    Description

    The explosive memoir of an FBI field operative who has worked more undercover cases than anyone in history

    Within FBI field operative circles, groups of people known as “Special” by their titles alone, Michael R. McGowan is an outlier. Ten percent of FBI Special Agents are trained and certified to work undercover. A quarter of those agents have worked more than one undercover assignment in their careers. And of those, less than 10 percent of them have been involved in more than five undercover cases. Over the course of his career, McGowan has worked more than 50 undercover cases. 

    In this extraordinary and unprecedented book, McGowan will take listeners through some of his biggest cases, from international drug busts to the Russian and Italian mobs to biker gangs and contract killers to corrupt unions and SWAT work. Ghost is an unparalleled view into how the FBI, through the courage of its undercover Special Agents, nails the bad guys. McGowan infiltrates groups at home and abroad, assembles teams to create the myths he lives, concocts fake businesses, coordinates the busts, and helps carry out the arrests. Along the way, we meet his partners and colleagues at the FBI, who pull together for everything from bank jobs to the Boston Marathon bombing case, mafia dons, and, perhaps, most significantly, El Chapo himself and his Sinaloa Cartel.

    Ghost is the ultimate insider's account of one of the most iconic institutions of American government, and a testament to the incredible work of the FBI.

    Interesting story, but narration eh

    Good book if your interested in FBI undercover work, or investigations in general. The detail about the cases is very fascinating. Some of the writing could have been better but it wasn’t bad. You just hear “you can’t make this shit up” a few times to many. But the narration was hard for me to get past at times. I think if I was reading the book as opposed to listening to it I wouldn’t have imagined the voice to be the way it was narrated. I almost didn’t buy it because of the narration on the sample. But I’m glad I did. Book was interesting overall and it’s a quick listen.

    Great book

    Great book great story. Television and video games have ruined my attention span and imagination so I can’t do fiction anymore. This genre (and this book more specifically) of non-fiction fits right into my overstimulated brain. The story is gripping, the action is intense and the best part is that it is real.

    Also, the narrator is something from folklore. His voice is the perfect match of gravely manhood mixed with soothing class. Like a saddle in a cigarette store he ties together the sweet and savory with hints of cardamom and black currant.

    Highly recommend. -Jake The Steak

    I suffered through it - so you don’t have to!! (Honest review)

    Please do not download this travesty!

    The narrator (from the voice over “In a world...”) is absolutely terrible but somehow you get used to it. But it is brutal.

    The author is definitely a hero and did amazing work for America and should be recognized as such. But he comes across as the most unlikeable person in the history of the world. I’m not sure why the author painted him this way, but from context i believe it’s 100% the author. There is ZERO modesty in this clown and his arrogance is cringeworthy throughout. I almost stopped listening 50 times bc you get sick of him being the best human to ever grace the earth and everyone else, from criminals to his superiors, as not on par with his level of pure excellence. The subject matter is fascinating, and being a true crime buff i did enjoy the topic, his character was too sufferable to enjoy. You find yourself routing for the bad guys because he’s the biggest pos. Terrible listen. I only finished it so I could help steer others in a different direction. Absolute trash.

    Not a fan of the style

    The agent did some remarkable things. Too much "puffing out his chest" in the telling of the story for my taste.

    Inside scoop

    My old man worked with him in Philadelphia. We listened to Mr. McGowns book, very cool to hear the inside scoop from someone who worked along side McGown.

    Great book! Great narration by Mike Dawson.

    Unbelievable stories brought to life by Mike Dawson‘s narration. One of those audiobooks that you honestly don’t want to turn off and listen to every free moment I had. Really felt like I was there as the story was told.
