Summary

This true story of an ex-Marine who fought crime as an undercover cop, a narcotics agent, and finally a federal prosecutor spans a decade of crime fighting and narrow escapes. Charlie Spillers dealt with a remarkable variety of career criminals, including heroin traffickers, safecrackers, burglars, auto thieves, and members of Mafia and Mexican drug smuggling operations. In this riveting tale, the author recounts fascinating experiences and the creative methods he used to succeed and survive in a difficult and sometimes extremely dangerous underworld life.
As a young officer with the Baton Rouge Police Department, ex-Marine Charlie Spillers first went undercover to infiltrate criminal groups to gather intelligence.
After Baton Rouge, he joined the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics and for the next five years continued working undercover, from the Gulf Coast to Memphis and from New Orleans to Houston. He capped off a unique career by becoming a federal prosecutor and the justice attaché for Iraq.
The book is published by University Press of Mississippi.

Apology from the Author

What made the experience of listening to Confessions of an Undercover Agent: Adventures, Close Calls, and the Toll of a Double Life the most enjoyable?

I'm the author of "Confessions." Thanks to all who enjoyed the audio. I wasn't involved in making the audio version and heard it for the first time only after it was released. The book is filled with excitement, drama and emotions, but unfortuntely, the audio narration doesn't convey it. I asked that the audio be redone, but I had no say in the matter because the audio rights had been sold to a third party. I apologize to all who found the audio book lacking - as I have. Please try the hardcover, Kindle and paperback editions.

narrator needs work

the story would have been better if the narrator would have been onto the story himself, it seemed as if he was getting bored reading the story. to me he wasn't a very good narrator. the story was good, but the narrator needs to learn how to keep the listener involved and interested in the story a little more. otherwise the agent had a awesome story, and I commend him for h is bravery and diligence in undercover work.
