Event Navigation

Join us as best-selling author Ron Peterson, Jr. discusses his new novel, Chasing the Squirrel: The Pursuit of Notorious Drug Smuggler Wally Thrasher. This is the true story of drug smuggler Wally Thrasher, whose investigation led to the biggest drug bust in Mid-Atlantic United States history in 1986. Thrasher was recently profiled on “America’s Most Wanted” as US Marshals chased leads around the globe in his pursuit.
The film rights for the book were recently acquired and are in development for a documentary series. During our virtual event, we will be joined by Wally’s son Montana Thrasher.
