It was his friendship with them that led to his recruitment by the US Department of Justice to operate a covert banking operation in Mexico for the Mexican drug cartels. Question: Why did you decide to write this book? Keith Bulfin : After I'd finished working for the agency it was an emotional journey for me and I was very depressed and wanted to work out what I could do, with my life. By writing the book, it was like therapy for me and I found an enormous amount of relief.
Once I'd completed writing the book I spoke to Random House and other people about my journey, I was very emotional and my stress levels were huge, in the sense that I would become very red in the face. Now that I am talking about my journey, more and the more I talk about it the more relief I get with the more people that know about my experiences.
Undercover: A Novel of a Life
It is an enormous relief to me to be speaking about this. Unfortunately my family knew nothing about what I was involved in and as a consequence of that they've only recently found out about the book and recently found out what I was actually doing. They are now going through an emotional ride, themselves as they didn't know. They have said they don't want to read the book and that all of the information is news to them. My family and friends have also said "now we understand why you were so quiet and that you didn't talk about it". My family will go through the same sort of period, it needs time for them to talk about it and be open about it and they will then feel the relief, that I do, right now.

Question: What do you hope comes from the book? Keith Bulfin : I think that what people understand from the Government Agencies is that they can manipulate people and can use people; I am one example of that and I talk about that. I also talk about the girl who worked at the CIA and the film called Fair Play where she was exposed, she made that comment and I saw the trailer- I feel for her when she says "I've got to fight back, I'm not going to let them walk all over me" because otherwise they will destroy you. She fought back because they had set out to destroy her and she wanted to tell her story and has now beaten them at their own game.
In my case, they made promises to me and then at the end of the day they don't come through, with those promises. I did this for a number of reasons and one of those was I didn't have a choice in the first place and then I thought this book gives me credibility and then allows me to reestablish myself not only financially but with the creditability. The backing of the US Department of Justice- that would be great! Request this item to view in the Library's reading rooms using your library card.
