The Hunt for Khun Sa coverThe Hunt for Khun Sa is a true story based on never-before-revealed interviews with US military "black project" operatives, former Mafia chieftain Salvatore "Bill" Bonanno and dozens of the DEA/CIA agents who were involved.

Here is an inside, up-close account of Khun Sa and Group 41 – the man who for nearly twenty years controlled around seventy percent of the world's heroin supply and the unlikely band of New York-based DEA specialists charged to capture or kill him. The Hunt for Khun Sa pulses with energy, irony and, ultimately, the incredible and tragic truth about a global drug operation that few know about, and even fewer fully understand.
More than a true-life thriller, The Hunt for Khun Sa is a tour de force of investigative journalism on par with Mark Boden's bestseller Killing Pablo. It is a stark, realistic portrayal of the international outlaw the US State Department branded "the worst enemy the world has."
The Hunt for Khun Sa goes behind the curtain of the Southeast Asian heroin trade to show the historical grounding of the CIA's involvement in global drug trafficking, how monsters like Khun Sa are created in the first place, and the real-life consequences of Machiavellian geopolitical schemes on the lives of everyday Americans.
