More About The Pretender by Marc Ruskin
 
 
 
Overview

The FBI is one of the world s most famous crime-fighting organizations, investigating crimes ranging from terrorism and organized crime to civil rights violations and fraud. For over a decade, Marc Ruskin was one of the Bureau s best undercover agents. During the 1990s and early 2000s, he worked numerous long- and short-term cases investigating instances of fraud, public corruption, corporate maleficence, violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, narcotic trafficking, counterfeiting, and false flag operations.

During a long and dynamic career, Ruskin s undercover work led to successful prosecutions of such varied defendants as international terrorists, members of La Cosa Nostra, and extortionist rabbis. Often working three or four cases at a time, Ruskin was constantly switching identities and always had to be sure that his ID, clothing, and frame of mind matched the role he was about to play.

In clear and concise prose, Ruskin lays out the details of how the right agent is chosen for a UC job, how a bogus identity is carefully manufactured and backstopped to withstand scrutiny, and the means by which cases are painstakingly assembled over many months. The Pretender is poised to become the definitive narrative of undercover ops, outlining the FBI s procedures, successes, failures, and insights into the culture of the new-era FBI.
