1 Review
Smokescreen is a riveting true-life tale of a brilliant undercover agent who infiltrated the world of organized crime. Tall, handsome, larger-than-life Cal Broeker was a successful businessman with a wife and two kids, respected in his upstate New York community. When he discovered that his business partners in Montreal were linked to organized crime, Broeker's life — and reputation — went into a tailspin. To regain his good name, Broeker became an undercover agent for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Neither a cop nor an informer, Broeker was able through a combination of personal charisma and situational savvy to go further undercover than any law enforcement agent. He penetrated into the heart of biker gangs, drug cartels, Mohawk smuggling operations, and the Russian mafia.
