Synopsis

From the man 60 Minutes called "America's  top undercover cop"comes a gripping companion  to his bestselling expose, Deep Cover--a novel  inspired by real events.

Drawing from  the most dangerous real-life deep cover mission of  Michael Levine's illustrious career as a DEA  agent, Triangle of Death is as  fast-paced and explosive as his bestselling expose Deep  Cover.

While working on a top  secret assignment, Rene Villarino, Levine's only  friend and fellow agent, has disappeared. Rene's  mission was to find the source of La Reina Blanca, or  The White Queen, a deadly new form of cocaine  engineered as one of the most addictive and dangerous  drugs known to man.

Levine finds  his friend's tortured body in Argentina and  immediately suspects that the Triangle of Death, a huge  underground organization created by escaped Nazi  war criminals, is responsible for both Rene's death  and for the manufacture of The White Queen. Now  Levine, with the help of the Israeli Mossad, must  bring the Triangle of Death to its own timely  demise.
 

About Michael Levine

See more books from this Author
Michael Levine spent a total of 25 years working undercover for four federal agencies. As an agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration for 23 years, Levine would ultimately bring about the arrests of approximately 3,000 criminals, by posing as priests, Colombian and Puerto Rican drug merchants, and a mob leader. In this manner, he was able to corral millions of drug money dollars. As a Jew growing up in a Hispanic neighborhood in South Bronx, New York City, Levine grew up pretending to be Puerto Rican and speaking fluent Spanish. Despite a couple of pre-adulthood arrests, he joined the U.S. Air Force. Later came marriage and the earning of an accounting degree at Hofstra University, an education financed through tending bar and playing saxophone. After graduation, he moved to the U.S. Treasury Department; this was followed by a stint in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. Michael Levine survived impersonating drug dealers but he also faced the drug wars at home. He tried to get his brother David to kick the heroin habit by having him move into his home with Levine, his wife, and his family, but David would later commit suicide. Levine's daughter faced drug trouble as well. She was removed from the family through a court petition, but she later rejoined them. Michael Levine has chronicled life as a federal agent in such books as Deep Cover. He enjoys walks with his wife Laura Kavanu and dog in Ulster County, N.Y.
