Sea of Greed by J. Douglas McCulllough, Les Pendleton

Sea of Greed, based on the true story behind the arrest of Manuel Noriega and the invasion of Panama pursuant to Operation Just Cause.

McCullough, a former U.S. Attorney, prosecuted a sophisticated group of drug smugglers and money-launderers that had successfully gained access into Texas, North Carolina, Louisiana, Kentucky and Michigan, amassing over $50,000,000 which was placed in Panamanian banks with Noriega's assistance. The investigation and apprehension of these smugglers eventually led to the exposure of Noriega as a drug lord and money launderer despite the fact that on occasion he provided intelligence to the CIA and DEA and received an award from President Reagan. A conspiracy that spanned this hemisphere, stretching from Colombia to the Grand Caymans, Jamaica and the United States, involved were local politicians, businessmen, celebrities and entertainment agents as well as Noriega and members of Colombian drug cartels. This is the only occasion where a head of state has been prosecuted in a federal court like any other criminal.
