Making Jack Falcone tells the incredible true story of Garcia's audacious attempt to become only the second agent (after "Donnie Brasco") to become a made man in the Mafia. Readers will join Garcia as he attends "Mob School," an intensive course of study designed to teach him everything he needs to know about the Mafia, its operations, and its attitudes. An unprecedented glimpse into the inner workings of the FBI, the book also pulls no punches as Garcia reveals how sometimes the agency ran smoothly and criminals were collared according to plan, while other times tempers flared over the progess of cases.
A fascinating inside look at the struggle between law enforcement and organized crime, Making Jack Falcone sheds new light on two organizational cultures that continue to exert an unparalleled grip on the American popular imagination.

If you like the underworld and many of us do, then this book is for you. Having worked for the federal government and negotiated it's many bureaucratic levels I can side with Joaquin "Jack" Garcia,and his frustrations with the F.B.I. but thank God there are agents like him on the job. We are being attacked from so many sides in this country it is good to know we can all sleep at night knowing their work helps keep us all safe and out of harms way. This book is a must read or hear in this case. Thank you Joaquin "Jack" Garcia, Michael Levin for writing it. I loved it. Frank Slater

This book sounds like it could be fiction easily. Awsome story. It left me feeling a little frustrated with the politics and paper pushers at the FBI though. You have to give alot of credit to agents like Joaquin Garcia. It takes incredible talent and guts to do what he did. It would've been nice to have seen him get to finish the case and retire feeling satisfied with the results of all his hard work.
