Candidly told in his own words, this is a no-holds-barred account of the man who has served prison sentences on both sides of the Atlantic, most recently for conspiring to kill Colombian drug baron Pablo Escobar. From the bloody plains of Angola to the jungles of Colombia, David Tomkins’ career as a safe-breaker, arms dealer, and mercenary spans five decades. Born in London during World War II, he was hospitalized for a time in a psychiatric ward and sent to reform school after he was deemed "beyond parental control." Later, following a spell in the Merchant Navy, he graduated from safe-blower to demolitions expert with a notorious mercenary army in Angola. From intrigue in Mayfair offices to tribal lands in Pakistan, Tomkins’ story reads like a real-life version of a Tom Clancy thriller. It is a shocking account of crime and corruption, and the scope of his activities will amaze and intrigue.
