After the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War, there was a sudden void in intelligence and covert operations, and companies began hiring spies to protect their secrets, gain an edge on the competition, and keep an eye on their employees. Inside Job is the fascinating, often harrowing story of one of those spies and his undercover investigation of illegal activities-especially drug dealing-at a Boise Cascade plywood mill in Medford, Oregon.
After a three-year stint in a CIA drug-interdiction operation, Ken Bucchi went to work at the plant for Krout and Schneider, a corporate investigations firm, on behalf of Boise management. Cloaking himself as an ordinary mill worker, he played the role of a prolific "crank" dealer. He clawed his way to the center of the illicit circle and established himself as the most ruthless and feared employee in the workplace. By turns humorous and frightening, Inside Job is gripping. The story that unfolds is laced with mortal danger, profound ethical dilemmas, forbidden love, rape, fraud, racial harassment, and gun running, as well as the most fantastic drug distribution scheme imaginable. Peril and suspense lurk behind every page.
Even though it reads like a thriller, Inside Job is all true. And given the issues of protecting individuals' Constitutional rights to privacy and due legal process versus management's responsibility to eradicate illegal activity and racial and sexual harassment in the workplace, it will change the way people look at corporate America forever.
