"This is also the story of many dedicated, gifted - indeed creative - FBI agents who managed and backed up the operations. It shows how the rules of criminal prosecution determine how undercover operations must be conducted. The story also illustrates the dangers and psychological re-entry problems faced by agents surfacing from extended undercover operations." "After he had finished each undercover role, Ed Robb had to find a way to shed his criminal persona and return to his life, his family, and the FBI. No other agent in the Bureau had ever faced a similar challenge. Ed Robb retired from the FBI in 1990 and became a Virginia' State Senator the next year. After four years in the Virginia Senate, he was elected Sheriff of Albemarle County, the office he holds today. He remains a lawman."--BOOK JACKET.
