The original GANGLAND BRITAIN was conceived and written at a time when organised crime in the UK was still in its infancy. Eight years on the picture has changed dramatically. Organised crime is now the country's third biggest industry. The number of gangland murders, shootings and kidnappings, along with the levels of drug trafficking, people smuggling and money laundering, have all experienced phenomenal growth.

The day-to-day impact of organised crime on our lives has never been greater. In GANGS, award-winning author Tony Thompson takes us on a gripping journey into the underworld. From Triad human traffickers in Dover and ecstasy factor owners in Liverpool, to Albanian vice barons in London and gun-toting teenage crack dealers in Birmingham, GANGS reveals the inside story of contemporary organised crime.… (més)

A loosely-knit group of smugglers, mainly from the U.S., U.K., Australia, imported over a billion dollars’ worth of Thai marijuana to the U.S. from the 1970s through the 1990s. Known as “The Ring,” they started as a small group of friends in California and expanded over the years until they were bringing in up to 42 ton loads in specially outfitted ships.

This is a thoroughly researched book that covers a lot of ground and time. From the U.S. to Thailand, Europe and other parts of the world, Tony Thompson tells of the growing, transporting, selling, successes and failures. Eventually the stories turn to the law enforcement efforts against the group, the conflicts over money and deals gone bad, and the arrests, eventual cooperation and many group members going on the run.

A fast moving book that’s even more interesting for being true. ( )

fascinating, but at the same time chilling. Well worth the read.

A great piece of journalism. Covers all aspects of organised crime in Britain today, very well written and researched. Quite a scary read, actually.
