I’m often asked if writing about the cia is dangerous and my answer is always YES. There’s a movie, Kill The Messenger, about a reporter named Gary Webb who exposed the CIA’s role in cocaine smuggling. His career was destroyed and he was murdered, though they claimed it was suicide. (2 bullets---lol.) My last conversation with the spy boys was not exactly reassuring but I’m supposing they aren’t that interested; maybe hoping is a better word. I offered to hold off some of my findings but they said it was fine---even implying that one of the men I discovered was really a cia agent. Of course, he’s dead. Go see the movie; it it’s anything like the book, it should be great.
My name is Richard Biggs and I'm a writer. My latest book is about Jerry Allen LeQuire, a convicted drug kingpin, who rejected two offers from the CIA to work for them, and has been in a federal prison for over 30 years.
