Jeffrey Robinson Non-fiction

Considered “one of world’s leading experts on international financial crime,” Robinson wrote his 1995 investigative tour de force, The Laundrymen, in which he uncovered the true extent of global money laundering.

The book reveals how hundreds of billions of dirty dollars are derived mainly from the drug trade, then reinvested throughout the world by otherwise legitimate businessmen, lawyers, accountants, and bankers. Business Week described it as “[a]n indictment of governments and banks”.

Robinson scripted and hosted several television documentaries, including one for the BBC, and another for Arte in France and Germany. Both have been shown in the United States. In 1998, he published a sequel to The Laundrymen, titled The Merger How Organized Crime is Taking Over The World.

Robinson described the disturbing lengths that transnational organized criminals go in order to build multi-national corporations; explained why organized crime is the major beneficiary of globalization; and claimed that transnational organized criminals have become the most powerful special interest group on the planet.

Five years later he published another book in this series: The Sink, about crime, terrorism, and dirty money. Between 1986–1994, he published three biographies: Yamani The Inside Story, about Saudi Arabia’s former Minister of Oil Ahmed Zaki Yamani;

Rainier & Grace, written about and with the cooperation of Monaco’s sovereign family and reissued in 2014 as Grace of Monaco after the fictionalized 2014 French biopic of Grace Kelly’s life; and Bardot – Two Lives, also written with the cooperation of Brigitte Bardot.

His other non-fiction titles include: The Risk Takers (his first UK best seller) which highlighted the high-fliers of City finance, recounting their tales of money, ego, and power; The Minus Millionaires, a sequel to The Risk Takers, in which he wrote about ‘risk-takers’ who had lost fortunes;

The End of the American Century, for which Robinson gained access to secret archives in the former Soviet Union to reveal hidden agendas of the Cold War; The Hotel, stories gathered over five months as a fly on the wall in what is, arguably, the best hotel in the world;

The Manipulators A Conspiracy to Make Us Buy, exposing the marketing world’s “hidden persuaders” 40 years after Vance Packard; and Prescription Games, an insider’s view of the global pharmaceutical industry, where science and marketing are deliberately kept apart and where, all too often, profit dictates who lives and who dies.

In 2005, he wrote his first “as told to” with an old college friend, Joseph Petro: Petro’s autobiography, Standing Next to History An Agent’s Life Inside the Secret Service. In 2007, Robinson co-authored Ronnie Wood’s autobiography, documenting Wood’s years as a rock star and member of the most famous band in the world, The Rolling Stones.

In 2009, he published his third “as told to”: Leading From The Front, co-written with British entrepreneur, Gerald Ronson. His treatise on fraud, There’s a Sucker Born Every Minute A Revelation Of Audacious Frauds, Scams, And Cons How To Spot Them, How To Stop Them was published in 2010.
