If ever there was an odd couple.A suburban mom and a coal miner's son.Bonnie Klapper is an attractive, funny, off-beat but tenacious federal prosecutor who constantly thinks out of the box, often to the chagrin of her superiors. She is a full-time Assistant US Attorney, and a full-time mom to two sons, one of whom is a special needs child. Now retired Special Agent Romedio "Rooney" Viola --- first of US Customs then of the Department of Homeland Security --- is a slightly built, larger-than-life eccentric from West Virginia whose reputation was based on his obsessive-compulsive pursuit of fugitives. They were brought together by happenstance while both assigned to the "El Dorado Task Force," operating out of the World Trade Center. A raid on three wire remitters in Queens, New York uncovered huge amounts of drug money being sent to three tiny villages in a Colombian valley that no one had ever heard of.Neither the Justice Department nor the Treasury Department seemed terribly concerned with where the money was going, as long as this flow of drug cash was stopped.Bonnie and Rooney wanted to know more.Working together out of her tiny office in the implausible outpost of Hauppauge, Long Island, they set off on a 13 year journey to dismantle --- systematically --- the Colombian cartel responsible for 60% of all the cocaine coming into the United States. Her superiors Justice and his superiors at what was then Immigration and Customs Enforcement were quick to write them both off as dreamers. Management believed there were enough drug dealers in the greater New York area to keep everyone busy for a long time. Taking down a barbarous gang of traffickers and murderers 2500 miles away, was pure fantasy.But Bonnie wasn't so sure.And Rooney didn't care what they thought.Veteran author Jeffrey Robinson, whose previous international bestsellers on international organized crime and dirty money include "The Laundrymen," "The Merger" and "The Sink" tells this story of true grit, guile, determination, fighting the system, beating the system and overcoming overwhelming odds with the pace of a great thriller.This is "The French Connection" for 2011!

In a world where fiction defines criminal investigations, this book sets the real record straight. It is the true story of two unlikely people that form a team and eventually bring down the brutal Norte Valle Cartel. For those in law enforcement you will see yourselves or colleagues, for those not in law enforcement you will have a fun and exciting time seeing how successful operations are actual done - by perseverance, a bit of luck and a lot of help. Congratulations to the author, the coal miner's son and a suburban mom on a great job.

I think this book is well written and interesting if you have read about the whereabouts and key figures of the Norte DEL Valle Cartel (there is no "Norte Valle" in Colombia by the way) because it assumes you know who they are. Its comments about Mexican and Colombian cities and society is very poorly sourced, untrue and biased indicating the author is somewhat ignorant and has never set foot in latin america, or at least not recently. Aside from that, its a good book, easy to read and with interesting point of views.

Great book that accurately details people pursuing transnational criminals.

I have read several of Robinson's books and I think this one is one of the best. It is well-researched, well-written, fascinating and, because of the characters, very funny. Why am I not surprised that two eccentric lone wolves could identify and take down an entire cartel before the rest of the government realized it existed! Not surprisingly, neither of the main characters gets much credit from their agencies, but the drug traffickers themselves give them the credit they deserve. The ending of the book is a real surpise. Enjoy reading, I sure did!

Interesting book and good overview of Colombia's Northern Valley Cartel; however, the author failed to do his research and the book is loaded with factually inaccurate events. The author had a great concept and almost got it right but with so many mistakes, it tends to question the entire book. This book should be classified as fiction.

Seems like the attorney and agent went easy on really bad people just because they gave some information. Also didn’t hear about any trials.
