Rolls-Royce convertibles and flew in private jets. But under Mazur's designer suits and hidden away in his quality briefcase, recorders whirred quietly, capturing the damning evidence of their crimes. Then, at his own staged wedding, he led a dramatic takedown that shook the underworld. In the end more than 80 men and women were charged worldwide.

Operation C-Chase became one of the most successful undercover operations in the history of US law enforcement, and evidence gathered during the bust proved critical to the conviction of General Manuel Noriega. The Infiltrator is the true story of how Mazur's undercover work helped bring down the unscrupulous bankers who manipulated complex international finance systems to serve drug lords - including Pablo Escobar and the infamous Medillin cartel - corrupt politicians, tax cheats and terrorists.

It is a shocking chronicle of the rise and fall of perhaps the biggest and most intricate money-laundering operation of all time. And, at its heart, it's a vivid portrait of an undercover life and the sacrifices it requires. Filled with dangerous lies, near misses and harrowing escapes, The Infiltrator is as bracing and explosive as the greatest fiction thrillers - only it's all true.

Very good insight to money laundering

This book provided a awsome insight to the drug trade and money laundering. A great story read by the author it tells of the exciting but dangerous life of a under cover agent.

Interesting read

Was interesting life story. I found myself shaking my head at what is happening in real life out there in the drug and particularly the banking and political world. The audacity of the drug lords and financial world and their ability to justify what they do for the devastation they allow to happen for the betterment of themselves is unbelievable. Everyone should know and understand what goes on as I truely did not appreciate the evilness of what they did, got away with and are still doing today. Very interesting how they got infiltrated, also sad about the level of greed and narcissism in high levels of law enforcement and banking world that permits such devastation to society for personal gain. Valuable understanding for me...

An amazing operation by US authorities.

I enjoyed the story. It could have been improved by editing some of the money laundering encounters with BCCI. It got a bit bogged down at times. The narration was disappointing but overall I rate the book highly.

Fascinating story.

I found this book and decent listen. There are quite a few characters involved, and I did find that sometimes I'd lose track of who was who. But in the end, it all comes together, even if some of the details went over my head.
