Retired agent Jerry Hester reviews his Paesan Blues investigation, an FBI undercover operation that targeted Italian mafioso Roberto Settineri’s global crime network with the collaboration of the Italian National Police (INP) and, surprisingly, the cooperation of Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein. After the case review, we discuss Jerry’s new book, Mafia Miami: FBI Politics and How an Investigation was Nearly Sabotaged. The book focuses on the investigation of Settineri, but Jerry also discusses administrative roadblocks he encountered while running the complex investigation. Jerry served in the FBI for 20 years.
