Oor hierdie boek:

What is more profitable than cocaine, heroin, marijuana or guns? Illegally trafficked cigarettes . . . Reputable tobacco companies have – for decades – been complicit in cigarette smuggling. In this gripping exposé, former SARS lawyer Telita Snyckers uncovers the dark underbelly of the tobacco industry. She recounts the instances where big tobacco itself was caught redhanded and explores not only why a listed company would want to smuggle its own product, but also how it was done.

Lesers sê

‘Telita’s gripping narrative deftly slices through the spin.’

– ROB ROSE


‘The best exposé of big tobacco to date – a toxic mix of politics, state capture, double dealings, money, spies and corrupt officials.’

– JOHANN VAN LOGGERENBERG


‘A gripping exposé . . . expertly told. I couldn’t put it down.’

– PAULI VAN WYK
