If your looking for another Mr Nice tale of daring drug smuggling this is NOT it. It is however another extaordinary tale, with Howard researching his Welsh ancestry, he travels to the West Indies and South America on the trail of Captain Henry Morgan, and Welsh settlers in Patagonia. He even applies to be the U.K's drug czar! Another entertaining read from Mr Nice

I was given this book as a present as soon as i had read Mr Nice and had high expectations. However now i have read this book i cant help but feel dissappointed. In a way this was inevitable - after such a chaotic life as an illegal drug dealer, life post prison is quieter. This creates problems as he just doesn't have the material to write an interesting book and although i like the way he writes, he stuggles to bring this stuff to life. Ive read it on the train as a way to fill time, but would not recommend this for avid Mr Nice readers.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Straightforward TOP 500 REVIEWER on 26 Nov. 2008
Format: Paperback
Howard Marks made his name in the literary world with "Mr. Nice", an very entertaining account of his adventures (and misadventures) as he pursued a career smuggling dope; it's an excellent read, although there's bound to be a few who missed out on his natural writing style because of the drug-centric nature of the book. No matter - it's their loss. Quite rightly it became a huge hit, and he now supplements his income reading extracts from the book and recounting amusing tales that have happened to him along the way.

He's still very much pro-dope; he stood as a candidate for the Legalise Marijuana Party a few years ago, and although he claims to have been motivated by the chance to raise the profile of that political issue, I suspect that at least part of the reason was simply to cause a bit of mischief.

He's an educated man (went to Oxford University, and so on), and has an ability to make you feel that he's talking to you and you only when you read his writing.

His latest publication is "Senor Nice", and it documents his journey of discovery as he decides to travel to Brazil and Argentina via the Caribbean to discover the history behind Henry Morgan, the famous pirate and his claimed-to-be relative, and to see if he can find much evidence of Welsh settlements in South America, where more of his relatives are rumoured to have made their homes.

This book is no way as good as Mr. Nice; it is more a story of Howard trying to find the roots of his family. He goes to different countries researching his family tree. There are no stories of drug deals or false passports, only one for the hardcore fan or people interested in Welsh history!

This is a cracker of a book that takes us all over the world with the former worlds most wanted man. With a supporting cast of underworld names like fred foreman, Dave Courtney, Tel Currie and the Kray's this is a real great read.

This book is a great read and gives a deeper insight into the life and 'work' of Mr Howard! It was a gift for a friend who had been to see a Howard Marks show.
