Elaine Shannon

Elaine Shannon, best-selling author of Hunting LeRoux, tells the exclusive story of transnational organized crime's premier innovator, Paul Calder LeRoux, a twisted genius who created the world's biggest Internet pharmacy, with $300 million in sales during its initial years, then diversified into arms, hard drugs, and murder. She uses her unparalleled sources and access to closely held documents to tell the riveting story of a tech titan who broke bad and did high-dollar deals with Iran, North Korea, the Chinese Triads, Somali pirates, Serb mafia, Colombian cartels, Islamist terrorists in the Philippines and mercenaries of many nations. AP calls the book :a gripping true-crime tale that is both unbelievable while yet being realistic. Investigative journalist Shannon takes the reader beyond the fly-on-the-wall and puts them right into the heart of every action and situation." Publishers Weekly awards the book a coveted red star and says that through Shannon's telling, LeRoux "emerges as perhaps the most significant contemporary criminal not known to the general public for his having 'introduced the principles of twenty-first century entrepreneurship to the dark side of the global economy'."
