Bluegrass Conspiracy: An Inside Story of Power, Greed, Drugs and Murder 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.

Bluegrass Conspiracy is full of excitement. I could not believe that our Kentucky law enforcement officials were involved in such criminal activity, including murder and selling drugs. This was the beginning of a line drawn between the Kentucky State Police and the Lexington Police Department that has kept the KSP from policing Fayette County.

Ms. Denton was a former tv news reporter @ WKYT TV 27. This book chronicles the greed, power corruption that started with crooked Lexington KY Policemen and reached as high as Governor John Y. Brown Jr's office. Good read a real crime story about the good 'ole boys in late 70's & early 80's Kentucky.
