The Hunt for Khun Sa : Drug Lord of the Golden Triangle
The unbelievable true story of the pursuit of the world's biggest heroin dealer
For two decades, the Burmese warlord Khun Sa controlled nearly 70 percent of the world's heroin supply, yet there has been little written about the legend the U.S. State Department branded the "most evil man in the world"--until now. Through exhaustive investigative journalism, this examination of one of the world's major drug lords from the 1970s to the 1990s goes behind the scenes into the lives of the DEA specialists assigned the seemingly impossible task of capturing or killing him. Known as Group 41, these men would fight for years in order to stop a man who, in fact, had the CIA to thank for his rise to power. Featuring interviews with DEA, CIA, Mafia, and Asian gang members, this meticulously researched and well-documented investigation reaches far beyond the expected and delves into the thrilling and shocking world of the CIA-backed heroin trade.
The Hunt for Khun Sa, Bill Bonanno, "Ron Felber has written a thoughtful, perceptive analysis of the way the American government really works...A blockbuster that readers will find impossible to put down." Presidential Lessons in Leadership, Rep. Charlie Wilson (Charlie Wilson's War), "...An exceptional book...In every description, Felber has discovered something exciting and invigorating. The reader is sure to learn concrete lessons essential to their own leadership development as well!" Presidential Lessons in Leadership, Senator Bob Dole, "...Compelling reading for history buffs, business leaders, or anyone in search of leadership excellence." Searchers: A True Story of Alien Abduction, Jack Valenti, President, Motion Picture Society, "A hair-raising story...genuinely fascinating." The Privacy War, Nadine Strossen, President American Civil Liberties Union, "Felber provides a most timely reminder of how vulnerable our civil liberties are when too much power is concentrated in the hands of too few officials."
