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, its the art of skillfully eliciting incriminating statements. Edward Follis mastered this dark art over the course of his distinguished 27 years with the USs 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 worlds most ruthless drug lords and terrorist networks, Folliss memoir reads like a thriller. Yet every word is true, and every story is documented. The first and only insiders account of the confluence between narco-trafficking and terrorist organisations, The Dark Art is an electrifying page-turner.

'Ed Follis is the real deal.' -- Oliver Stone, Academy Awardwinning director, producer and coauthor of the New York Times bestselling Untold History of the United States 'I grilled Eddie for days. I wanted to understand what its like to get to know someone so well that youre 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 governments at stake. Everything is at stake.' -- John Travolta, star of Savages 'All the old salty agents in the office couldnt help but notice Eddie when he arrived. He had the grit and resolve of a sheepdog, wasnt 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 '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 *
