David Southwell is the author of a number of best-selling books on conspiracy theories and the nature of organized crime in the twenty-first century, including Conspiracy Files. A former journalist and newspaper editor, he has spent many years researching parapolitics and the international criminal underworld, the last several as a political insider. During the writing of this book David received two death threats against him from criminal gangs and a threat to remove his hands from one of the major Triads. As a result he is considering a move to somewhere small and obscure, retiring to write comic books and perhaps a movie script about the life of Bill Hicks.
