It started with a few sacks of opium thrown into the back of a Cessna on a dirt strip high in the mountains of Laos.

Thirty years later it was one kilo bricks of refined white powder hidden on trawlers and commercial airliners, a billion dollar industry that spanned the globe.

Baptiste Croce had only ever wanted to make his fortune, marry the boss’s girl and get out. If only life were that easy.

The Opium series charts the story of one man’s rise to the very pinnacle of the burgeoning drug trade in south east Asia, from the jungles of the Golden Triangle to the opium dens of sixties Hong Kong, from war time Saigon to the secret CIA airfields of northern Laos, from the brutal prisons of Bangkok to the triad gang wars of San Francisco’s Chinatown.

The Opium series is a spectacular epic spanning two continents and thirty years, a tale of passion and greed that will leave you breathless to its final, apocalyptic conclusion in a typhoon-battered Hong Kong.

We have every respect for persons entertaining strict religious principles, but we fear that very godly people are not suited to the drug trade. – James Matheson co-founder of Jardine Matheson.
