When best friends become arch enemies - it's murder! In March 2000, police raided a central Dublin hotel and uncovered a GBP1.7 million drug-mixing factory. Of the three men arrested at the scene, just two were charged. The third, Declan Gavin, was labelled a 'rat'. Within eighteen months he was dead, and a deadly gangland feud was born. Over the course of ten years, sixteen young men have been brutally murdered in tit-for-tat killings.
"Cocaine Wars" chronicles the shocking story from the growth of the gang under the tutelage of notorious criminals John Gilligan and Martin 'The Viper' Foley, to the brutal way in which they established themselves as Dublin's most feared drugs mob. For the first time, the stories behind the feud are revealed: the mother who has lost two sons to the relentless violence, the criminal who orchestrates murders from inside his prison cell, and the women who remain loyal to the ruthless gangsters.

Curtis Warren is an underworld legend, the Liverpool scally who took the methods of the street-corner drug pusher and elevated them to an art form. He forged direct links with the cocaine cartels of Colombia, the heroin godfathers of Turkey, the cannabis growers of Morocco and the ecstasy labs of Holland and Eastern Europe. His drugs went around the world, from the clubs of Manchester and Glasgow to the beaches of Sydney, Australia.
His underlings called him the "Cocky Watchman". His pursuers called him "Target One".
COCKY is a shocking insight into modern organised crime and a vivid account of the workings of the international drugs trade.
