Roadmap to Hell: Sex, Drugs and Guns on the Mafia Coast 



"The book, built on interviews with many participants, is well-reported and consistently heartbreaking.... a useful work of advocacy, calling attention to a terrible traffic in human misery." -- Kirkus Reviews

"A profound, appalling portrait of a country overwhelmed by crime." --Tobias Jones, author The Dark Heart of Italy

"Barbie Latza Nadeau takes you on an exhilarating ride through Italy's dark underbelly ... a grimy world populated by Nigerian drug lords, Italian mafiosi, dirty cops and voodoo doctors. An incredibly thorough, alarming and highly readable piece of investigative journalism."
--Tina Brown, award-winning writer and editor

'The sex-trafficking of tens of thousands of Nigerian young women to Italy is a shamefully under-reported story that disgraces the authorities in both those countries. Barbie Latza Nadeau reveals the dirty truth with flair, forensic insight, and, above all, great empathy for the victims of this trade... Her tale of suffering and injustice in Italy is an uncomfortable but vital read.' - Barnaby Phillips, Former BBC correspondent in Nigeria

'A powerful exposé of organised crime along Italy’s picturesque Amalfi Coast. The Daily Beast’s Rome correspondent takes on gun runners, Nigerian gangs and willfully negligent police as she chronicles the forced criminality of sex-trafficked women and drug mules – and the efforts of nuns to rescue them. Unnerving stuff.' - Tatler

‘Darker than Helene Stapinski's Murder in Matera, this timely and troubling exposé should appeal to a similar audience willing to embrace an unromanticized view of Italian life.’ -Library Journal

"Barbie Latza Nadeau uncovers a web of criminal activity in Italy, involving thousands of refugees and migrants who are lured into the underworld and forced to become sex slaves, drug mules, or weapon smugglers."  - Publishers Weekly

  "Roadmap to Hell is a crusading piece of journalism that exposes the human face of Italy’s growing sex-slavery industry. This is a heart-wrenching volume that nevertheless manages to be clear-eyed about the nature of drug addiction, superstition, and illicit practices." -Forward Reviews
