Book Description Headline, 1994. Hardcover / Hardback. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First edition. Hardback. In 1989, senior British police officers received an unprecedented warning from the US Drugs Enforcement Administration. Europe was to be the next target for the most addictive drug on the market, crack cocaine. They were told that unless decisive action was taken, Britain would face the same devastation that had scourged America's inner cities. Now, as the unparalleled violence of the crack trade shocks the public, the author reveals the controversial police and government response, the reach of the Yardies, the murders and tortures, the profits, the guns, and the terrible power of the drug itself. He traces crack cocaine from its sources in South America as it crosses borders and changes hands, via the Caribbean to America and Europe, where addicts beg, steal and kill to feed their habit. In investigating the crack trade, the author has travelled to South America, Jamaica, Florida and New York, interviewing dealers, gunmen, couriers, addicts and police officers. Told though the horrifying, often tragic stories of the people swept up in the crack trade, the book is as tense as a thriller and as hard-hitting and revealing as the best investigative journalism.
