Gangster Stephen French stole GBP20 million from Britain's biggest drug traffickers during his reign as the underworld's top narcotics 'taxman'. From Sicily to Istanbul, French was feared by those who claim to fear no one as he 'taxed' those above the law. The former world champion kick boxer didn't care how ruthless or powerful his underworld victims were and, using unspeakable acts of evil, he kidnapped and tortured some of the world's richest and most brutal crime lords until they paid up. And without fail they did. French amassed his fortune - the cornerstone of his legitimate business empire today - using three ruthless business methods. Firstly, he was the most prolific drugs taxman the underworld has ever known. Secondly, he was the debt-collector for the UK's biggest and richest ever criminal, Curtis Warren. Thirdly, he led a 'tie-up' gang: specialist armed robbers who stole drugs and money from dealers in secret raids using military tactics. Taxing is a secret world, a new phenomenon that grew out of the '90s drugs explosion. It is a modern day protection racket in which the victims are offered false sanctuary from the other villains who want to rob them.In "The Devil", top investigative journalist Graham Johnson will expose the little-known world of taxing. The book contains exclusive interview material with French, who reveals what it's like be a member of Warren's UK Cartel - the first time an insider has ever spoken on the record. French also gives a blow-by-blow account of the 200-plus raids he has carried out on drug dealers, relieving them of both their drugs and their money.
