I am pleased to announce that Mob Talk will debut on Crime Wire Radio on September 21 at 9 p.m. Eastern. Co-hosts Andrew DiDonato and I will have former FBI undercover agent Jack Garcia as our guest.
Joaquin “Jack” Garcia is considered by many of his peers and leading FBI experts, to have been the most successful undercover agent in the history of the Bureau.
In his 26 years of service with the FBI, and as an undercover agent in over 100 major operations, Jack is best known for his role as “Jack Falcone,” a self-described Sicilian jewel thief and drug dealer from Miami, Florida, who infiltrated New York’s Gambino crime family. After nearly three years of investigation, the case resulted in the arrest and conviction of 39 mobsters, including the top members of the Gambinos. Jack played his undercover role so convincingly that he was even proposed for membership into La Cosa Nostra.
Jack’s other successful undercover investigations included corrupt politicians in Atlantic City, New Jersey; and corrupt police officers in the Hollywood, Florida, Broward County, Florida, Boston Police Department, and the San Juan, Puerto Rico Police Department. He also worked undercover in major drug cases, including dealers and leaders of the Colombian and Mexican drug cartels.
Jack speaks Spanish fluently and is a member of the FBI Agents Association, the Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI, the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, the NYPD Honor Legion, and the Society of FBI Alumni. He is a guest speaker and lecturer at the FBI Academy, the FBI National Academy, and the FBI Citizens Academy on Sensitive Operations and Undercover Agent Training. He has been featured on 60 Minutes, the Investigative Discovery Channel, CBS Evening News, and the CBS Early Show, among others.
Jack’s book, Making Jack Falcone, was a New York Times bestseller.
Listeners can interact with the hosts and guest through the show’s chat room or by telephone call in.
