Product description

Product Description

Unforgiving Destiny follows the true story of the 37-year pursuit by authorities on five continents to imprison and execute David McMillan as he travelled as an independent smuggler. Dogged by an obsessed DEA agent, he evades the death penalty in Thailand by escaping prison, only to be 'disappeared' in Pakistan after crossing the Afghan border.
After every downfall, McMillan rebuilds his life and network only to find the same agency people arranging capture by any means. In this private history, readers are taken to the streets of New York City and Colombia, then through the war-zones of Afghanistan and torture cells in Karachi. At the same time, McMillan balances a double life of a London gentleman with the women in his life oblivious to his true nature. Look to the author pages to hear readings, related music over those years and see the faces behind this extraordinary journey.
“Imagine losing everything you care about. Home, family, freedom, every object that built your life,” writes McMillan. “Then locked in some of the world’s worst prisons. Even if you survive, there are little deaths feeding on your guts — when that happens five times over thirty years, those little deaths drain your soul.” Unforgiving Destiny – the Relentless Pursuit of a Black Marketeer reveals the ultimate cost of survival in the darkest of dark worlds.

About the Author

Born in London in 1956, David McMillan was a film technician and drug-law-reform activist before a career crossing borders with contraband as a black-marketeer. Charged following a drug-conspiracy and helicopter-breakout plan, he was later released and pursued to Thailand, imprisoned again and escaped alone. 'Escape', his book of the jailbreak, has sold over 100,000 copies. For the next twenty years, McMillan changed identities and evaded Interpol alerts until an extradition request from Thailand reached the UK courts. He narrowly avoided return, and was freed in 2016.
