This book is like sitting down with someone from the neighborhood over a beer Garcia speaks casually as if he's spewing his tales from the top of his head It's a sort of a day in the life of an undercover agent who happens to be working undercover cases at once than any agent in history You get his colorful perceptions of all the dubious characters involved in the criminal enterprises he's slated to take down from corrupt cops politicians to drug pushers mobsters The majority of the book focuses on Garcia's most famed case that involved 2 12 years infiltrating the mafia to put away 32 members of 3 crime families Garcia becomes a sort of right hand man to Greg DePalma a slimy older made member of the Gambino family who entrusts Garcia who is known to mafia members as Jack Falcone to the point of wanting to have him made DePalma is as mafia as they come an easy to hate cliche of a tough guy with close to zero moralsAll through his telling of the seedy world of the shysters he deals with on a day to day basis you get to know the most colorful character Garcia himself As a gregarious 375 lb Cuban American he simply doesn't fit the mold of an FBI agent clearly an advantage in the undercover game he's playing The mafia born to eat lifestyle doesn't help the poor guy who at one point reaches 450 lbs Like many working as part of a large bureaucratic organization Garcia struggles with red tape budget issues and what he feels are illogical decisions of management In one part of the book he's complaining that his higher up is demanding he lose weight dodging his weigh ins while later on he's complaining that the FBI didn't force him to go to much needed health screenings due to budget cuts Additionally he's 100 percent pissed off that bureau cut his mafia sting short because he really really wanted to have a story to tell about getting made While I see some of Garcia's complaints about FBI management as legitimate especially one where he explains how the FBI failed to inform him that there was a 250K hit out on him I start to feel by the end of the book that Garcia is simply a winger I was really disappointed that he exited the FBI in order to leave at the top of his career rather than having to do the sludge work of a regular agent I was hoping the book would end with Garcia wanting to change FBI management perhaps bringing all of his knowledge and experience to transform the bureau Instead he pretty much explains that he had a taste of the good life undercover and now would like to become an actor Despite feeling a little disappointed with the Garcia in the end the book is entertaining and worth reading I think the best part for me was that I could get a sense of the adventures Garcia experienced in the underworld without having to trudge through the gore as Garcia was legally forbidden from being around when someone was being injured or killed

Making Jack Falcone An Undercover FBI Agent Takes Down a Mafia FamilyRs and even killers Jack became one of the few FBI agents dedicated solely to undercover workUsing a series of carefully created aliases Jack insinuated himself in the criminal world from the Badlands of Philadelphia where he was a gregarious money launderer to the streets of Miami where an undercover Garcia moved stolen and illicit goods and brought down dirty cops Jack jumped at the opportunity to infiltrate the shadowy world of La Cosa Nostra but how would the Cuban American convince wiseguys that he was one of their own a Sicilian capable of earning his button getting made in the Mafia For the first time the FBI created a special mob school for Jack teaching. The true story of how FBI agent Jack Garcia infiltrated a Gambino crew as Jack Falcone and befriended capo Greg DePalma the book also includes recolections of some other operations in his undercover careerThe story is interesting and has good details while I would say it's far from being masterfully written the fact that it's a true story than makes up for that shortcoming
