A global workforce. Billions in sales. But, unlike Tesco or BP, few have heard of it. The Cartel is Britain’s biggest drugs organisation, a shadowy network stretching from the freezing, fog-banks of the Mersey to the glittering marinas of Marbella, from the coffee shops of Amsterdam to the trading floors of Canary Wharf.

Run by godfathers as rich as Branson but kept in line by a new generation of teenage killers. Here is the inside story.

If only!!!
I have never read so much ill-informed writing in my life.
If only Graham Johnson had some of his so called 'facts' right it may have made a short story to pass the time of day- but, he has not.
The News of the World NEVER paid John Merry to do as he writes in fact it just never took place.
If only Johnson had checked his factas he would have had a great book.
