GHOST: My Thirty Years as an FBI Undercover Agent

“Propulsive….Will appeal to readers curious about the undercover lifestyle and the inner workings of federal law enforcement.” Kirkus Reviews

In this extraordinary and unprecedented book, McGowan takes readers through some of his biggest cases, from international drug busts, to the Russian and Italian mobs, 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, makes the busts, and carries 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.
