The Bluegrass Conspiracy
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 U.S. 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. -- Book jacket.

Review: The Bluegrass Conspiracy: An Inside Story of Power, Greed, Drugs and MurderUser Review - Kelly - Goodreads
Interesting story that would have done well with a different editor. Growing up in Lexington, it was surreal to read about the corruption going on right down the road. If you can get through the order the information is given and concentrate on the story being told, you will enjoy yourself. Read full review

I enjoyed the topic / subject matter, but it is a hard book to read. It is like reading a text book. Surprised how many typos were missed in the editing process. Read full review
