Elaine Shannon - Hunting LeRoux: The Inside Story of the DEA Takedown of a Criminal Genius and His Empire — in conversation with Karen Tumulty

Upcoming Event
Monday, March 4, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

A veteran investigative reporter and author of Desperados, the basis for Michael Mann's NBC miniseries Drug Wars, Shannon has written a riveting account of the career and eventual downfall of Paul Calder LeRoux. A new kind of outlaw, LeRoux used encrypted mobile devices, cloud sharing, and other digital tools to build a global criminal network. This Cartel 4.0 raked in hundreds of millions of dollars by selling arms, drugs, chemicals, and more. But LeRoux met his match with a team of DEA operatives as willing as he to use unorthodox methods. With the suspense of a thriller, Shannon chronicles the five years it took the 960 Group to bring down their quarry. Shannon will be in conversation with Karen Tumulty, columnist for The Washington Post.
