Drug War: The Secret History
By Peter Walsh
Both Martin and Graham feature in the book “Drug War: The Secret History” by Peter Walsh.
Drug War is a landmark modern history: the first ever full account of the United Kingdom's fight against the illegal importation of drugs. Packed with remarkable revelations and thrilling anecdotes, it tells for the first time the story of the high-level traffickers who drugged Britain, and the secretive organisation that tried to stop them: the Investigation Division of HM Customs and Excise.
The ID's elite officers waged a fifty-year battle to stem the tide of cannabis, cocaine and heroin arriving by land, air and sea, and to track, arrest and prosecute the smuggling gangs, both organised and chaotic, who turned an amateur pastime into a multi-billion-pound trade.
