From the internationally bestselling author of Hotel Kerobokan and co-author of Schapelle Corby's autobiography, this is the incredible inside account of Bali's hidden drug world.
"A unique, uncensored insight into a hidden world." The Chronicle
It's snowing in Bali. Among Bali's drug dealers it's the code for a huge cocaine shipment having just landed. For the men who run the country's drug empires, it's time to get rich and party hard.
Snowing in Bali is the story of the drug trafficking and dealing scene that's made Bali one of the world's most important destinations in the global distribution of narcotics. With its central location to the Asia Pacific market, its thriving tourist industry to act as cover for importation, and a culture of corruption that can easily help law enforcement turn a blind eye, Bali has long been a paradise for traffickers as well as for holiday-makers.
Kathryn Bonella, bestselling author of Hotel Kerobokan, has been given extraordinary access into the lives of some of the biggest players in Bali's drug world, both past and present. She charts their rise to incredible wealth and power, and their drug-fuelled lifestyles, filled with orgies, outrageous extravagance and surfing. But running international drug empires in Bali can also be a highly risky business, with terrible consequences for those caught and convicted.

Great book, awesome insight into the workings of the drug importation business
I couldn't put this book down. I had to keep reading to see what happened to the characters in the end
Got me in fast and something exciting on every page.
I would definitely by this product again
A well-written, easy to read and engaging account of the Bali underworld. Could've easily read it in a couple of days, however holiday adventures slowed my reading rate down a bit. It's a real pager turner and I can highly recommend it. I'm going to read the other 2 books written by the the writer after this one.
