Don’t take our word for it. Take the word of NYT Best Selling author Howie Carr recommending this book.

Flight of the Westwind is a fascinating memoir of one of the most decorated agent’s career in federal law enforcement—from the cocaine madness of the Miami Vice-Whitey Bulger era all the way to the War on Terror. Highly Recommended”


Protentis details the redemption flight of a Decorated and Heroic Vietnam War era fighter pilot, who survives a gun battle on a landing strip in Jamaica and is convicted of drug smuggling and eventually redeems his integrity with a harrowing flight in a jet aircraft from Medellin, Colombia to New York with nearly a ton of cocaine. Protentis describes his interactions with Rogue FBI agent John Connolly, AUSA’s Robert Mueller, John Durham and US Attorney Rudy Giuliani on a journey to the largest seizure of cocaine from a private airplane in US History.
