Attention to detail is the hallmark of Daniel Hopsicker's Barry Seal story. The author leaves no stone unturned in an obviously relentless search for the truth of CIA agent Barry Seal, reputedly the biggest drug smuggler in American history. If you've read anything at all about 'made guys', organized crime, or our government's intelligence agencies, you will find fascinating the presentation of a largely familiar list of characters--including presidents--and the way in which they use one another to achieve ominous ends, including the assassination of the books central character. On the other hand, even if you've read nothing about organized crime or the CIA, you will come away from this book with a new understanding of our country's involvements in Central and South America, Vietnam, and a long list of clandestine topics that have been the substance of leading news stories like Watergate since the 1950's.
