Publisher Description


'It's snowing in Bali.' Among Bali's drug dealers, this is the secret code for a huge cocaine shipment having just landed. For the men who run the country's drug empires, it's time to get rich and party hard.

Snowing in Bali is the true crime story of the organised drug trafficking and dealing scene that's made Bali one of the world's most important destinations in the global distribution of narcotics. With its central location in the Asia Pacific market, its thriving tourist industry to act as cover for importation, and a culture of corruption that can easily help law enforcement turn a blind eye, Bali has long been a paradise for traffickers as well as for holiday-makers.

Kathryn Bonella, bestselling true crime author of Hotel Kerobokan and Operation Playboy, has been given extraordinary access into the lives of some of the biggest players in Bali's mafia-like drug world, both past and present. In this international true crime biography, she charts their rise to incredible wealth and power and their drug-fuelled lifestyles, filled with orgies, outrageous extravagance and surfing. But running international criminal drug empires in Bali can also be a highly risky business, with terrible consequences for those caught and convicted.

If you love true crime or organised crime thrillers, drug bust stories, espionage, murder and mayhem, mafia films, international mystery and crime, heists and biographies then this is the true crime biography for you...

From the internationally bestselling author of Hotel Kerobokan and Operation Playboy and co-author of Schapelle Corby's autobiography, this is the incredible, true life inside account of Bali's hidden drug world.

Perfect for fans of true crime stories and authors like Rusty Young, James Phelps, Chopper Read and Underbelly.

A fascinating insight into the alluring Bali drug scene

I loved this book! Bonella's previous title, Hotel Kerobokan, was fascinating for the dark, seedy underworld of the jail it revealed. Snowing in Bali is just as mesmerising through its contrast of the drug underworld with the millionaire-playboy lifestyle. Dark yet flash & fun at the same time.

The main star you follow is Rafael - the most charismatic drug dealer you're likely to come across, and his charm really comes through the page. I really like the guy and wish him all the best for the future. You cheer for him the whole way through and breathe a few heavy sighs of relief!

It features many others from the Bali drug scene (dealers, horses, users and more) - some alluring, some horrible - all terrific to read about. The book has a wonderful mix of stories, some interesting fates tied together, and a great expose on a world so far removed from many of us.

Addictive & Captivating

This is my very first iBook & WOW, what a way to start my library. This is a top quality read & is extremely difficult to put down. The author (Kathryn Bonella) has an incredible ability to connect with the reader & "Snowing In Bali" is extremely captivating. This is a book that grabs the reader's attention from the very 1st sentence & takes you on a journey of a world that one could never have imagined to exist. A world that is in stark contrast to the beautiful paradise in which it is set.

Very hard to put down

After reading Hotel K I thought I'd never read a better book, then came "Snowing in Bali". WOW!! I could not put this book down, not to mention the time spent googling information and photos.

As a very seasoned traveller to Bali i could really picture myself in most places talked about in the book.

A very powerful book as are all of Kathryn's and definately a "must read".

Do yourself a favour, buy this book today, you will not regret it.
