The docu-series will also speak to authorities trying to track down some of the world's biggest criminal masterminds, who will recount the extreme methods they've gone to try and catch them out - from tapping phones to setting up cameras and conducting raids.

We'll learn about five criminals in total - all with unbelievable and harrowing backstories that are sure to send shivers down your spine.

He's been in hiding since 1993, is said to have killed 50 and orchestrated many more murders. To this day, he's also highly involved in the drug trade.

"How Messina Denaro has managed to remain free is the million dollar question," one interviewee says in a trailer for the Netflix doc.
