For years, Todd Blodgett dealt with the nastiest, professional anti-Semites and organized White Supremacists in America and Europe. As a full-time, paid FBI informant, he was on a first-name basis with money-laundering Holocaust deniers and the leaders of the KKK, the Aryan Nations, and other HATE organizations. While working in this sordid realm, Mr. Blodgett was addicted to crack cocaine - which wasn't part of his plan, when he was serving on Ronald Reagan's White House staff.
The author's unlikely journey from the White House to the crack house, and then to the 'Big House' - the Washington, D.C. Jail - is a fascinating, true story. What Blodgett experienced makes 'The Wire', 'The West Wing', 'American History X', 'The Sopranos' and 'Breaking Bad' look like 'The Brady Bunch'.
