The DEA's Secret Mission to Hunt Down A Notorious Ecstasy KingpinBook - 2009
For nearly a decade, Ecstasy kingpin Oded Tuito was the mastermind behind a drug ring that used strippers and Hassidic teenagers to mule millions of pills from Holland to the party triangle--Los Angeles, New York, and Miami. This is a journey through the groundbreaking undercover investigations that led to the toppling of a billion-dollar trafficking network--starting in 1995 when New York DEA Agent Robert Gagne infiltrated clubland to uncover a thriving drug scene supported by two cultures: pill-popping club kids and Israeli dealers. Gagne's obsessive mission to take down Tuito's network met unexpected challenges and personal discoveries that almost crippled his own family. Woven into the narrative are the stories of Tuito's underlings who struggled with addiction as they ran from the law, and the experiences of a veteran Israeli police officer who aided Gagne while chasing after his own mob target.--From publisher description.
