To say former DEA special agent Mike Fredericks had a colorful career would be an understatement. But it wasn’t always chasing the worst of the worst. It began with the Great Thanksgiving Turkey Caper. Realizing he was destined for bigger and more legal things, Mike started with the Sky Marshals and his first almost skyjacking. He went to Customs before landing at DEA. His first international assignment was in Colombia, chasing the same bad guys Muprh and Javier would go after years later. Mike was prepared for a lot of things, but being aboard a cruise ship that was hijacked by terrorists wasn’t one of them.
Mike puts these stories and more in his book “Busting Drug Dealers: True Story Diaries of a DEA Special Agent.” You can find the book on his website Special Agent Press along with lots of pictures from his work.
