The Dark Art

A highly decorated veteran agent recounts his incredible undercover career, and reveals the shocking links between narcotics trafficking and terrorism. What exactly is `undercover'? From a law-enforcement perspective, it's the art of skillfully eliciting incriminating statements. Edward Follis mastered this dark art over the course of his distinguished 27 years with the US's Drug Enforcement Administration, where he bought bags of coke in a red Corvette, negotiated multi-million-dollar deals on board private jets, and developed covert relationships with men who were not only international drug-traffickers, but - in some cases - operatives for Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, and the Mexican federation of cartels. Spanning five continents and filled with harrowing stories about the world's most ruthless drug lords and terrorist networks, Follis's memoir reads like a thriller. Yet every word is true, and every story is documented. The first and only insider's account of the confluence between narco-trafficking and terrorist organisations, The Dark Art is an electrifying page-turner.

About the Author

Edward Follis worked as a senior agent for the DEA in the US, Mexico, the Middle East, and Asia. He performed undercover infiltrations, and in 2008 was responsible for the arrest of the head of the largest opium- and heroin-trafficking operation in the world. He is a certified expert on narcoterrorism, global heroin trafficking, Mexican cocaine cartels, and radical Islamic terrorist networks. He is also the author of the 2002 US Senate's Global Heroin Strategy. Douglas Century is the bestselling co-author of Under and Alone and Takedown: the fall of the last Mafia empire.


'Utterly compelling. I had to remind myself that Follis's story is fact, as the action, danger and situations he experienced read like those in any good thriller. Follis tells his story with as much reverence for the kingpins he targeted as he does for his own accomplishments. It was a confrontational read, but it also provided insight into the intricacies of the fight between good and evil and the link between terrorism and drug trafficking.' * Good Reading Magazine * 'All the old salty agents in the office couldn't help but notice Eddie when he arrived. He had the grit and resolve of a sheepdog, wasn't afraid of anything and we all wondered if that was going to get him killed someday ... The country owes him a great debt of gratitude. This book is a knockout.' -- William Queen, author of the New York Times bestselling Under and Alone 'I grilled Eddie for days. I wanted to understand what it's like to get to know someone so well that you're going to have to betray within months or years. How far do you have to go to fool everyone? Your life is at stake. The government's at stake. Everything is at stake.' -- John Travolta, star of Savages 'Ed Follis is the real deal.' -- Oliver Stone, Academy Award-winning director, producer and coauthor of the New York Times bestselling Untold History of the United States
