The Strength of the Pack: The People, Politics and Espionage Intrigues that Shaped the DEA

Through interviews with former narcotics agents, politicians, and bureaucrats, this exposé documents previously unknown aspects of the history of federal drug law enforcement from the formation of the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs and the creation of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) up until the present day. Written in an easily accessible style, the narrative examines how successive administrations expanded federal drug law enforcement operations at home and abroad; investigates how the Central Intelligence Agency comprised the war on drugs; analyzes the Regan, Bush, and Clinton administrations’ failed attempts to alter the DEA’s course; and traces the agency’s evolution into its final and current stage of “narco-terrorism.”

is a former private investigator and consultant and the author of The Hotel Tacloban, The Phoenix Program, The Strength of the Wolf, and TDY. He lives in Longmeadow, Massachusetts.
