Publisher's Summary

From the acclaimed author of best sellers 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 white-knuckle thriller - the true story of a manhunt code-named Operation Playboy.

great story, narration could be better

great story of drug trafficing and the investigation around catching them. story is made from compilations of interviews from many involved. narration leaves a lot to be desired
