I am the Market : How to Smuggle Cocaine by the Ton and Live Happily Paperback
This is the cocaine trade. This is how it's done: with hard work and a good system.
With coca made into cubes, dissolved in liquid, hidden in marble blocks or inside electric cable.
With willing mules swallowing drugs in ovules (they'll be arrested - this is part of the system).
With shipments measured in tons. With money in cash, always. And these are the risks: police dogs, scanners, customs, infiltrators - And if you do it right, it will make you rich. And if you don't, you'll spend your life in jail. A bestseller in Italy, this is the first-hand guide to living well on the wrong side of the law.
Luca Rastello gets the story of the market straight from a convicted smuggler: the true, unbelievable story of an illegal trade that supports economies and destroys lives, and the war on drugs that makes it all possible.
