Overview

Step into the world of an ordinary, single father turned spy. Robert Morgan was a loving father who objected to the sale of drugs at his daughter's schoolyard. Unlike most informants trying to save themselves, Morgan wanted to make a difference and risked his life in do so. Chase along with him as he exposes the brains of the Mafia's most brilliant international cartel with infamous mobsters Joseph Bonanno, Meyer Lansky, and John Charles Piazza III-all with solid links to the Five Families.

Under the combined aegis of the DEA and the FBI, Morgan unraveled the most sophisticated money-laundering scheme in the history of international crime and cost the Mafia a documented half billion dollars.

In the end be would also hear a London confession on who killed Pope John Paul I and why. John Paul I died after just one month as pope. Morgan reveals that just hours before his mysterious death the pope had made a request that forced his murder.

Morgan waited three decades to write Citizen Spy in an attempt to avoid sure hits on his now grown daughter's life.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Morgan's discovery of drug-dealing in his daughter's school sends him on a vigilante quest for justice that takes him far beyond backwoods drug dealers. Soon he's chasing down drug runners, going undercover, and infiltrating the mafia, all without the support of law enforcement. When Morgan eventually brings his knowledge to the authorities, he becomes part of an ongoing investigation that culminates in the secondhand confession that gives the title its third M: the mob had Pope John Paul I murdered. The problem with all this is that Morgan provides little evidence beyond his own pulpy accounts, presented often in dialogue seemingly borrowed from The Sopranos. With the investigation closed, and no proof of murder provided, Morgan's undercover efforts seem to have produced nothing. But it's the over-dramatic, overly familiar style that sinks his account. Readers will be surprised that they aren't able to connect to such an exciting subject.

Meet the Author


Robert W. Morgan was a rising Florida filmmaker when he decided to try to make a difference and become an informant. Morgan's activities earned him a pass among the Mafia, not suspecting he was leading a triple life: working for the DEA and FBI, too.

He now lives and writes in Montana.
