The ‘Bonnie & Clyde’ adventures of the world's most notorious dope smugglers.

Having read "Mr Nice" (by Judy's ex-husband Howard), I thought it would be interesting to read about the same events from another point of view. And it was, but it all became rather same-y: Howard does something illegal, Judy is surprised when the police get involved, Howard promises to go straight and doesn't, Judy is upset. It was all a bit self-indulgent, and entirely lacking in remorse for the lives ruined by the drugs sold by Howard.

Not sure about this. Interesting history but is a list of countries, riches, privileges etc. So knowing she was complicit in a lot of DHM's activities, it is hard to feel sympathy when it all goes tits up.

This is only worth a read if you have read mr nice by howard marks. As it does fill in some of the gaps that are missing in his autobiography. Judy I find is a bit of an annoying character and really hasn't got the charm an charisma that Howard has.

Although this is a well regarded book, I found it very ordinary. Nothing extraordinary and it is not even a nice read to kill time. Very disappointed with the book.
