NOW A MAJOR SKY ATLANTIC SERIES

From the international bestselling author of Gomorrah, this searing exposé reveals how dirty money and the drug trade are at the heart of our lives, our economy, and our world

In many countries, 'zero zero' or double zero flour is the finest, best flour on the market. Among narco-traffickers, then, 'zero zero zero' is the nickname for the very purest, highest quality grade of cocaine. From Mexican cartels to Milanese financiers, Guatemalan mercenaries to Ukrainian warlords, Calabrian traffickers to the traders in Wall Street and London who wash the money clean, this is an unforgettable story that goes around the globe and through every level of society to show the extent to which the drug trade affects us all.

Weaving together stories, interviews, wiretaps and his own experience of the criminal underworld, Saviano reveals an international narco-state, which, in the wake of the financial crisis, is now the pillar of our global economy. It is the perfect synthesis of modern capitalism, where everything is for the taking - and all is consumed, ruined and destroyed.

Recenzii

The most important book of the year ... Here it is, laid bare: cartel as corporation, corporation as cartel; cocaine as pure capitalism ... Saviano realises the brutal truth: that to understand narco-traffic is to understand the modern world ... it is revolutionary
Impassioned . . . a literary style that switches from vivid descriptions of human depravity to a philosophical consideration of the meaning of violence in the modern world.
Vivid . . . lands a resounding thump to the solar plexus
A powerful work of reportage . . . it goes to the heart of the financial sector's dependence on drug capital and its depredations
After reading Saviano, it becomes impossible to see Italy, and the global market, in the same way again.
Saviano is a blazingly vivid and courageous writer.
Saviano has an astonishing ability to write luminously yet subtly about terrible things.
A national hero.
Brave and passionate
Saviano should be commended for his bravery, and supported by all who share his revulsion.
