"Bringing two kilos of fine China White heroin from the Golden Triangle to safe hiding in Melbourne had become a worldwide dance of false trails and triple identities... but the cash rewards at the time might make a saint doubt his calling."
David McMillan should have known better. Born into an establishment family, highly intelligent and well-educated, he sabotaged a career in film and advertising for a life of crime and the love of excitement, money and a beautiful girl.
McVillain tells the true story of the gentleman rogue who went from high life to low life to hell in a jail cell... and lived to tell the tale. In his best-selling debut, Escape, McMillan tells how he escaped from the notorious Bangkok Hilton and became an international fugitive. In McVillain, he paints a vivid portrait of the artist as a young rogue.
