This book unfolds the inside story of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International. It traces the growth of BCCI into one of the world’s most controversial banks with assets of more than $ 20 billion and its alleged involvement in bribery, corruption, money laundering, gum running, drug smuggling, terrorism and other unsavoury transnational activities.
The dark side of the world of finance comes into sharp focus, particularly its involvement with intelligence agencies, and the sharp practices indulged in to enrich the coffers of those who have built up enough political connection to ensure their immunity.
The book exposes the BCCI as the largest criminal corporate enterprise in modern history with a secret banking network that served the underworld of organized crimes
