Forget The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Weeds, Blow or any other show that has tried to show the mafia or drug dealer lifestyle.
Luck of the Devil is the real story of what actually happened "behind the scenes" in the world of drug smuggling in the 1970s and 1980s as told by someone who actually lived it.
Luck of the Devil follows Jack Collins fresh out of the Navy in 1969 as he heads to Miami. There, he falls into the hippie culture of the day. Looking to score free drugs for himself and his friends, he starts dealing blow and pills on the side.
Jack eventually grows into the "bigger" game of pills and cocaine as he establishes relationships with the Colombians.
Eventually his "street wise" experience allows him to meet some of the biggest players in the world and he becomes one of primary smugglers for the Colombian cartels and an Italian mafia family from Rome.
If you ever wondered what the life of a drug lord as really like, not as it's portrayed on TV and in film, then Luck of the Devil will open your eyes to the seedy underside of one of the most lucrative and profitable businesses in the world.
WARNING: This book is meant for mature listeners only. Luck of the Devil contains graphic descriptions of brutal violence, wild sex, prolonged drug use, and lots of profanity. If you are easily offended by such material then you should not get this book.

Not a bad story-- or set of vignettes to be more accurate-- but the narrator is as bad as they come. He also randomly repeats sentences and at times you can hear what I presume is him adjusting a lamp. American Desperado by Jon Roberts is the major league version of this one.
