Dog Ear Publishing, 2010 - Biography & Autobiography - 176 pages
The True Adventures of a Vagabond is the story of a young boy growing up in Brooklyn without a father and learning first hand street sense where nothing comes easy for survival in a big city that would, curiously and eventually come in handy in his successful street-smart career as a Special Agent. His early years unwittingly started the chain of life events that would lead him to many foreign countries and meeting some of the most powerful men in the world. The early story continues with the stealing of a car, the engagement to his first wife who happened to be engaged to someone else, and a direction with more question marks than answers, and who, with everything going against a kid growing up in an urban environment, became one of the highest decorated Special Agent within his field of expertise.

Most of SA DePasquale's writings emerged in the form of hundreds of Criminal Investigations later prosecuted in a federal court. Along the way in his notable career, from Asia to Africa to Latin America and elsewhere, SA DePasquale enjoyed an insider-view at the highest levels of government and intelligence that few are privy to. He participated in major drug arrests and investigations that included U.S. involvement, in more ways than commonly acknowledged, with the South American drug trade and the capture of Manuel Noriega.

SA DePasquale's career ended in retirement after being informed by his superiors that an up-coming inspection was more important then the surveillance of a known drug dealers home who had been threatened with death by his suppliers, this lack of surveillance resulted not only with the death of the drug dealer but the brutal death of his four young kids. The writing was on the wall, passing an inspection was more important then the life of others, it was time for him to leave.

After retirement his adventures continued, looking for answers in places there were none, what was SA DePasquale looking for? Maybe after reading this book someone has the answers, until then his adventures continue.
