Local Medford book author at Malaprop's

BlogAsheville's Cecil Bothwell has written a book about the Bobby Medford case. He'll appear at Malaprop's on Nov. 20 at 7 p.m. to sign and speak.

Cross-posted from Bothwell's Blog:

In a region with a reputation for crooked lawmen, Bobby Medford is that
rare exception: caught and convicted. He was dealt a fifteen year sentence in
the federal prison system for conspiracy, extortion, money laundering, mail
fraud and illegal gambling. But that’s just part of his story. Bounty hunter,
debt collector and addict, he left behind a trail strewn with guns, drugs,
bodies and cash. Pure Bunkum offers a reporter’s-eye view of the way public
corruption proliferates, even when “everyone knows” what’s going on, told by an
award-winning journalist with an eye for the absurd.

Go Cecil!

Without his investigative work on this case, it never would have cracked. I'm so impressed that he's gotten this book together so quickly.
