The Fast Life and Violent Death of Barry Seal

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Barry Seal was one of the most successful drug smugglers of the go-fast, "Miami Vice"-era 1980s. He was also the DEA's most important undercover operative. Seal infiltrated Pablo Escobar's ultra-violent Medellin Cartel and eventually paid the ultimate price when his cover was blow by a high-ranking member of President Ronald Reagan's National Security Council.

But Barry Seal had a secret life hidden within his secret life.

In this 8,000-word narrative nonfiction feature, award-winning journalist, author, screenwriter, and former federal agent Chuck Hustmyre examines the evidence that Barry Seal may have been a U.S. intelligence asset going all the way back to the 1960s and may even have worked for the U.S. government while he was smuggling tons of cocaine into the United States.
