9780692595022: A Species Of Insanity: The Story of Drug Kingpin Jerry Allen LeQuire

A Species of Insanity is the story of the rise and fall of drug kingpin Jerry Allen LeQuire, whose career spanned marijuana smuggling to becoming a trusted associate within the Medellin Cartel. In an up-close and gripping account, the author reveals the details of drug smuggling and details how the Central Intelligence Agency covertly operates within both the cartel and the political climate of South and Central America. Using nearly four years of interviews with LeQuire, covering four different prisons, Biggs shows how LeQuire built a criminal enterprise that made over $400 million, only to be captured after, for the second time, he refused a CIA request to work for them. When he is betrayed by his ex-wife, using volumes of trial transcripts the author creates a riveting narrative that shows to what lengths the government will go to secure victory, and what a bitter woman will do to get away with murder. The book also discusses the $280,000,000 the government believed LeQuire had hidden. Packed with drama, A Species of Insanity is a vivid portrayal of a man willing to do almost anything to make money, and a government equally willing to stop him.
