"From the fields of Pakistan through the docks of Hamburg to the halls of London's power elite, this epic drama crosses continents and cultures to portray the dark and dangerous world of international drug smuggling. The intersecting stories of vivid characters-- a British minister with a drug-addicted daughter, the wife of a German businessman whose husband is arrested for drug trafficking, and a Pakistani farmer struggling to live off his land-- spin a powerful web of intrigue and emotion"--AcornMedia WWW page.
