Synopsis: A highly decorated veteran DEA 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, undercover is the art of skillfully eliciting incriminating statements.  From a personal and psychological standpoint, it’s the dark art of gaining trust—then manipulating that trust. In the simplest terms, it’s playing a chess game with the bad guy, getting him to make the moves you want him to make—but without him knowing you’re doing so. 

Edward Follis mastered the chess game—The Dark Art—over the course of his distinguished twenty-seven years with the Drug Enforcement Administration, where he bought eightballs of coke in a red Corvette, negotiated multimillion-dollar deals onboard private King Airs, and developed covert relationships with men who were not only international drug-traffickers but—in some cases—operatives for Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, the Shan United Army, or the Mexican federation of cartels.

Follis was, in fact, one of the driving forces behind the agency’s radical shift from a limited local focus to a global arena. In the early nineties, the DEA was primarily known for doing street-level busts evocative of Miami Vice. Today, it uses high-resolution-optics surveillance and classified cutting-edge technology to put the worst narco-terror kingpins on the business end of "stealth justice" delivered via Predator drone pilots.

Spanning five continents and filled with harrowing stories about the world’s most ruthless drug lords and terrorist networks, Follis’s memoir reads like a thriller. Yet every word is true, and every story is documented. Follis earned a Medal of Valor for his work, and coauthor Douglas Century is a pro at shaping and telling just this kind of story. The first and only insider’s account of the confluence between narco-trafficking and terrorist organizations, The Dark Art is a page-turning memoir that will electrify you from page one.

About the Author: Since retiring from the DEA, Edward Follis spends much of the year traveling worldwide, offering his consulting expertise in the fields of global security, tactical intelligence, and risk-assessment.  He has been designated by the US District Courts as a certified expert in the subjects of narco-terrorism, international drug trafficking, and global terrorist networks. 

Douglas Century, a contributing editor at Tablet magazine, writes regularly for leading national publications. He is the author and coauthor of best-selling books, including Under and Alone, Brotherhood of Warriors, Barney Ross and Takedown:The Fall of the Last Mafia Empire. Century is working on a new nonfiction book.
