A truly amazing real life story, this book kept me enthralled from start to finish. McMillan's adventures in this book far outweigh anything I have read before. I particularly liked his outlandish experiences in Afghanistan, relentlessly pursued through various countries with many betrayals along the way. It is so good that McMillan is a survivor and able to entertain us with this book. I thoroughly recommend it.
if you watched David's movie, his Danny Dyer episode or seen his true crime podcasts on youtube, you will love this book, as it expands in great detail with many colourful descriptions and literary flourishes, all in David's warm articulate voice, as well as being a cautionary tale there are many other lessons David imparts in this masterpiece
David McMillan has a deserved reputation for aresting openings to his stories, and - phew! - no less with this story. It's extraordinary! How is this brilliant writer still alive after all he has been through? It's an amazing story - a biography you won't want to put down - and it is a story for all those right wing clowns who feel drug laws make sense. All they make for is corruption, and vast wealth for the ruthless. Nixon's drug law supporters would gain an enormous amount from this book. And all who love a really exciting read will find it very difficult to put down till the end. Well recommended - and how well it works with the Kindle reader for PCs, too. A word of warning, though. Unforgiving Destiny is not good for those who like to read a chapter before turning off the light for the night. You won't want to - you won't be able to - till the end of the last page.
Best book I've read in ages! This is high praise indeed as I am 2 or 3 book a week type. Mcmillians writing style is so incredibly readable I think he could write a book about double glazing and keep me reading till the end. As it is, the story he has to tell is so extraordinary I had to keep reminding myself it was true. You need to read this book!
Fantastic autobiographical rollercoaster conclusion of David McMillan's former life as a criminal mastermind. Giving more insight into his dealings and life in India Asia the Middle East & Australia, and his attempted evasion of various drug enforcement agencies across the world, his eventual capture and incarceration, and his release to continue his life as a free man once again. Fantastic
Well, this is an amazing book. David McMillan went through some incredible experiences as a professional drug smuggler and has kindly packaged it up in this book. Learn all about his run ins with the law in countries across the world as well as his escape from the notorious Klong Prem prison in Thailand. It's one of those books that is hard to put down so get into it!
