9780091909192: Mr Nice & Mrs Marks: Adventures with Howard

Howard Marks’s story has passed into hippie folklore. At one time, the world’s then most wanted man had 43 aliases, 89 phone lines, and 25 registered companies. Thanks to the technical brilliance of his networking skills, it was estimated that he was trafficking as much as a tenth of all the marijuana smoked in the world. But this is only half the story, for intimately involved throughout was Marks’s wife Judy. From living the high life hobnobbing with movie stars and nightclub scenesters to mixing with the IRA and CIA, and finally the long, increasingly desperate years on the run, this memoir is about the exhilaration of the criminal life and the hell of not knowing what's happening when your husband stops telling you the truth. Now, for the first time, Judy tells her own side of the tale.

About the Author:

Judy Marks met  the infamous marijuana smuggler Howard Marks in 1972 at a dinner party in Brighton when she was 16 and he was 27. Judy couldn´t have known they were one day destined to become Britain's Most Wanted couple.
Judy was something of a wild child herself (just as well when you're married to the world's most notorious hash smuggler). Judy could not help but become intimately involved with Howard's scams. She would act as courier and go-between when Howard was stuck without a passport or identity and she would ultimately pay the price, spending two heart-breaking years in jail away from their  three children.And then five years bringing up and supporting her children on her own untill Howard rejoined them.
Judy Marks lives in Mallorca, Spain.

Review:

"Utterly gripping" * Elle * "A unique insight into the couple's highs and lows ... An endearing and fascinating read" -- Faye Hannah * Big Issue * "Reveals the rollercoaster ride of being married to the world's most notorious hash smuggler" * TNT Magazine * "Puts forward an alternative view of Howard Marks' life and illustrates how a young woman can be easily blinded by love" * Financial Times * "A frank and engaging tale" * Sunday Express *
