Publisher's Summary

A riveting, heartbreaking account of a football star turned soldier, an entrepreneur turned DEA agent, and the internet trap that changed both of their lives.

After Kevin Corley’s military career came to an ill-fated end, he answered another call of duty, unaware that he was walking into a ruse orchestrated by one of the government’s most enterprising agents. John Leonard was posing online as an underworld figure to entrap those who were predisposed to crime. When he lured Lieutenant Corley into his scheme, he didn’t know how wrong it would go. And Corley had no idea he had so much left to lose.

Dan Slater’s The Officer and the Entrepreneur is part of Exposure, a collection of six incredible and true stories of American double lives from millionaire CEOs and suburban teens to undercover investigators and scam artists - all for whom secrets are a way of life. Each piece can be read or listened to in a single astonished sitting.

A Sad & Tragic Affair

This was a sad true case of a military vet, court martialed for adultery (a rare single charge) that was entrapped by an ambitious SEA agent and like most, now behind bars. The fact that his cousin was killed accidentally during the takedown was also sad. Most of the people nailed were vets without proper PTSD treatment, at a critical time of life, several not able to adjust to life back home. Some unwilling, others unable to find honest work, they look to make a fast buck, which doesn't turn out well. Both the vet and the agent has outside factors that influenced their lives. It was still a sad ending, where all of the time and effort spent entrapping them could've been better spent on real criminals. I read this book using immersion reading while listening to the audio book. Neil Shah handled the touching narration perfectly.

very entertaining and very insightful

I like the way the story created the characters and Drew in visionary imaginary inside into the under dealings of not only War but the FBI in dealing with drugs and cartel and weapons the story brought the perspective not only from the FBI as much as it did from the criminals themselves

started good but dragged out too much

I hated the narrator's voice, first of all. too breathy and dramatic like he was reading Shakespeare. I got used to it because I liked the story, but it dragged out so much, in excruciating detail, I gave up and googled the outcome.

Very thought provoking

It was a very interesting story and very thought provoking in the sense of Practices used by law enforcement. Kudos to the author for the detailed research into the background of laws that impact this case.
