Synopsis

From the Acclaimed Author of Bestseller Hotel Kerobokan and Snowing in Bali

Sex. Drugs. Danger. Death.

This is the adrenaline-pumping story of the world's most audacious drug runners and the police hunt, 'Operation Playboy', to track them down.

These drug-running playboys travel the globe: they ski in Europe, surf in Bali, hook up with celebrity models and live in five-star hotels. They are 24/7 party boys with brass balls, steely nerves and reckless ambitions. They pay for their high-risk, hedonistic lifestyle by trafficking cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana on international flights and through the world's biggest airports.

But to ride the wave you have to roll the dice. And in this game a bust means prison - or even a firing squad. A Brazilian cop is watching closely, determined to close the net. With a small team, he battles corrupt colleagues and bent judges to learn the secrets of the playboys and bring about their downfall.

Celebrated true-crime writer and journalist Kathryn Bonella has travelled the world to collect first-person testimony from an international network of mules and their bosses, as well as from the elite cops who are hot on their trail.

The result is a page-turning, white-knuckle thriller - the true story of a manhunt codenamed Operation Playboy.

"[A] graphic insight into the hidden world of Bali's top western cocaine bosses... With unprecedented access into their lives author Kathryn Bonella charts their rise to incredible wealth and power... [and] also follows many to the depths of hell when they are busted." Tracks on Snowing in Bali

"... an insightful and sharply ovbserved account of life inside Indonesia's most notorious prison. Bonella casts a cool journalistic eye over some horrific events..." Sun Herald on Hotel Kerobokan

"Bonella's portrayal of the jail... will make readers flinch with its graphic descriptions of violence and debauchery taking place under the eyes of bent guards." South China Morning Post on Hotel Kerobokan
