Zachary Swan: world-class smuggler of the finest cocaine, wicked genius, first-class fool. In his brief and brilliant career as a founding father of the trade, Swan serves the world's most elegant clientele by the most inelegant means, always staying just one step ahead.

Robert Sabbag's rip-roaring modern classic of reporting follows Zachary from the streets of Bogota to the nightclubs of New York, charting the soaring high and the crashing comedown of a legend.
