In Confidential Source Ninety-Six, the man who goes by the pseudonym Roman Caribe recounts the harrowing life he's led as the most successful confidential informant in the history of US law enforcement. A onetime mastermind narcotics distributor, Caribe first saw the tragedies caused by the drug trade with his own eyes as he got to know the women involved with his business partner and the children that they raised. By the time Caribe was arrested in a drug bust, he had made up his mind to get out of the business for good. Rather than beat the charges, as his lawyer advised him to, he would confess, flip sides, and work for the federal government. He has spent the two decades since working for a web of federal agencies, leveraging inside information and connections gained while living his own criminal past to launch audacious operations that no other undercover agent would dream of. While projecting the swagger of a drug lord, Caribe gets inside the minds of the gang and cartel leaders he goes toe to toe with. He becomes an actor risking everything to perform every night - one minor slip in his character and Caribe and his family may disappear forever. And when leaders of Mexico's Sinalao Cartel, which he was trying to ensnare, tracked down Caribe's home and visited his wife and children there unannounced, he was forced to uproot them and confront the unthinkable dangers that he brought into their lives. Unfolding in Southern California mansions, makeshift DEA trailers set up in the middle of the redwoods, and the anonymous fast food parking lots where kilograms of cocaine and heroin changed hands, Confidential Source Ninety-Six is the epic saga of one man's quest to redeem himself in the eyes of his family and a thrilling, intimate look at the law enforcement battle that rages on beneath our noses. 1.

He won't discuss money, but he now accepts Visa: Settlement, $3 billion, taking on MasterCard, Priceless.(The New York Times) Lloyd Constantine began his career in legal services, representing impoverished clients in civil rights and constitutional cases. Decades later, he would make headlines for representing retailers and consumers against a cartel that undermined one of the fundamental tenets of commerce in America: competition. A man who thrives on competition himself, Constantine now gives us the insider's story on the biggest antitrust lawsuit in history - a case that pitted his small firm against financial-industry giants Visa and MasterCard, along with Clifford-Chance, the largest law firm in the world. Combining the real-life legal drama of A Civil Action with the relentless pace of a John Grisham novel, Constantine delivers the definitive account of a case that made history and will be studied for years to come. Beginning in the 1980s, when Visa and MasterCard - whose combined market share topped 95 percent - announced the merger of their debit card networks, Priceless traces the fallout of this catastrophic union, from raised eyebrows among attorney generals to the launch of a major class-action lawsuit. For the five merchants initially represented by Constantine's firm (Wal-Mart, Sears, Circuit City, Safeway, and The Limited), the reality of the situation was clear: Millions of U.S. businesses were being illegally coerced in a scheme that forced excessive fees on merchants every time a customer used a debit card. When a $3.4 billion settlement was reached in 2003, the court estimated that the case would save stores and shoppers up to $87 billion in the first decade alone. A suspense-filled story with a vibrant cast of characters - and a smoking-gun document known as "The Shark" - Priceless travels from corporate backrooms to the courtroom to capture one of America's biggest triumphs in the high-stakes w 1.
