The undercover operator is immersed in a gray world, a world where the lines between black and white, wrong and right, are no longer clearly defined. To be truly undercover, an operator must adapt to his dark environment, often crossing the line between what is legal and what is not in order to maintain the illusion he is one of the bad guys he is trying to take down. He is always in danger of plunging too deep into the darker shades of gray; some operators never make it back.

The silent, lingering question never goes away: "Is he really that good of an undercover operator, or he has turned into a gangster and we just haven't caught him yet?" An experienced road patrol officer, author James A. Martin (code name Ferret) was transferred to the Tri County Metro Narcotics team, based in Lansing, Michigan, in 1983. As the newest addition to the team, Ferret quickly learned the ways of an undercover operator, and he was good at it . . . maybe too good. Life among drug cartels, street gangs and two-bit dealers was fraught with danger. Ferret faced these along with the risk of being exposed as a cop at any moment. Being undercover was dangerous, but for Ferret, it was also a huge, addictive rush. Follow Ferret as he recounts his undercover operations in vivid detail. Each time you think he couldn't go further, he shocks the reader by going to new heights. For many cops, each undercover mission was thought to be extraordinary, but for Ferret those missions were the training ground that would take him to even higher achievements. But, there was a cost . . .
