Chris "the Mick" Kavanagh went off the rails like few men have ever done, and somehow lived to tell about it.
The book starts with Chris's ascent as a minor player in Dublin's drug scene, to his arrest in Colombia for drug smuggling. After spending several years in a Colombian prison, Chris finds himself exiled without a passport in Colombia where he still teaches English today.
Along the way Chris introduces us to large cast of local Colombians, from tramps to major players in the booming 90s drug scene. Chris is brutally honest about some of his low-points, which include attempted murder, rape, and theft.
Well written and thoroughly fact checked with excerpts from newspapers to back up the Mick's claims. It's a wonder the guy is still alive.
A side benefit to this book is that I learned a lot about the Colombian culture and its history.
