Retired F.B.I. Agent and author Tom Vinton is our guest. He gives an inside look at how the F.B.I. took down some of the most violent NY Mafia Families. From wire taps to working with informants. Tom also details the hazards that many law enforcement officers face when working closely with dangerous and unscrupulous informants. He talks about his book "Sanctioned Treachery, Portrait of a Drug Informant" and how these informant relationships damaged the careers of some law enforcement officers.
