Publisher's Summary

Among Bali's drug dealers it's the 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. It's snowing in Bali.
Snowing in Bali is the story of the 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 to 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, best-selling author of Hotel Kerobokan, has been given extraordinary access into the lives of some of the biggest players in Bali's drug world, both past and present. She charts their rise to incredible wealth and power, and their drug-fuelled lifestyles, filled with orgies, outrageous extravagance and surfing. But running international drug empires in Bali can also be a highly risky business, with terrible consequences for those caught and convicted.
From the highs of multi-million dollar deals to the desperate lows of death row in an Indonesian high security jail, Snowing in Bali is a unique, uncensored insight into a hidden world.

Oversensationalized

Great narration. Enjoyed the book. Neat to get the scoop, but not sure about the way the guys were portrayed. Seems the author was humanizing them a bit too much. Feel like there has to be more to the story. The excitement of the "game" was glamorized a bit too much for my taste. Would recommend it! ...just proceed with some cognitive distance and healthy skepticism.

Page-turner ... so to speak

I hated to press pause. This book is fantastic. You become so interested in the lives of the subjects, not necessarily hoping that they'll succeed in their illegal activities but hoping that they will get out the game before they die.
