The Medellín Agent

Watermarked PDF

Behind enemy lines . . .

The roar of jet turbines gives way to the din of jungle insects as the Colombian army VH-22 disappears over the trees. We're alone now, on the sweltering slopes of the Cordillera Occidental, fifty klicks behind FARC lines. And ten klicks from the crash site-an F-23 downed over enemy territory. The CIA didn't tell us what it had been up to-probably didn't tell congress either-but whatever it was, we can bet we're not the only one looking for the wreck.

The tenor of the forest noise changes just as Josh's arm snaps into the danger signal. At first there's nothing, just the drip of sweat running off my brow as I crouch, frozen. Then comes the muttered sound of Spanish voices, and Josh slowly signaling "enemy in sight." Damn. Not 200 meters off the LZ and we hit a patrol. It's going to be a long day.

I quietly flick the safety off my AUG . . .

After decades of struggle against minor guerrilla groups, in 1999 Colombia faces an all-out war against the heavily-armed, insanely aggressive drug lords of the Medellín Cartel. A political agenda is no longer a necessary part of the insurrection—in the dark and brutal world of Millennium's End, greed and criminality are just as legitimate reasons to overthrow an government. So as an indifferent world watches, Colombia struggles against increasingly difficult odds of survival—making for plenty of work for a BlackEagle cell.

The Medellín Agent is a complete sourcebook on this bloody war, covering Colombia's geography and history as well as the forces and agendas on either side of the battle lines. Also included is a complete adventure set in the heart or war-torn Colombia.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
