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
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!
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!
David McMillan's life has been both tragic and utterly fascinating. He has challenged the world with nerves of steel and, despite the worst odds, he has survived and thrived. I would describe David as the James Bond of the drug smuggling underworld...'Unforgiving Destiny' is a must read...
