The Anatomy of Mr. Big
From: The "Mr Big" Sting
This chapter builds on the case studies of previous chapters by breaking the RCMP’s Mr. Big operations into the component parts: case selection, making contact, establishing a relationship, the nudge towards disclosure, the ultimate interview with Mr. Big, and the follow-up. Every Mr. Big case is unique, but there are common patterns and issues. Ethical, legal, and moral quagmires are discussed.
