From the Back Cover
The ex-public schoolboy supplying coke to the rich and famous of Barbados. The Eastern European gangster, whose vicious feuds are staining the cocaine underworld with blood. The English ex-international footballer, who doesn't have a choice. The hitman out to pull off the perfect job.
These are just some of the extraordinary characters who make up the shadowy and murderous criminal fraternity engaged in trading one of the most addictive narcotics known to man. In Cocaine Confidential Wensley Clarkson tells their stories, along with those of the Central American coca farmers struggling to make a living, the dealers who sell to celebrities, politicians and royalty alike, and the Mexican cartels machine-gunning anyone foolish enough to get in their way.
