Product description


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

“Michael McGowan and Ralph Pezzullo’s brilliant and unflinching account of Mr. McGowan’s career as an undercover FBI Special Agent takes you into the soul of this unsung American hero, and into the strip clubs, and hotel suites where he outwitted the world’s top criminals―including three Italian Mafia families, the Russian Mob, and El Chapo Guzman and the Sinaloa Cartel. Ghost is absolutely riveting. I couldn’t put it down.” ―Don Mann, longtime member of SEAL Team 6 and New York Times bestselling author.

"An excellent look into the murky world of Undercover. McGowan proves to be one of the top UCAs in the FBI. A must read." ―Joseph Pistone, aka Donnie Brasco

"Few Agents in the history of the FBI have exposed themselves to more risk and performed with equal professionalism and integrity as Mike McGowan. His story shows the FBI's success isn't based on a system but the extraordinary efforts of individual Agents who find a way to make their cases despite all obstacles. Sometimes, as Mike discovered, the bad guys you are targeting aren't your only adversary.” ―Michael German, retired FBI agent and author of Thinking Like a Terrorist: Insights of a Former FBI UCA
