Summary
"Paul LeRoux, a former cybersecurity entrepreneur, transformed transnational organized crime. He was Netflix to Blockbuster, Spotify to Tower Records. His criminal empire stretched from Southeast Asia to Brazil and generated hundreds of millions of dollars in sales of arms, drugs, chemicals, bombs, missile technology, and assassinations. Initially, LeRoux was a ghost, but he gained the attention of a band of DEA agents who used undercover informants to penetrate LeRoux's inner circle and bring him down. For five years Elaine Shannon immersed herself in LeRoux's shadowy world. She gained exclusive access to the agents and players, and takes us on a shocking tour of this dark frontier, putting you in the room with these people and their jeopardy, frustration, anger, and small victories, creating a narrative with a breathtaking edge, immediacy, and a stranger-than-fiction reality. Remarkable, disturbing, and utterly engrossing, Hunting LeRoux introduces a new breed of criminal--and a new kind of true crime story. It is a look into the future--a future that is dark"--Back cover
