Gringo My Life On The Edge As an International Fugitive is a memoir about Dan Tito Davis who wrote about his life while on the run from the United States federals. Tito was born in South Dakota, a small town that everyone knows the name of the neighbor's cat. Dan managed to go to school and it is here that he managed to have a side hustle that came to change the course of his life.
While at the University of Nevada he started manufacturing White Crosses, aka speed.The Banditos motorcycle club distributed ten million peels weekly. After making a dime, he graduated to making weed and while at it he was betrayed by his childhood friend. Davis life was in danger he slipped to Mexico without knowing a word of Spanish. Dan was on the hideout from the Medellin cartel in Mexico through the jungles of the Darien Gap.
He met a girl Mary Luz who she fell in love with while in Venezuela. Their relationship, however, went south temporarily when Mary Luz went to Germany to study and met a Belgian guy. Tito was not a happy person after discovering that Mary Luz was hanging out with another guy and had lost interest in him.
However, Mary Luz was back in Dan Tito's arms after a while and they even got officially married. Mary's choice of honeymoon place was not a good one as they went through hell while in this Indian city. While they were back in Venezuela after a troublesome honeymoon the feds were after Tito once again after getting the clue of his hideout from the wife of his friend who he was involved with in the marijuana business.
Dan Tito was not lucky this time as his instincts led him to the feds he was trying to escape from. His American Lawyer Bon Van Norman tried to keep the law-suit alive but to no avail. Tito was sentenced to 120 months in federal prison. He has never seen Mary Luz since he was sentenced.
I give this book a rating of 4 out of 4 stars because it is quite captivating and it keeps you wanting more just as the events unfold in a systematic yet suspenseful way.No grammatical errors but more of vocabularies that you might want to get your dictionary not far from reach. I would recommend it to anyone who loves action-packed thriller books that involve fugitive behavior.
