Abstract:

Travels the globe to get an insider's view of some of the most active, dangerous and diabolical criminal syndicates in existence. Each program focuses on a different region, examining the conditions that helped create these groups, talking to law enforcement specialists about how they are being fought, and relating true stories of famous cases. Sicily: long the gold standard for organized crime, the Sicilian Mafia has suffered setbacks in recent years. Russia: the breakup of the Soviet Union paved the way for a new breed of ruthless criminals. Colombia: the infamous Cartels long dominated crime in this nation, but even their dissolution could not stop the flow of drugs and money. China: see how the "Snake Heads" specialize in human traffic, smuggling people out of China. India: see how India's most famous criminal group was inspired by spirituality, and examine the dark underbelly of "Bollywood."
