In Zero Zero Zero, Roberto Saviano maps the international cocaine trade. He investigates the evolution of cocaine trafficking, from Mexican drug cartels to money laundering through Wall Street and the City of London. While tracking cocaine's physical journey -- from South America to the beaches of Miami and the streets of New York, and on to Africa and throughout Europe and even further to China and India -- Saviano follows the human trail of users, victims and traffickers. First-hand stories and interviews will show how, over the last several decades, the global sale and consumption of cocaine has radically altered both black market and legitimate economies, and has impacted societies worldwide. With these stories, Saviano makes a secret world readable.
Roberto Saviano was born in Naples in 1979. He is the author of the international bestseller Gomorrah, which has sold over ten million copies and been translated into over fifty languages worldwide. The film adaptation of Gomorrah was winner of the Grand Prix of the 2008 Cannes Film Festival. He has been living under police escort protections since October 2006, following threats received from the criminal organisations that he denounced. In November 2008 Saviano was invited by the Nobel Committee in Stockholm to give a lecture on 'Freedom of Speech and Lawless Violence.'
