Cocaine is the world's most notorious narcotic. It underpins a vast, multi-billion pound underworld with a dark and deadly side. But who really are the shadowy people behind this chilling network? The cocoa farmers, the jungle sweat-shop workers, the smugglers, the suppliers, and, ultimately, the dealers who provide for the world's hundreds of millions of users. Cocaine Confidential goes inside the lives of all these characters to reveal their stories for the first time. Along the way you'll go inside a cocaine jail, meet hitmen, terror suspects, crooked politicians, bankers, coke barons, mules, hardened traffickers and corrupt cops as the truth is unravelled in a roller coaster ride through the secret world of Cocaine Confidential.
