by Austin Galt
Paperback – 30 January 2018
RRP $29.99
A young Aussie goes behind the drug smuggling lines in deadly beautiful Colombia.
‘God made Colombia the most beautiful country in the world so he had to balance it by inhabiting it with the worst people in the world.’ Old Colombian Proverb

Australian writer Austin Galt arrived in Colombia looking for a life less ordinary. He found it – or did it find him? On Austin’s first day in the country he was hauled off a bus to look down the barrel of a gun as he was detained and questioned by the AK-47-toting Revolutionary Armed Forces. Welcome to Colombia!
In the days, months and years that followed, Austin travelled all over Colombia, tracing the Narcos’ trail and walking in the shadows of drug lords such as Pablo Escobar and the Cali Cartel. While meeting local gangsters and international coke traffickers, he attended underworld parties and was lured into the sex, drugs and danger-fuelled life of an underworld kingpin.
What he discovered in those crazy days and white nights shocked, scared and, ultimately, seduced him.
