What La Generalista has to say:

“McMafia” is an excellent read. This is an insightful journey into a powerful and expansive underworld that seems to permeate our very existence, with most of us never realizing it. “McMafia” is also a sobering account of the turmoil and crime that came with the collapse of the Soviet Union, and has persisted to this day, with an insidious reach extending far beyond the former Communist empire’s borders.

This book is a must read for anyone that wants to understand just how intertwined the so-called legitimate and black markets are.

“McMafia: A Journey Through the Global Criminal Underworld” can be purchased here at Amazon.
