- Summary: Keith Bulfin, a mortgage and stock broker who, convicted of a conspiracy to defraud in Victoria in 1997, is inexplicably sent to serve his time amongst murderers, rapists and psychopaths in the toughest prison unit at Melbourne's Port Philip prison. There, whilst desperately trying to survive, Bulfin is befriended by infamous Mexican drug cartel banker, Carlos Cabal. It is a friendship that will change his life. Fighting deportation from Australia following his release and seeking a pardon, Keith is encouraged by the Immigration Department and Parole Board to work undercover for the US Drug Enforcement Agency, the DEA. He is given little choice. But he comes to understand, all too late that his role - as private banker to the ruthless Mexican drug cartels - is one of the most dangerous assignments in the world. If caught, both he and his family will pay the ultimate price for betrayal. Bulfin completes nine successful assignments for the DEA before the tenth goes spectacularly wrong. Suddenly, he finds himself in a desperate battle to out-run both the DEA and the cartels.
