Summary

Dan “Tito” Davis is the ultimate survivor. Having been an international fugitive for over 13 years, and across more than 54 countries, Tito had evaded the tough, three lettered trio of the F.B.I., C.I.A., and the D.E.A., and then, for good measure, the U.S. Marshals, Homeland Security, U.S. Customs, Interpol, local law enforcement agencies, immigration agents, mercenaries, guerrilla organisations, professional kidnappers, career hit-men, vigilantes, human traffickers, and most other entities worth being wanted by.

Through the various chapters of his life, Tito dealt with the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, invented the “Red Bull” of the day, lived, laughed and loved with the Medellin cartel, negotiated the deadly Darien Gap, weathered three weddings, had plastic surgery to alter his appearance, owned a resort in Venezuela, attended school with third graders, looked down a few gun barrels, piloted jet airliners, won a national kite surfing championship, racked up a few million dollars, made some enemies and a heck of a lot of friends.

Being a fugitive is hard work

doing the crime was easy staying out of jail was bloody hard work (ok so his jail time related to a crime he did not do, a strange usa court snitch deal, probably because the cops could not get him on his other crimes) .
always looking over your shoulder is a hard way to live life.

Not What I Thought<br />

Listened to the sample, sounded interesting so I bought it. Tried giving it a go, but... I less than half way through and can't go further. It's very slow. Slow and dry. Uneventful. And again, very very slow. Definitely not for me.

Voice inflection!

I listened to most of this in the car during a road trip. The narrator drove me nuts speaking with the voice inflection of a news caster and then trailing off to near inaudible sighs at the end of a sentence and all of a sudden starting a new sentence or clause with the volume of a used car sales commercial in the same breath. I kept having to turn the volume down and up depending on the force of the point the author was trying to make, which brings me to the story. The first quarter is about drug smuggling, the remainder is about hanging out in South America and hoping he doesn’t get caught. I get it, he lived an interesting life, but I don’t think the subtitle really lives up to the subject matter.

Fascinating!

What a fascinating story!! Dan “Tito” has had a very interesting life and the book explains it very well. The narration is very well done as well.

Totally recommend it!

Great book, ends somewhat abruptly

Fascinating story and all in all a very interesting listen. My only complaint is to say the end is somewhat abrupt would be an understatement. I think it would have been better had he kind of explained, for better or worse, what that experience and subsequent arrest had done to his current life situation. It is just basically “I got arrested, I tried to get my legitimately acquired assets back, no dice. Audible hopes you enjoyed this program.”
