The Cobra - Frederick Forsyth

After a White House catering staff member breaks down due to the death of her grandson via drug overdose, the President orders a report on the viability of the eliminating the cocaine trade, in the main. Which involves setting up an ex-spy with a two billion dollar black ops fund. Cover special forces teams on sea platforms, blackmail of high ranking Colombia cartel officials, that fun stuff. Shooting down drug planes with no warning and destroying the evidence, etc. When, as planned the drying up of the cocaine supply leads to gangs massacring each other on USA streets the political will fails as does the spy's attempt to take some money and run. 3 out of 5
