Publisher's Summary

Black Market Billions blows the lid off the world's fastest-growing illicit industry: organized retail crime. Hitha Prabhakar reveals how criminals with ties to terrorist groups around the world are committing huge product thefts, and using the profits to fund terrorist acts. Prabhakar connects the dots and follows the money - from consumers dying for a deal to terrorist cells eager to do the killing.

Critic Reviews

"[I]lluminates how organized retail crime (ORC) thrives amid a recessive economy as penny-pinching consumers turn to cheaper ways of purchasing everything from luxury items to prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Prabhakar's indignation is well supported by chapters on the many interlocking facets of black-market thievery.... Sharp-pencil analysis on the seemingly futile battle against retail fraud." (Kirkus Reviews Online)
