When Kentucky blueblood Drew Thornton parachuted to his death in September 1985 - carrying thousands in cash and 150 pounds of cocaine - the gruesome end of his startling life blew open a scandal that reached to the most secret circles of the US government. The story of Thornton and “The Company” he served, and the lone heroic fight of State Policeman Ralph Ross against an international web of corruption, is one of the most portentous tales of the 20th century.

Good story if you're from the area

Good book if you are from the area but the narrator is horrible. If you cannot pronounce the county of Kentucky in which the story takes place you are in trouble. Horrible southern accents that are stereotypical but not factual.
