              The last pill and testament from Britain's most famous and well-love drug smuggler, Howard Marks. Howard Marks is the most famous drug smuggler of his age, and a hero to a generation. On his release from one of America's toughest prisons, Howard made a promise to himself to go st...raight. No more drugs, no more smuggling, no more fake passports. He would retire to a quiet life with his family in the Balearic Islands of Spain. It didn't quite work out that way. This was the mid-nineties - the height of the ecstasy and clubbing boom - and Ibiza was at the very centre of the vortex for the 'E generation'. Pills had taken the place of marijuana, Paul Oakenfold had replaced The Rolling Stones as the music of the masses, and every year an army of Brits headed south to lose themselves to the excesses of the island's increasingly wild clubs. It wasn't long before Howard found himself trying pure ecstasy and rubbing shoulders with some of the kingpins of the pill trade, including some of Britain's most notorious gangsters, who were laundering millions of pounds of gold stolen in the legendary Brink's-Mat bullion raid. As Britons descended on Ibiza ahead of one of the greatest summers of the decade, Howard was preparing for his most outrageous operation yet. Incredibly funny, moving and scabrous, Mr Smiley follows a journey to the heartland of the clubbing and British crime scene. It is also a fitting last word from one of Britain's best-loved bad boys.

              The last pill and testament from Britain's most famous and well-love drug smuggler "Told with trademark wit and charm." Press and Journal "He is such a good writer ... Some of the descriptions in Mr Smiley of the Marbella coast, its seedy bars and empty millionaires' mansio...ns, are almost worthy of Raymond Chandler." The Sunday Times Howard Marks has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But determined not to go quietly into the night, he has decided that it is time to release Mr Smiley, the story of his last and biggest ever drug scam at the height of the 90s ecstasy frenzy. On his release from prison in 1995, Howard had made a promise that this time he was going to go straight... but it wasn't long before Howard found himself trying ecstasy and rubbing shoulders with some of the king-pins of the pill trade. Incredibly funny, moving and scabrous, Mr Smiley is a free-standing follow up to Mr Nice, which follows a journey to the heartland of the clubbing scene and British crime.

After a world-wide operation, he was arrested and sentenced to 25 years at a State Penitentiary in Indiana, but was released in 1995 after serving seven years. This is his own... story.
