Delve into the shadowy world of crime with this revealing exploration of the criminal underworld. Beyond the notorious crime lords and the violent realm of drug trafficking, lies a complex network of theft, fraud, and borderline legal activities. Who are the masterminds behind these operations? How do they seamlessly orchestrate crimes while remaining undetected?

In everyday life, we find plumbers, electricians, and plasterers through a simple internet search or recommendations. But in the criminal fraternity, things operate differently. Fences, who trade in stolen goods, rely on a clandestine network: one group supplies the contraband, another discreetly purchases it, no questions asked.

Imagine if this underworld also had its own ‘sub-contractors’ – skilled individuals specializing in specific illegal activities, and facilitators who connect various players in this covert market. This book takes you deep into this hidden society, shedding light on how organized crime functions with the same efficiency and connectivity as legitimate businesses.

If you’ve ever been curious about the intricacies of the criminal world and its unseen yet organized culture, this is your guide to understanding how these hidden networks operate, thrive, and evade detection.

Born a few years after the Second World War into a society that is unrecognisable today, Ed Johnson has seen and lived through the changes, which he, in part, gives as one of the reasons he decided to start writing.


His working career has been in electronics and technology; mending a computer in 1970 was a very different experience from working with them today.


He says he is lucky with his life experiences. In the 1950s, you were expected to be able to turn your hand to anything, which, again, he says, has contributed to his writing.
