Publisher's Summary

Usually the preserve of sensationalist reporting in the tabloid press, organised crime has seeped into our lives in so many ways and often without our knowledge.

This consistently riveting account unveils the nature of crime in today's world but it also offers profound insights into the pitfalls of a globalisation where the rules dividing the legal from the illegal are often far from clear. McMafia unpicks the nexus of crime, politics and money worldwide which have become entangled and interdependent in entirely novel forms since the 1980s. It argues that conventional policing methods are no longer appropriate to deal with a problem whose roots lie in global poverty and the ever widening divisions between rich and poor.

Great book

I would highly recommend this book to those who wish to know how the REAL world works

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have added a story into it to make it more interesting... ahh it's been done!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The transference of drugs and how the criminals of the world work as one joint network, something any government would do well to learn from.
