HARD Talk’s Stephen Sackur interviews a writer whose work has made him the most dangerous of enemies. A decade ago Roberto Saviano wrote a best-selling book, Gomorrah, which exposed the power and brutality of the Neapolitan mafia.

Now he’s written a new book about the global cocaine trade – why has he sacrificed so much to expose organised crime?
