Overview

Nuestro hombre en la DEA narra la doble vida de Baruch Vega, un fotógrafo de hermosas modelos que negociaba la libertad de narcotraficantes en Estados Unidos
El destino de Vega se cruza con el de dos narcotraficantes en apuros que compartían la ambición del dinero de la droga y el drama de haber perdido trágicamente la vista en un ojo. Los Cíclopes, nombre con el que exportaban droga a Estados Unidos el médico Carlos Ramón Zapata y el ingeniero industrial Gabriel Úsuga, no eran narcotraficantes comunes. Estudiaban arte, leían historia y psicología, montaron un laboratorio en la antigua Yugoslavia para producir cocaína sintética y pretendían inventar la vacuna contra el SIDA. En su afán por abrir nuevas rutas de drogas, se aliaron con un príncipe de Arabia Saudita y llevaron en un jet de la familia real saudí a París casi un centenar de maletas llenas de cocaína.
Vega, quien además colaboró con la CIA en operaciones anticomunistas en Chile y otros países suramericanos, fue el gestor de un plan singular, casi inverosímil, de rendir a los grandes narcotraficantes de Colombia sin disparar un solo tiro, luego de llevarlos a celebrar en prostíbulos de Panamá con agentes de la DEA
El libro es producto de muchas horas de entrevistas sostenidas con Vega así como con varios narcotraficantes y autoridades federales norteamericanas. Sus capítulos se basan también en documentos judiciales inéditos del caso de Los Cíclopes y grabaciones encubiertas de los gobiernos de EstadosUnidos y Colombia en operaciones antinarcóticos.
En palabras del propio Reyes, "esta narración es una de esas pocas oportunidades que los periodistas colombianos tenemos de contar la historia subterránea de nuestro país a través de personajes reales afectados por la contagiosa esquizofrenia de una guerra majadera contra un vicio".
El libro además ofrece otros episodios que surcan la vida de los protagonistas, tales como:
- La infiltración en la Embajada de los Estados Unidos en Colombia por narcos y guerrilleros.
- La operación encubierta que culminó con el arresto de un ex congresista danés que simpatizaba con las AUC.
- Los coqueteos de Carlos Castaño con la DEA.
- El testimonio del narcotraficante Alejandro Bernal sobre el presunto pago de sobornos políticos mexicanos y agentes federales de Estados Unidos por parte del capo mexicano de las drogas Amado Carrillo.
- Los juegos con candela de dos agentes de la DEA que creyeron en las fórmulas de Vega.
