After a stellar twenty-three-year career with the Drug Enforcement Administration, Dan Addario's own part fighting in the War on Drugs didn't end. For good reason. Because in July of 1993, he lost his thirty-one-year-old son to a crisis that shows no signs of abating.

With Chasing the Dragon, Addario becomes the highest-ranking DEA agent ever to pen a book that includes the sum total of his experiences investigating narcotics hotbeds across the globe. These events include a stint as DEA's regional director for the entire continent of South America, followed by Addario's tenure running drug interdiction efforts in the infamous Golden Triangle.

Though the phrase commonly means "chasing the high" that heroin provides, Chasing the Dragon in Addario's world is centered around hunting the monster that so defined, and ultimately upended, his own life. A monster no one else has ever been able to catch.

Until now.
