Publisher's Summary

Federal Agent Robert Mazur spent five years undercover as a money launderer to the international underworld, gaining access to the zenith of a criminal hierarchy safeguarded by a circle of dirty bankers and businessmen who quietly shape power across the globe. These men and women control multibillion-dollar drug-trafficking empires, running their organizations like public companies. Accountants, attorneys, and financial advisors, their roots run deep in their communities, and they are laundering billions of dollars a year, manipulating complex international finance systems to serve drug lords, corrupt politicians, tax cheats, and terrorists.
In 1987 Mazur began infiltrating BCCI, the bankers behind the Medellín cartel. He meticulously gathered evidence for years until, during a fake wedding, federal agents arrested over 40 high-ranking criminals, who were all found guilty and sent to prison. Never before told, this is the incredible true story of how he did it.

Play by Play

I watched the movie about a month ago and was really impressed with Bryan Cranston's acting in "The Infiltrator" as the undercover agent, Robert Mazur. Listening to Mazur as an true undercover agent on what went down Medellín cartel and the banks is even better than the movie. The movie is a must watch for anyone who watched the first two seasons of Narcos on Netflix. They go hand and hand, but there was a reason why I wanted to read this book because of the play by play.

Agent Robert Mazur recounts everything on what went on being undercover for five years and being away from his family. Before they roll the credits and after the last scene ends, you get to read what happens, like an epilogue with the main characters in the movie. Well, after they bust the cartel in Mazur's fake wedding, there is a lot more in the book. Like his name tag in the trial.

Great story, great performance

There almost wasn't enough in this book. The stories here are amazing and unbelievable, if you don't know how federal law enforcement works. Highly, highly suggested!
