The success of the Academy Award-nominated film American Gangsterensured that the public knew about Frank Lucas's criminal reign over New York City, but Lucas himself admitted that the real kingpin was "Mr. Untouchable"--Leroy "Nicky" Barnes. Operating on the assumption that Barnes would never imagine that the U.S. government could authorize something so stupid as sending an undercover agent into his domain, Louis Diaz did just that. In Dancing With the Devil, the federal undercover agent who took down Nicky Barnes gives his account of his infiltrating the organization of the most dangerous drug czar in American history. Written in Diaz's colorful voice, Dancing With the Devilalso offers the inside story of many of his front-page cases--from his infiltration of the Medellin cartel, to outfoxing the masterminds behind the Great English Train Robbery, to flim-flamming the most murderous terrorist groups in the nation, to leading commando raids on clandestine cocaine labs in the Bolivian jungles. Dancing With the Devilis ultimately the saga of a man who rose from the mean streets to a dazzling career in law enforcement.
