In DeLorean’s Shadow, Stephen L. Arrington

The author wrote this illustrated book exposing the biggest drug conspiracy in U.S. History. It contains photographs, copies of documents, and illustrations by world-famous underwater artists. The John Z. DeLorean drug trial ruled the headlines of newspapers worldwide. The case commanded the attention of the highest levels of the FBI, DEA, CIA, IRS, DOJ, Attorney General’s Office, Interpol, Number 10 Downing Street, and the White House. I have the FBI Investigative Reports, the transcripts of the FBI’s secret tapes and the investigative reports from the Law Firm that DeLorean hired. I know the things that the jury never heard, and what the Federal Agents tried to hide because I am the last surviving defendant. It involved Pablo Escobar the leader of the Medellin Drug Cartel, his #1 hitman, Rafael Salazar, “AKA Rafa, and Max Mermelstein who smuggled 56 tons of cocaine into the United States–and sent over $300,000,000 back down to Medellin. The defendants were John Z. DeLorean, creator of the DeLorean Motor Car, Morgan Hetrick a Texas Maverick who claimed to be the #1 cocaine smuggler on the West Coast, and Stephen L. Arrington, Vietnam vet, USN bomb disposal frogman, pilot and author of this book.

In DeLorean’s Shadow is a compelling, gritty and intriguing true crime story/memoir that will captivate as well as entertain readers for many hours on end. In DeLorean’s Shadow is a book I knew I had to read and review thanks to the shocking but intriguing premise.

DeLorean, a man who was arrested for trafficking cocaine and then the reader will learn of the author and how the drugs were in his car. Stephen L. Arrington was arrested for having $28,000,000 worth of cocaine, and so the biggest drug trial started. I do not want to spoil the story Arrington tells because he best tells it; however, what follows is a truly shocking insight into the drug trial of the century.

Usually, with true crime stories, I find that the author holds back; the author typically holds back on the more delicate details. However, Stephen L. Arrington is an author who is brazen with his work, and so he holds back on nothing regarding the crimes and the going on’s which occurred. The outcome of this is an accurate portrayal of a drug conspiracy that will fascinate as well as horrify readers.

Arrington is an author I admire for many reasons, one of them being the fact that he does not hold back with regards to the crimes explored throughout the book and the other because of his eloquent prose that captivated me from the very start.
