More About This Title Young Blood


In The Cartel, bestselling true-crime author Graham Johnson revealed how Britain’s biggest drugs syndicate grew from a one-man band founded by a used-car salesman to become a global corporation employing thousands of criminals. In this jaw-dropping sequel, Johnson covers the Cartel's story from 2003 to the present day, reporting how the godfathers at the top of the hierarchy are losing their power to the street gangs supposedly at the bottom of the pile. He reveals how the brutal assassination of drug baron Colin "King Cocaine" Smith in 2007 by a group of young bucks triggered the rise of the foot soldier and heralded a series of events that has had devastating consequences for the whole of society. Johnson exposes the bitter struggle that has spread throughout Europe as various factions battle to fill the power vacuum to sieze control of the most lucrative crime syndicate in British history.
