Very interesting factual story about a police officer in the NYPD, who was "loaned" to the DEA and did many deals with the Colombian drug cartels. Fascinating factual accounts of the individual personalities and methodologies of the dealers and the CALI drug cartel.

From the start, the man New York City police commisioner Bernard Kerik called "a hurricane" was a different kind of cop. A former juvenile delinquent, Jerry Spezial was a loose cannon whose antics got him into the crack dens and shooting galleries of New York's meanest streets-and onto an elite DEA narcotics task force charged with taking down South America's powerful Cali drug cartel. Under the tutelage of a smooth-talking confidential informant, jeans-and-tee-shirt Jerry was transformed into Armani-clad Geraldo Bartone, the world's top drug trafficker. As Geraldo, he did things he never dreamed of-piloting planes, captaining cocaine-filled yachts, and meeting the most powerful kingpins in the brutal drug trade. One false move could take him out of the game for good. Yet within a few years, Jerry and the other officers of the task force became the most succesful drug unit in U.S. history. Riding a wave of glory and success, Jerry had no idea that he would be the one scammed next. This is his story.
