'If Howard Marks was the king of the cannabis smuggle, Luis Navia is the Howard Marks of the cocaine trade.'
- GRAHAM HONEY, HMCE Senior Investigation Officer (Ret.)
'With a cast of wild, grotesque and often deadly characters, strapped into a rollercoaster they cannot or will not get off, PURE NARCO is a deliriously pleasurable ride. Luis Navia was a key trafficker for the biggest Colombian and Mexican cartels, and his insight into how they flooded the USA and Europe with drugs is unparalleled. This is the best insider account ever written of the global cocaine trade and the outrageous but precarious lives of those at the top.'
- PETER WALSH, author of DRUG WAR: THE SECRET HISTORY
'PURE NARCO is a true story of redemption ... it offers a rare glimpse into the life of a drug smuggler from the MIAMI VICE era to the end of the millennium, when it all came crashing down for Luis Navia.'
- NIGEL BROOKS, USCS Senior Special Agent (Ret.)
'A rare insight into the drug traffickers' world and law enforcement's efforts to arrest them and seize the drugs.'
- GRAHAM TITMUSS, HMCE Investigation Officer (Ret.)
'Luis Navia was one of the biggest drug traffickers ever known - but never heard of. Jesse Fink's in-depth, entertaining and informative account of Luis's life during the height of the cocaine trade in the United States in the 1980s and '90s is like a speck in the eyes of a race-car driver moving at 200 miles an hour, albeit a large speck. PURE NARCO reveals how a seemingly regular "businessman" can in reality be a successful drug trafficker.'
- VICENTE M. GARCIA, HSI Assistant Special Agent in Charge (Ret.)
