Publisher's Summary

The explosive memoir of an FBI field operative who has worked more undercover cases than anyone in history

Within FBI field operative circles, groups of people known as “Special” by their titles alone, Michael R. McGowan is an outlier. Ten percent of FBI Special Agents are trained and certified to work undercover. A quarter of those agents have worked more than one undercover assignment in their careers. And of those, less than 10 percent of them have been involved in more than five undercover cases. Over the course of his career, McGowan has worked more than 50 undercover cases. 

In this extraordinary and unprecedented book, McGowan will take listeners through some of his biggest cases, from international drug busts to the Russian and Italian mobs to biker gangs and contract killers to corrupt unions and SWAT work. Ghost is an unparalleled view into how the FBI, through the courage of its undercover Special Agents, nails the bad guys. McGowan infiltrates groups at home and abroad, assembles teams to create the myths he lives, concocts fake businesses, coordinates the busts, and helps carry out the arrests. Along the way, we meet his partners and colleagues at the FBI, who pull together for everything from bank jobs to the Boston Marathon bombing case, mafia dons, and, perhaps, most significantly, El Chapo himself and his Sinaloa Cartel.

Ghost is the ultimate insider's account of one of the most iconic institutions of American government, and a testament to the incredible work of the FBI.

Interesting story, but narration eh

Good book if your interested in FBI undercover work, or investigations in general. The detail about the cases is very fascinating. Some of the writing could have been better but it wasn’t bad. You just hear “you can’t make this shit up” a few times to many. But the narration was hard for me to get past at times. I think if I was reading the book as opposed to listening to it I wouldn’t have imagined the voice to be the way it was narrated. I almost didn’t buy it because of the narration on the sample. But I’m glad I did. Book was interesting overall and it’s a quick listen.

Ego Maniac

Yet another storyteller trusting to earn a buck. Don’t spend the money.many others have done the same but true professionals are far less boastful.
