Returning from a vacation trip to Mexico, Little Rock attorney Roger Glasgow and his wife got the surprise of their lives when they were stopped at the border crossing. Guards ordered them out of their car and began to remove the back seat. What followed was a long nightmare of political intrigue and subterfuge that led all the way back to Arkansas and its capital city.

While pursuing a race for district prosecutor in the 1970s, Glasgow had run afoul of the local political machine. The machine later decided to teach Glasgow a lesson even though he’d lost the race. Down and Dirty Down South is Glasgow’s story of how he attempted to clear his name and also track down the people who had set him up for charges of smuggling illegal drugs into the United States.

Roger Glasgow was raised on a small farm near Nashville, Arkansas, and attended Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia and the University of Arkansas School of Law in Fayetteville. A former deputy attorney general, he enjoyed a successful career of more than forty years with the Little Rock firm Wright, Lindsey & Jennings. He now resides in Colorado.
