    Description

    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.

    From Kentucky

    I am a little disappointed in listening to this book. I found myself yelling the Kentucky pronunciations of many of the names of towns, cities or counties. Would have either loved hearing a Kentuckian narrate this or for the Author to guide the narrator on how things were pronounced.

    Great book. Horrible narration.

    The book was great. Especially if you are from Kentucky. No surprise of the rampant corruption. The narrator was the worst. If I hadn’t wanted to hear the book so badly I would not have been able to get past the first chapter. Her “accent” for Kentuckians was more Louisiana than Kentucky and her total destruction of Kentucky locations and other words was painful. Please have someone else redo this book. I would love to give it another listen but not with this reader. If I see her name attached to another book I won’t be listening.

    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.

    Give Me More Cocaine Bear

    I picked up this book because of my awareness of Cocaine Bear, which you can actually visit in Lexington, KY. That being said, there is very little Cocaine Bear in this book. I wanted an imagined recreation of Cocaine Bear's coked out rampage and final moments in the woods, but I was sorely disappointed in the lack of narrative dedicated to Cocaine Bear. Setting that aside, this book is super interesting and is a great example of investigative journalism being translated into storytelling. The author weaves the whole picture together and even gives a sort of "where are they now" snapshot at the end of the book. The author takes you deep into the woods as this story penetrates the world of drugs and arms smuggling and the local, state, and federal authoritative agencies trying to catch them without ever getting lost in those woods. The author conveys the complex personalities and motives of the people involved in a very clear way. I recommend this book for anyone who likes true crime stories, or anything related to Kentucky. The narration is better than some people make it sound, and is very easily listened to at a faster speed. However, I wanted more Cocaine Bear. I get why there isn't more Cocaine Bear, but I wanted it. If there had been more Cocaine Bear, it would have been 5 stars.

    Great listen. Well written story

    I had my doubts about this one. It seemed like it would be a dud but I gave it a go anyway. Great story and well written organized and performed. The fact that is true is wild. Interesting insights into KY justice, political and police systems. Connections to the Iran Contra affair and other interesting international intrigues are cited and others foreshowed. Very informative and entertaining. Learn the real truth about KFC and how Col Sanders got fleeced by John Y Brown.

    Wild Story

    Wild story, with a lot of different players. Certain points can be a bit dry, whild others don't even seem real.

    Horrible Narration

    Sounded more like a YouTube computer generated voice. Read the book, Unless you like computer generated voices.

    A fascinating listen for a home-grown Kentuckian

    Good story, but reader commits too many errors in pronunciation and portrays an annoying dialect.
