From the internationally bestselling author of Hotel Kerobokan and co-author of Schapelle Corby's autobiography, this is the incredible inside account of Bali's hidden drug world.

"a unique, uncensored insight into a hidden world." The Chronicle

It's snowing in Bali. Among Bali's drug dealers it's the code for a huge cocaine shipment having just landed. For the men who run the country's drug empires, it's time to get rich and party hard.

Snowing in Bali is the story of the drug trafficking and dealing scene that's made Bali one of the world's most important destinations in the global distribution of narcotics. With its central location to the Asia Pacific market, its thriving tourist industry to act as cover for importation, and a culture of corruption that can easily help law enforcement turn a blind eye, Bali has long been a paradise for traffickers as well as for holiday-makers.

Kathryn Bonella, bestselling author of Hotel Kerobokan, has been given extraordinary access into the lives of some of the biggest players in Bali's drug world, both past and present. She charts their rise to incredible wealth and power, and their drug-fuelled lifestyles, filled with orgies, outrageous extravagance and surfing. But running international drug empires in Bali can also be a highly risky business, with terrible consequences for those caught and convicted.

My favourite book
February 26th, 2014
Have a hard copy of this and i enjoyed reading it a lot. As i have ever visited Bali and i have ever been to or passed by a few places mentioned in the book ( such as N**** Hotel, K* D* T*, etc). I can picture well the place and imagining the story happening in my head. Love how the book has some pictures too. This book opened my mind and can see the life of drug traffickers. And also happy how Rafael ( a character in the book ) chose to stop doing the business.

A real eye opener as to what goes on behind the scenes in what has always appeared to be a relaxed tropical paradise - and a warning to those who think it is a very relaxed party paradise!

Extremely descriptive and fast paced, this unbelievable tale reads like an action thriller with sex drugs and jetsetting. Grips you till the end!
