A story of unrelenting, seedy brutality' - The Herald The elite police officers secretly launching Scotland's biggest ever offensive against organised crime had only one target. His name was Jamie Stevenson, but he was known as The Iceman, the biggest drugs trafficker the country has ever seen. Suspected of a string of murders - including the gangland assassination of his best friend - Stevenson's decade-long rise was built on ruthless ambition, strategic cunning and calculated, brutal violence. It left him at the head of one of Europe's biggest smuggling operations pouring tons of drugs and guns onto the streets of Scotland. "The Iceman" tells the astonishing story of Stevenson's rise and fall, offering a unique and explosive insight into Operation Folklore, the unprecedented four-year investigation that ended in his arrest. It lays bare the blood-soaked business of Scotland's most powerful crime lord and, for the first time, exposes how he made - and laundered - his dirty millions.
The ice man
This book was pretty good, it makes you think how pointless the war on drugs is. He gets a tiny sentence and gets away with possibly 500m+. As do the book it's like a Scottish version of cocky, not the most detailed book if you've read killing Pablo or drug lords.
