The Marseille Connection #BookTober #ComingSoon

About The Book:
The Marseille Connection, written by renowned attorney and Yale-educated historical expert Kenneth Foard McCallion, tells the true story of Patricia Richardson, a gorgeous young woman who started life as a dirt-poor orphan in the French Caribbean island of St. Martin before rising through the ranks of an international Marseille-based drug cartel, Unione Corse, to become part of the inner circle of leadership in the organization. For several decades in the second half of the twentieth century, under Richardson’s leadership, Unione Corse had a virtual monopoly on the distribution of heroin in the United States and elsewhere around the world. Patricia and her well-heeled mobster associates provided much of the illegal financing for President Richard Nixon’s successful presidential campaign in 1968 and outsmarted every U.S. law enforcement and Congressional investigation that sought to expose her. Based on years of painstaking research and top-secret documents and evidence The Marseille Connection reveals never-before-disclosed details of one of the most successful, yet largely unknown, criminal organizations of the 20th century. Using his decades of legal knowledge and personal experience prosecuting the mob, McCallion gives a thorough examination of the fascinating life and crime of Patricia Richardson and her associates, exploring the untold backstory and little-known details of this fascinating case.
