Former Undercover Agent Signs Book at Winston County Library

Charlie Spillers was no longer undercover as he spoke to a group of locals on Friday at the Winston County Library and conducted an interview with  a local TV station.  Spillers, the author of the book “Confessions of an Undercover Agent” was signing books and regaling the crowd with tales from his life as an undercover narcotics agent and as an assistant US attorney. Spillers spent much of his career undercover with the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics. The book tells the story from the start of his career in the Baton Rouge Police Department till the completion of his undercover work with MBN.

 His book, Confessions Of An Undercover Agent, is currently the number one best-selling book in Mississippi.

 “It was a special event,” says librarian Beth Edwards. “He is so interesting and, after reading his book, I’m not sure how’s he’s actually still alive! This man has seen it all.” She went on to say that “…he has finished one novel and is halfway through with his second. They will be international spy thrillers. We’ll be sure and have Charlie back for a book event/book signing when they are published.”
