A while ago, a friend of mine recommended I read this book and I couldn’t put it down. This true story about Thomas McFadden a convicted English drug trafficker who ran tours inside Bolivia’s San Pedro prison.
This prison isn’t your average prison. Some shady shit goes down. From inmates buying their cells from real estate agents, women and children living with their imprisoned family members, drug lords, politicians this book is gritty and raw!
Rusty Young an Australian journalist embedded himself in San Pedro, striking up a friendship with Thomas McFadden to tell this incredible story.
Marching Powder by Rusty Young & Thomas McFadden is this month’s book selection.
Hope you enjoy!
