Mark Fisher – The Guardian

‘He gives us a masterclass in cybercrime, the dark web. You emerge…feeling as if you see 2018 more clearly now.’

Dominic Maxwell – The Times

‘A world authority on global organised crime’ The Guardian, join award-winning author and journalist Misha Glenny in this illuminating exploration of his ground-breaking international best-selling book McMafia.

Now a critically acclaimed BBC TV series, don’t miss this rare opportunity to discover what it took to bring an extraordinary cast of characters to life on the small screen as executive producer.

After years of courageously investigating and reporting on the most dangerous and sophisticated crime networks around the world, Glenny takes us on a tour through the dark depths of world capitalism and corrupt intelligence agencies to explain what’s really happening behind the headlines – from Russian gangsters and Latin American cartel leaders to dodgy hedge funders and cyber hackers.

Frightening, funny and enlightening; a powerful exposé that’s not to be missed!

Seriously organised crime, “for anyone who wants to understand the 21st Century” (Emma Thompson).
