MR SMILEY MY LAST PILL AND TESTAMENT


MR SMILEY MY LAST PILL AND TESTAMENT

HOWARD MARKS    Book Number: 86229    Product format: Hardback

Howard Marks is Britain's most famous drug smuggler having served seven years in a US penitentiary before becoming the bestselling author of Mr Nice. A former Oxford physics graduate, he was released from prison in 1995. He had been previously connected with such diverse groups as the CIA, IRA, MI6 and the Mafia. In 2014 he was diagnosed with terminal cancer and this is his last pill and testament. A hero to his generation, Howard made a promise to himself to go straight with no more drugs, smuggling or fake passports and retired to Ibiza at the height of the clubbing scene. The island was at the very centre of the vortex for the E generation. Pills had take the place of marijuana, Paul Oakenfold had replaced the Rolling Stones as the music of the masses, and every year an army of Brits headed south to enjoy the island's increasingly wild clubs and excesses. It wasn't long before Howard found himself taking pure ecstasy and rubbing shoulders with the kingpins of the pill trade, including some of Britain's most notorious gangsters who were laundering millions of pounds of gold stolen at the Brink's Mat bullion raid. All the while Howard was preparing for his most outrageous operation yet. Incredibly funny, moving and scabrous, here is a fitting last word from Britain's best-loved bad boy. 308pp in fairly large print, colour photos.
