Download and read online The Cartel in PDF and EPUB The definitive account of the rise of the Kinahan gang and the deadly feud that has shocked the nation. He is one of Ireland's most successful CEOs, running a global multinational with operations on every continent and a turnover in the billions. However, Christy Kinahan will never be fêted in the financial press. For his business - drugs, guns, money-laundering, murder - also makes him Ireland's leading criminal. While Kinahan kept a low profile as he grew his empire, by the time his crime cartel shot to public attention in 2010 it was known to European police forces for over a decade. In that year police raided members' homes and premises in Spain, Ireland the UK. By then Kinahan and his sons Daniel and Christopher Jr were already among the richest men in Europe, with an estimated joint worth of €750m. However, events in February 2016 made Kinahan a household name. A daring and deadly gun attack in a suburban Dublin hotel - an attack targeting Daniel Kinahan (who escaped) - stunned the public and exposed the depth of enmity between the Kinahans and the family and associates of the veteran Dublin criminal, Gerry Hutch. Despite an intense garda crack-down on the gangsters' activities, the body count continues to rise. The Cartel gives behind-the-scenes story of that initial Spanish-led raid on the Kinahans. The authors have had exclusive access to the wiretaps that tracked the cartel for two years and talked to key officers who investigated them. They expose the criminal clan's aims and actions - in members' own words - and reveal the surprising truths behind how they built their empire. And The Cartel brings the story bang up-to-date to explain the origins of and fall-out from the feud with the Hutches, one of the most violent and vicious Ireland has ever known - and one that could be the undoing of the Kinahans. The authors' combined depth of knowledge - Stephen Breen has been a crime correspondent for over 15 years and in addition to writing about crime for over a decade, Owen Conlon is a fluent Spanish speaker - has culminated in a detailed and gripping account of double-crossing, vengeance and murder.

But his Texas town is poor and dangerous, and it isn't long before Gabriel abandons his promising future for the allure of the Zetas, a drug cartel with roots in the Mexican military. Meanwhile, Mexican-born Detective Robert Garcia has worked hard all his life and is now struggling to raise his family in America. As violence spills over the border, Detective Garcia's pursuit of the Zetas puts him face to face with the urgent consequences of a war he sees as unwinnable.

Download and read online The Cartel Inside the Rise and Imminent Fall of the NCAA in PDF and EPUB ÒCollege athletes are not slaves,Ó writes Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Taylor Branch in ÒThe Cartel: Inside the Rise and Imminent Fall of the NCAA.Ó ÒYet to survey the sceneÑcorporations and universities enriching themselves on the backs of uncompensated young men, whose status as Ôstudent-athletesÕ deprives them of the right to due process guaranteed by the ConstitutionÑis to catch the unmistakable whiff of the plantation.Ó Branch, best known for his award-winning trilogy about the civil rights movement, ÒParting the Waters,Ó argues that decades of greed and self-interest have finally caught up with the NCAA and that the organization is poised to collapse under the weight of its own hypocrisy.Ê From Reggie Bush and Cam Newton to Ohio State and the University of Miami, itÕs been one big sports scandal after another. But the true scandal, argues Branch in this gripping, deeply reported narrative, is the parasitic structure of college sports, a business that generates billions of dollars in revenue every year yet fails to provide even workersÕ compensation for its young performers. The outrage, he writes, is Ònot that students are getting illegally paid or recruited, itÕs that two of the noble principles by which the NCAA justifies its existenceÑÔamateurismÕ and the Ôstudent-athleteÕÑare cynical hoaxes, legalistic confections propagated by the universities so they can exploit the skills and fame of young athletes. The tragedy at the heart of college sports is not that some college athletes are getting paid, but that more of them are not.Ó A portion of ÒThe CartelÓ was first published in different form in the October 2011 issue of ÒThe Atlantic,Ó and it set off a firestorm of controversy and an avalanche of praise. ÒSports IllustratedÕsÓ Frank Deford, speaking on National Public Radio, said BranchÕs story Òmay well be the most important article ever written about college sports.Ó Now the full, landmark story is available. ÒThe CartelÓ is classic investigative journalism of the highest order, by one of AmericaÕs most admired historians. ÒThe CartelÓ is published by Byliner through a partnership with ÒThe Atlantic.Ó
