How does a young student majoring in Portuguese at Georgetown University in Washington, DC become one of the biggest drug smugglers on Earth? And how does he survive 25 years in the trade - and encounters with some of its most powerful and ruthless figures, from Pablo Escobar to Narcos- Mexico's Alberto Sicilia Falc n - when he hates violence and never carries a gun? In his decades in the business, the savvy, charismatic Luis Navia was responsible for hundreds of tonnes of cocaine making their way across the globe. In the process, he became a multimillionaire, but while living as a fugitive spent heavily on a lavish but wasteful lifestyle. All while Luis - torn between guilt and adrenalin - tried to maintain a semblance of normal family life as he frequently veered out of control. In Pure Narco, Australian author Jesse Fink brilliantly tells this incredible story through the eyes of Luis, his family, and his wife and former lovers - as well as the relentless American law-enforcement officials who finally swooped and brought him to justice. It's a white-powdered, white-knuckle ride you'll never forget.
