Descripción del producto
"An American criminal mastermind" (Ed Caesar Sunday Times)
"A spellbinding narrative of drugs, death and debauchery as told by one of America's most notorious criminals... A savage, unrelenting tale" (Kirkus Reviews)
"A tour de force. The best crime book since Wiseguy. Puts you in the middle of a world where it's wonderful to be a tourist, terrible to be a resident. I am filled with nothing but admiration and envy for Evan Wright" (Rich Cohen, author of THE FISH THAT ATE THE WHALE)
"Imagine if Mister Kurtz from Heart of Darkness sat down with Dick Cavett for a little chat about the nature of good and evil, empathy, fatherhood, violence, drugs, power, self-knowledge, women, family, the hero versus the anti-hero, freedom, imprisonment...Try as you might, you can't really put this book down" (Doug Stanton, author of HORSE SOLDIERS and IN HARM’S WAY)
"Seldom have I read an account of criminal enterprise that took me so deeply into the blackness of a man’s soul – a scary read, pounding and relentless and irresistible" (Bruce Porter, author of BLOW)
Reseña del editor
‘The best crime book since Wiseguy’ – Rich Cohen
A real-life Scarface, Jon was born into the Gambino Mafia family and witnessed his first murder aged seven. He joined a US Army assassination squad in Vietnam to escape a teen criminal charge, then fled New York to reinvent himself in Miami as the number one supplier of cocaine in the US. With a crazed bodyguard always at his side, and a fortress protected by mortars, tear-gas cannons, and a gold-fanged attack dog, Roberts was brutally effective at what he did.
With a cast that includes everyone from Jimi Hendrix and OJ Simpson to the CIA and General Noriega, American Desperado is a hedonistic, adrenaline-soaked joyride through the world of Escobar and the cartels, told by one of most successful criminals of all time.

Let me put it straight to you, I know people that knew him personally and was under his employ from working with Horses. Jon is very unapologetic he was one of the meanest sons of bitches to walk the streets of South Florida and New York City. He had the capacity to kill and maim and go to lunch like it never happened. A sociopath with a big heart but also had a dark side that one would be best to have respected and feared if they crossed him .
The book is good, funnt at times and is the most in depth look at what was going on in the 80s in Miami.
He does not blow his own horn at how big a player he was he does not need to.
Also, the people who are supporting characters are almost as interesting as Jon Roberts. Mickey Munday especially and the cartel people Jon Roberts meets and partners or works with have their own interesting back stories and takes on things. His bodyguard was a wrestler who went by the wrestling name "The Thing". I will be surprised if this book is not made into a movie at some point in the future. There were so many interesting facets to it.
I can't recommend this book enough. I am surprised it would not be universally reviewed as 4 or 5 stars, unless the reader is one that doesn't have the stomach for violence and disturbing situations - then I would understand completely giving this book a lower rating. If that is you, stay away from this book.
