Like the woman who hijacked a helicopter to bust her husband out of Death Row, the gap year student who robbed a bank and tried to escape on a kid's bike and the unlucky Londoner who kidnapped the wrong guy and wound up serving 1,285 years in jail.
As British consul in our nation’s favourite holiday hotspot, Hugh Hunter has seen them all – murderers, small-time conmen and big-time drug dealers (plus ordinary families whose dream vacations turned to nightmares).
Our Man in Orlando is his astonishing true story of a decade spent dealing with clueless, witless and hopeless Brits abroad.
Hugh Hunter was a guest on the Victoria Derbyshire show on Five Live and Excess Baggage on Radio 4.
Our Man in Orlando was serialised in The Times and The Week magazine and the book is about to be turned into a major new television drama.
