A disturbing inside look at the Muslim Mafia, the organized crime syndicate that controls global opiate production and traffickinga story of corruption, terrorism, greed, and human sufferingfrom a veteran U.S. State Department official and former senior adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry

Today, a powerful crime organization thrives, one that may exert even more influence than the Italian Mafias fabled Five Families. Based primarily in Afghanistan and Pakistan, this other Mafia is responsible for the majority of the worlds heroin production and distribution, estimated to be worth thirty to fifty billion dollars annually.

In this expansive, eye-opening book, seasoned American diplomat Haroon K. Ullah draws upon his deep personal contacts and professional experience pursuing drug traffickers to examine the global struggle between Western law enforcement and this Muslim drug cartel. He reveals how, for years, the global heroin trade has been controlled by a handful of powerful Pakistani and Afghan families. These drug lords, in collusion with corrupt government officials and a newly resurgent Taliban, partner with a large trafficking and distribution syndicate to move vast quantities of poppy seed pods to processing labs in Afghanistan and Pakistan. These labs then produce the heroin and opium that is shipped to Karachi and distributed to markets in Europe and North Americaand on to the streets of cities and small towns, helping to fuel the opioid crisis ravaging millions of lives. The money generated from these drugs pays for the terrorists attacking soldiers and civilians worldwide.

Moving from the poppy fields of Helmand Province, Kabul, and Karachi to London and New York, The House of Heroin interweaves facts and insights with numerous powerful stories from Ullahs time in the State Department. The result is a fascinating, informed, and personal narrative of the modern drug tradefrom poppy cultivation in the Middle East to small communities across the United States.
