Snowing in Bali

KYLE AND JACKIE O interview Kathryn Bonella

 

Kathryn Bonella, bestselling author of  Hotel Kerobokan / Hotel K and Operation Playboy,  has been given extraordinary access into the lives of some of the biggest players in Bali’s drug underworld.

She charts their rise to incredible wealth and power and shows their glamorous drug-fuelled lifestyles of orgies, parties and surfing.

But there’s a dark side and a lot of risk to running a drug business from Bali.

Snowing in Bali shows the dangerous dark underworld of Bali from gangs to police corruption, and the draconian penalties for drugs.

Two Brazilian surfers interviewed for the book were executed by firing squad.

But this life and death risk has not served as a deterrent. Surfers keep carrying bags of drugs for the bosses to fund their playboy surfing lifestyles.
