Kilo: Inside the Deadliest Cocaine Cartels is a thrilling journey through the cocaine industry, meeting the men and women who live and die in the drug war. This nonfiction book follows one kilo of cocaine from its origins deep in Colombia's jungles through the hands of cocaine-producers, killers for hire, drug capos and their lovers, all on it's way to satisfy the demand of consumers in Europe and the USA. There is more cocaine than ever before and gangsters are making fortunes. It's a business fueled by greed, sex and corruption; billions are to be made and death and betrayal are always around the next corner. From fields in Colombia's badlands, to slums that serve as training grounds for the cartels to the vast Pacific Ocean where narco-subs carry tons of cocaine, Kilo asks can cocaine ever be stopped while the wealthiest countries keep buying it?
