Think all associates of Pablo Escobar were violent? Then you don’t know Jack! Buccaneer    is   the   stimulating,   true   account   of   the   life    and   times   of   Jack   Reed,   an   All-American   boy   turned drug   smuggler;   turned   Robinson   Crusoe,   then   prison   inmate.   For   the   first   time,   Jack   Reed   discloses   his extraordinary,   tabooed   journey   as   a   high   flying   international   cocaine   smuggler   and   personal   pilot   for   Carlos Lehder,   partner   to   Pablo   Escobar   of   the   Medellin   Cartel.   Reed   flew   drug   runs   for   Lehder   who   handled transportation,    while    Colombian    drug    lord    Escobar    handled    production    and    supply.    Lehder's    cocaine   transport   empire   was   based   at   Norman's   Cay,   an   out   island   in   the   Bahamas.   Having   gained   notoriety   in   the late   70s   as   a   staging   point   for   drug    smuggling,   Norman's   Cay   was   immortalized   in   “Blow,”   a   2001   motion picture starring Johnny Depp.   Reed   lands   in   court   as   Lehder's   co-defendant   in   the   longest   running   drug   trial   in   U.S.   history. A   non-violent offender,   Reed   becomes   the    victim   of   a   tragic   judicial   sentencing   mistake.   Tired   of   being   hounded   by media,   Reed   denied   all   interviews   until   pilot/journalist   MayCay   Beeler   contacted   him   in   prison. At   that   time, she had no idea she would become his coauthor and a character in his life story and twist-of-fate ending.   "He   refused   to   talk   to   cops   and   press—until   me.   In   our   book,   which   was   a   collaborative   work   at   the   end   of Reed's   life,   Reed   breaks   his   silence   about   his   alleged   role   in   Pablo   Escobar's   Medellin   Drug   Cartel   and   his stunning   punishment   for   refusing   to   snitch   on   best   friend   Lehder   in   the   courtroom.   This   biography   features   shocking   judicial   misconduct;   a   historic   drug   trial;   and   the   first   drug   lord   extradited   to   the   United   States. Reed's controversial story will stun you. It has never been given to any other journalist." -MayCay Beeler.
