The only Westerner ever to escape from Thailand's notorious prison Bangkok Hilton, drug smuggler David McMillan tells his story from the very beginning

A millionaire by the age of 21, David McMillan smuggled two tons of marijuana from northern Thailand by Learjet, befriended drug-dealing pimps in fishbowl brothels in Bangkok, rigged cockfights in Manila with a disgraced British peer, and transported liquid heroin in a glass statue. However, all this success came at a heavy cost. While this true survivor serves time in prison in half a dozen countries on four continents, the true price of his exploits is paid by everyone he holds dear.
