When it was first published in the mid-seventies, Snowblind established itself as an essential piece of true crime writing.
The story of the legendary Zachary Swan, a mover in the cocaine trade in the sixties who set the standard for all who followed, Sabbag's riveting account is a compulsive insight into an underworld populated by crazy characters and riven by paranoia.
The result is an illuminating and wild book that influenced a generation of writers and smugglers.
