Retired agent Bob Hamer served in the FBI for 26 years. While in the Bureau, Hamer, a Marine Corps veteran, worked organized crime, gangs, terrorism, and child exploitation cases. Much of his career was spent undercover in assignments lasting anywhere from several days to more than three years. Bob successfully posed as a drug dealer, contract killer, international weapons dealer, white-collar criminal, and pedophile. In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, he is interviewed about infiltrating the security-obsessed North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). Disguised as an aging pedophile, he was able to crack the group’s extensive international network and to identify and gather evidence on sex tourists traveling overseas to sexually exploit children. Bob Hamer received numerous awards throughout his career including the coveted FBI Director’s Award for Distinguished Service and five United States Attorney Awards for Distinguished Service. He has written and consulted for television and is the author of three award-winning books and three novellas. His non-fiction book, THE LAST UNDERCOVER, details his FBI undercover career, with special emphasis on his courageous assignment to penetrate NAMBLA.

Thank you for what you did for kids, Bob. You are an asset! I love your books!

Bob jokes, but it was definitely a courageous assignment.
