Reefer Men: The Rise and Fall of a Billionaire Drug Ring Summary

Reefer Men: The Rise and Fall of a Billionaire Drug Ring by Tony Thompson

This is the story of an international group of drug smugglers, their criminal success and the hunt to bring them to justice.

There were sixteen of them, from America, Britain, Australia and Thailand, and together they were called 'The Ring'. They first began exporting marijuana in the aftermath of the Vietnam war, and over the years they smuggled vast shipments into the USA and Europe, becoming multi-millionaires in the process. In 1988, they decided to carry out one final heist that would ensure they could retire forever. However, they were intercepted by the police, and the key Ring members all had to flee to avoid being arrested. With unlimited money at their disposal and contacts in all parts of the globe, they were the ultimate fugitives. Tracking them down would call for a fifteen-year international manhunt.

Tony Thompson describes their rise, fall and eventual capture in a thrilling, fast-paced true crime adventure.
