From the bestselling author who inspired Bryan Cranston's The Infiltrator.

Three years after undercover agent Robert Mazur infiltrated Pablo Escobar's Medellin drug cartel, he re-emerged, a half-million-dollar bounty still on his head, with a new identity for a risky new sting.

Deployed to Panama, he worked, travelled, partied and washed millions with Central America's criminal elite. Partnered with a DEA task force agent, Mazur slipped effortlessly into Colombia's notorious Cali drug cartel. But as his underworld reputation skyrocketed, the operation started going dangerously off the rails.

Robert Mazur's riveting true story exposes the corruption at the heart of one of the most explosive undercover missions of his career.

Refusing to acknowledge the danger, Mazur was obsessed with seeing the mission through to its treacherous end: expose the Cali cartel, find out who betrayed him, and escape with his life. This is his true story.
