About the Book

Suitcases of money . . . boxes of cocaine . . . undercover agents . . . wiretaps . . . government leaks . . . crooked agents . . . and grandmas? For most of their lives the four middle-aged women had never violated the law. But cocaine and its false promise of excitement and riches drew them in, one by one, into a multi-million-dollar money laundering and cocaine trafficking scheme. Cocaine also ensnared a nationally known jeans designer and sent him plummeting on a path toward personal destruction. Perhaps most disturbing of all, cocaine's profits lured agents from two different federal agencies--men sworn to investigate and bring cocaine traffickers to justice--to violate their oaths and engage in significant criminal acts. This is the true but incredible story of the Grandma Mafia.
