This is the fascinating, true story of crime king Paul Leroux. Born in Bulawayo, his adoptive family moved to Krugersdorp when he was twelve-years-old. He was a reclusive teen, and was obsessed with computer games. When he was 16 years-old he dropped out of school and moved to the UK, where he worked as a programmer. He started an online prescription drug company that funded the move into large-scale crime operations such as gold smuggling, arms and drug trafficking and money-laundering. He operated from Manila, Hong Kong, Columbia, Africa and Brazil. He employed hitmen and soldiers as guards and he compartmentalised and masterminded this sprawling empire. Investigative reporter Evan Ratliff spent four years piecing the evidence together and has worked closely with police agencies in various countries, and this compelling book is the result.
