Philip Jett – The Kidnapping of “Mr. Exxon”

Philip Jett discusses one of the most fascinating, factual crime investigations since Patty Hearst. On April 29, 1992, Exxon International President Sidney J. Reso was abducted when he left for the office. No one saw or heard anything. So what happened?


Philip Jett is a former corporate attorney who represented corporations, hospitals, CEOs, and celebrities from the music, television, and sports industries. His debut nonfiction book The Death of an Heir was named one of the best true-crime stories that year by the New York Times. Jett lives in Nashville, Tennessee.
