A Conversation with Robert Mazur LIVE ON STAGE!
Tampa Theatre and Oxford Exchange are proud to announce an intimate conversation with bestselling author Robert Mazur, discussing his new book, The Betrayal, at 2:00pm Saturday, Aug. 27, moderated by former WTVT-FOX 13 news anchor John Wilson.
Mazur has earned global acclaim as one of the world’s leading experts on the financial escapades of the underworld. For years – in the eyes of organized crime leaders, at least – he was a highly successful, mob-connected money launderer who helped manage their illicit fortunes. But some of the most famous and deadly drug cartel bosses on his client list offered a $1/2 million price tag for his head when arrests were made around the world and Mazur was revealed to be a highly-trained U.S. federal undercover agent.
Mazur is the New York Times bestselling author of The Infiltrator, a memoir about a portion of his undercover life, acting as a conduit between ruthless Medellin Cartel drug barons and corrupt senior executives that cleaned billions in blood-stained money through otherwise respectable international banks and businesses. The book was developed into a major motion picture filmed largely in Tampa and starring Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) as Mazur.
Robert’s new book chronicles what happened next: a second two-year undercover assignment he carried out subsequent to the events in The Infiltrator. The Betrayal (which is also being developed for the big screen) focuses not only on his infiltration of money launderers, corrupt bankers, and drug kingpins in Colombia’s Cali Cartel, but also addresses his near death at the hands of a law enforcement colleague who secretly compromised his undercover identity to the underworld.
For security reasons, Robert Mazur has never previously appeared publicly, and will likely not appear publicly again. To learn more about the story of The Betrayal, CLICK HERE FOR A VIDEO (Contains scenes of violence that may be upsetting. Viewer discretion is advised.)
Tickets are $28.50 at the Box Office and $29.50 online, which includes a pre-signed hardcover copy of The Betrayal. The author will be available for a post-discussion signing line (but no photo ops!) if guests would like to get their book personalized. Oxford Exchange will also be selling additional copies in the lobby.
