    Author is a Liar (Never a USMC SF Dude)

    I got through the first chapter and fignured out the author is a bold face liar. He claims to be a USMC Vietnam Vet. He claimed to be in Special Forces and a part of the Pheonix Program (CIA Program). Lets start there since I quite reading the book. He claims as an enlisted man his MOS (Military occupational specialty) is 18A. An 18A is an Army Officer MOS for a Special Forces OFFICER. The 18 series MOS in the USMC is a tank driver. He refered to Special Forces Assessment and selection (SFAS) as Special Forces Selection and Assessement or as he refered to it as SFSA. Wrong again. He claimed this training continued until he got into country. SFAS was not even implemented until the late 70s or early 80s. Based on these facts I quit reading the book. If he lied about this what else did he lie about? The guy is an SF want-a-be and full of dung. Based on this I think he is incapible of telling the truth. I am not a pissed biker but a pissed retired US Army Colonel. When I pick up a book that is non-fiction I don't expect to read fiction. The publisher should do better research. They dropped the ball on this one.

    Chilling accounts, great read

    I have read several books of written by foreign & domestic Law Enforcement Agents No Angel by Jay Dobyns, Running with the Devil by Kerrie Droben, Under & Alone and Armed & Dangerous by William Queen; while they are all very good books, great in fact. They don't try to over glorify what it is that the L.E.A. did, they tell as true a tale as can be done without putting the teller in a legal bind. The reader is shown that what these men and women do is not pretty and can have lasting effects on their & their family's lives. I liked Mr. Caine's book because it shows a story of a man who got dealt a bad hand and was able to make the best of it. Alex Caine is many things, a world class martial artist, a writer, a government approved con man, a top notch informant, a convicted criminal, a winner & loser in all things life. But above all he is a hero. He has made more sacrifices both personally & professionally in the name of honor, integrity, loyalty, & faith than any one man or woman should ever be asked to. If you were only going to read one book about an agent who assisted in taking down an Outlaw Motor Cycle Gang, I would absolutely suggest reading this book.

    Entertaining

    While most of this book is entertaining it is obvious that there is quite a bit of embellishment. Best read in the frame of mind of a story- not as historical fact.
