This wickedly funny non-fiction book spans the 30-year career of (retired) DEA Special Agent Philippa LeVine. She spent the bulk of her early years in a clandestine lab group chasing methamphetamine cooks and tweekers. In salty sarcastic cop-speak, she provides a unique insight into investigating meth labs in San Diego, California during the 1980’s biker heyday. Follow her through the investigation of a chemical supplier involving murder for hire, buried treasure, and of course, meth labs.
Later she rises to the pinnacle of mid level bureaucracy taking us deep into DEA Headquarters for a look into one of the scariest places of all. You will laugh out loud as you learn the truth about meth, the pharmaceutical companies and federal drug law enforcement.
Philippa LeVine was a Special Agent with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration for thirty years and is now retired. She lives in Northern Virginia.
