From sex slaves to drug mules, the Daily Beast’s Rome Bureau Chief uncovers a terrifying and intricate web of criminal activity right on Europe’s doorstep.

Caught between Camorra gunrunners selling to ISIS and Nigerian drug gangs along Italy’s picturesque coast, each year thousands of refugees and migrants are lured into their underworld, forced to become sex slaves, drug mules, or weapon smugglers. In this powerful exposé, investigative journalist Barbie Latza Nadeau follows the weapons trail, meets the trafficked women trapped by black magic, the brave nuns who try to save them, and the Italian police who turn a blind eye as the most urgent issues facing Europe play out in broad daylight.

    " Heart breaking, to hear of these ladies experiences, What is so shocking is that it is so open on the streets? It seems this is happening all over the world, what is so shocking is that women are tricking young women into this slavery!! To take some young person’s trust and venerability and turn them in to nothing more than an object for a bunch of ignorant self indulgent men with wife’s, sisters and mother’s, speaks for itself really, who really should be ashamed of their behaviour! I can understand a man going to a working woman who has chosen that line of work, but to knowing seek out a traffic Victim makes me glad I don’t have a daughter! It has really made me look at my fellow Italians in a very different light indeed. A very explicit and well documented book. "
