Storefront Sting:
An ATF Agent’s Life Undercover

This thrilling story memorializes one of the most dangerous-and successful-series of undercover operations conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Written by the special agent who took these operations from disrupting small-time fencing schemes to infiltrating major criminal organizations, this book  is the story of these secretive operations.

During the operations run from 2006 to 2014, Lou Valoze’s fictitious business allowed his team of undercover agents to take a record number of weapons out of circulation and millions of dollars of illegal drugs off the street. Through these covert “storefront” operations, the author developed a unique investigative blueprint for removing guns from the hands of violent felons and drug dealers. This book also explores the dark reality of living a double life and how it becomes difficult to tell the difference between the good guys and bad guys.
