During the seventies and into the early eighties, South Florida was the capital of herb. Marijuana bales floated ashore with the tide and at times, rained from the sky. Close proximity to Jamaica and Columbia – prime producers of the illegal weed – made the lower peninsular an ideal landing strip and offloading point for planes and vessels of every description. Loose bands of smugglers with no connection to organized crime operated at will. And violence, now synonymous with the trade was rare. Before cocaine was king, smuggling was a laid back business open to anyone who could fly a plane or navigate a boat across the Straits of Florida.
Another great story from the author of 97 Miles South.” -John Radkins, editor C.A.M. Magazine
97 Miles South – Paperback Edition $9.95 plus $3.95 S&H
“The plot takes the reader on a spellbinding ride that exposes the ugly political underside of modern Cuba. Adventure, Romance, Intrigue – it’s all there.” Bonnie Rice
“I’m really impressed, it’s a polished novel…. it’s very captivating, and absolutely beautiful when you talk about nature, fishing and the Cuban ways of life. THE FINAL MARLIN SCENE IS FANTASTIC! It really finishes strong! The last 50 pages are super suspenseful. It’s a bit like Hunter S. Thompson’s THE Rum Diaries.”
-David Conway, Managing Editor Florida Sportsman Magazine
Fun, entertaining, and often thought provoking read from a writer with what is obviously a genuine voice from experience. This book is easy to lose yourself in and was hard to put down. I love his expression of Cuba “bicycling its way through the jet age”. No doubt, Cuba is stuck in time, and the nearby island of Key West is full of colorful, rebellious, and adventurous characters. Phil Thompson weaves it all together into a vibrant book. Well done! This “new” writer has a very bright future and I look forward to his next book. (I wouldn’t be surprised if this book was made into a movie). -Amazon review by Free Thinker
I just finished reading Phil Thompson’s new book 97 Miles South. What a great book! Couldn’t put it down. His knowledge of Big Game Fishing and vivid descriptions of Cuba hooked me. Fishing a Blue Marlin Tournament in an exotic setting such as Cuba-Can it get any better?
The plot takes the reader on a spellbinding ride that exposes the ugly political underside of modern Cuba. Adventure, Romance, Intrigue-It’s all here.
Phil Thompson’s first novel is going to have Randy Wayne White looking over his shoulder. This book is that good. Looking forward to the next Phil Thompson novel.
