The shocking true story of the world's most notorious online drug market.
It was the "eBay of drugs", a multi-billion dollar empire. And behind its heart of darkness was the FBI's Most Wanted Man, a mysterious crime czar dubbed "Dread Pirate Roberts". SILKROAD.COM lay at the heart of 'the Dark Web' - a parallel universe of porn, guns, assassins and drugs. Lots of drugs. With the click of a button LSD, heroin, meth, coke, any illegal drug imaginable, would wing its way by regular post to any dealer or user in the world. How was this email-order drug cartel even possible? And who was the mastermind all its low roads led to? This is the incredible true story of Silk Road's rise and fall, told with unparalleled access to the main players - including alleged founder and kingpin Dread Pirate Roberts himself - by lawyer and investigative journalist Eileen Ormsby. A stunning crime story with a truth that explodes off the page.
Eileen Ormsby is a former lawyer turned journalist. She lives in Melbourne.
