In this gripping prequel to 'Escape: The true story of the only Westerner ever to break out of Thailand's Bangkok Hilton', drug smuggler-turned-bestselling author David McMillan tells it from the beginning. Throwing away an expensive education as a teenager then a promising executive career, McMillan hits rock bottom only to shake off the dust from the dirt-floor warehouse that was his home to make his first million dealing drugs before he turned 21. McMillan details his incredible plans to smuggle two tonnes of marijuana from northern Thailand by Learjet, befriend drug-dealing pimps in fishbowl brothels in Bangkok, rig cockfights in Manila with disgraced British peer Lord Moynihan and even transport liquid heroin in a transparent glass statue. Learn the tricks of the smuggling trade as McMillan arms himself and his teams of couriers with dozens of passports and custom-built machines that frustrate border guards for years. Success for McMillan comes at a heavy price as he builds up smuggling rings around the world only to see them repeatedly destroyed. While this true survivor overcomes prison time in half a dozen countries on four continents, the true cost is the lives of almost everyone he holds close. Soon enough the highlife of cash millions, glitzy apartments and commuting by Concorde is shattered as the law catches up with the urban-cool trafficker in Australia. Despite eleven years jail, and release under heavy surveillance, McMillan returns to the only world he knows: the smuggler's trail. Ahead lie shiploads of marijuana from Colombia, the opium fields of Afghanistan and death row in both Karachi and Bangkok.

Intriguing life!

If you are a big fan of criminal books, autobiographies and true stories, you will without doubt love Escape: The Past by David McMillan, presenting none other than his own life story started as a teenage drop out, throwing his life out the window only to start dealing drugs and making a fortune of them just under 21. The book presents McMillan’s plans and techniques of smuggling large quantities of narcotics from Thailand. The whole story shows that the glamour and wealth brought to the author only the loss of everything he held dearly watching his life falling apart.

Exciting Look Into the World of Drugs

On the one hand I found this book exciting and full of action, but on the other I feel like David Mcmillan is proud of his background and drug dealing past. He seems to think he is some kind of cool gangster, I don't get the impression that he regrets anything he did. However I feel the excitement of the story makes up for this and then some! This would make an incredible blockbuster film!
