About the Author
With her bestselling books making a splash internationally, Kathryn Bonella, bestselling writer of true crime kindle, paperback and audible books, has established a global fan base. Her true crime books focussing on Bali, drug smuggling, surfing and Brazil have become compulsory reading for many surfers and travellers, especially those who travel to Bali and Brazil.
Kathryn studied as a journalist at RMIT in Melbourne, moved to London to freelance for print and TV, then returned to Australia in 2000 to produce for 60 Minutes.
It was a true crime story about a 27-year-old Australian beauty school student, Schapelle Corby, being arrested at Bali international airport with kilos of marijuana in her boogie-board bag that spring-boarded Kathryn from journalist to bestselling organised crime author. After covering the story for 60 Minutes, Kathryn was offered the chance to co-write Schapelle's autobiography, Schapelle Corby: My Story, with Schapelle. It went straight to number one.
Since then Kathryn has written three more international true crime bestsellers: Hotel Kerobokan, internationally titled Hotel K, which blew the lid off the notorious Bali jail; Snowing in Bali, a true life crime thriller about the island's cocaine dealers; and Operation Playboy, the adrenaline-pumping true crime story of surfers trafficking drugs across the globe and the international police chase for the organised crime gang.
In 2019, Kathryn and Schapelle updated My Story, 13 years after releasing the original.
If you are a fan of true crime biography books, mafia books, organised crime books, books about hoaxes, deceptions and murder and mayhem then these brilliant, bestselling books are for YOU!

It's a page turner and at times hard to put down. Very easy to read yet informative and factual.
At times I wasn't sure if the dealers would glide through airports unnoticed by customs and police or if they were heading straight for 10 year sentence.
Katheryn does a great job setting up the reader for an unknown ride therefore I had a hard time putting this book down.
I recommend this book to anyone at any reading level. You will not be disappointed.
