About this book:

Warning. Smoking kills. It also corrupts law enforcement and eviscerates state institutions. Join SA’s former top tax sleuth Johann van Loggerenberg in a wild ride through the double-dealing world of tobacco’s colourful kingpins and ruthless corporates. This is the tale of a few good men and women who dared to hold to account a billion-dollar international industry rife with private spy networks, tax evasion, collusion and corruption.
