In 2008, Misha Glenny, journalist and reporter, wrote a thrilling investigation of international organised crime, called McMafia. It won prizes, uncovered untold depth and detail of mafia cells the world over and, more than anything, scared its readers witless with its stories of money-laundering, trafficking and violence happening under our noses. Little wonder, then, that the writing team behind Drive saw the potential for an electrifying fictional TV series based on the stories Glenny recounts. Keep an eye out in January for what promises to be a true mob saga for the modern world.
