Summary

Allen Long possessed charisma and cunning in equal measure. But he needed to know that those around him could handle pressure. After all, they'd be violating Columbian and US airspace in a dilapidated DC-3 and landing in bandit country. This is the follow-up to the drug smuggling tale "Snowblind".

Smokescreen Summary

Smokescreen by Robert Sabbag

When Allen Long's attempts to make a documentary on drug smuggling stalled for cash, smuggling seemed the obvious way to raise the necessary money. Millions of dollars later the film still hadn't been made; but Long's own life as a pioneering dope smuggler had played out like a Hollywood movie - the seat-of-the-pants rides in decrepit DC3's into the Colombian badlands, the near misses with law enforcement agencies, the fortunes earned and blown, the models, the partying, the Studio 54 years, being busted ...Written by Robert Sabbag, the undisputed master of the genre, Smokescreen is a hilarious piece of hair-raising reportage that will keep your pulse raising to the very last page.

One of the best books of 2002 . . . so far . . . Absolutely spliffing * * Sunday Herald * *
Nail-biting foray into the seedy Colombian underworld, is shocking, irreverent and impossible to put down. * * The Scotsman (holiday reads) * *
