Summary

The Crossing is a groundbreaking, unprecedented look inside the UK's newest and most chilling underworld. Wensley Clarkson's insider account reveals the emergence of numerous organised crime networks more powerful and violent than anything ever seen before in this country. These often foreign gangs run elaborate international systems dealing in drugs, people smuggling, prostitution and money laundering, and they have gained a huge foothold in the UK underworld thanks to The Crossing.

Since first investigating organised crime more than 30 years ago, Clarkson has witnessed enormous changes in the UK underworld. For The Crossing, he has entered the brand-new Brexit influenced criminal badlands and witnessed up close the audacious, sophisticated and far-reaching foreign gangs who threaten to paralyse post-Brexit Britain by introducing the world to a new breed of organised crime.

Mind blowing

Having lived in Essex all my life, 50 years, and being a European truck driver for 20 of those, this book is not only a frightening eye opener, it just confirms a lot of what I have ‘seen’ especially the this last 10 years. A very compelling listen, and exceptional narrating, my book of the year so far. I could probably say more, but probably best not too.....

Stunning expose into a world I didn't know existed

fascinating and eye opening, what a mess we are in! and that is before Brexit! amazing narration ...the best I've ever experienced in an audiobook, how we moved seemlessly between characters and accents is superb and really takes you with him. Highly recommended
