Publisher's Summary

The Cocaine industry is worth billions of dollars a year to the drug cartels who spread their evil seed across Western society. Its usage causes incalculable misery, poverty and death. Slowly, gradually, inexorably it is is a blight that must be stopped. One man, Paul Devereaux, intellectual, dedicated, utterly ruthless, and ex-CIA special ops, is given what seems like an impossible task. At his disposal, anything he wants - men, resources, money. He will not stop until he has completed his mission. Up to now, the drug trade has been used to world governments attempting to prevent them plying their trade. But up to now, those governments have played by the rules. That is about to change. The rules no longer apply... and a dirty war is about to get a whole lot dirtier....


What the Critics Say

"A No-nonsense parable about how much collateral damage states will accept to end evil…there is a twist in the tale that leaves you wondering how much is fiction and how much is fact. It is narrated with hard-hitting conviction by Robert Powell and I simply couldn’t stop listening to it..." (Christina Hardyment, The Times)
