On The Fringe Of History is Chief Inspector Sarge Hoteko's personal memoir, including his experiences as a narcotic interdiction and antiterrorism instructor in 16 countries around the globe. Hoteko reveals the shocking, rampant and systematic corruption within many of those governments, especially; Pakistan, Mexico, Bolivia and Nigeria--the most corrupt nation on earth.
He also depicts how overzealous internal affairs investigators bungled two major cases in Chicago that devastated innocent lives. As Hoteko stated, "Who watches the watchdogs?" He reveals how a biased press unjustly slammed Customs over the O'Hare Airport female search controversy. One NBC investigative reporter stated, "It is better to let a person go rather than to do the strip search. It's better to let the pound of heroin go out on the street..."
On The Fringe of History follows one American's fascinating career around the world and captures the sheer patriotic joy he experienced while serving his country.
