'An insightful and explosive exposé' - Stephen Breen, author of The Cartel and The HitmenIreland's top crime journalist traces the flood of cocaine into Ireland and those behind its unprecedented growth. From the first smugglers and their adventures on the high seas to the modern-day Instagram-loving gangsters, COCAINE COWBOYS weaves an intricate tale where high society and the criminal underworld collide. 

From Ireland's first cocaine lord and his attempts to establish a direct route from Miami to Dublin to the modern-day violence that led to the brutal dismemberment of teenager Keane Mulready Woods, the book will follow the stories and the increasing chaos that has engulfed those desperate for a slice of this modern day gold rush. Along the way it details how cocaine has woven bonds between high society and the underworld, tracing the deal that killed the model Katy French and detailing how the Kinahan Cartel and Ireland's one time richest and most influential family joined forces to wash dirty money. COCAINE COWBOYS is the definitive tale of the rise of Colombia's most famous export to become the drug of a nation.
