The Smuggler S Ghost from the Author: Steve Lamb. When marijuana turned a Florida teen into a millionaire fugitive. According to a 1983 article entitled "Tales of some who are citizens of the world" that appeared in the St. Petersburg Times, Steve Lamb was "one of Pinellas County's most renowned smugglers" and was being investigated in various states, including Michigan, North Carolina, New Mexico, and Nevada. When millions of rebellious college students and high schoolers sat smoking the same thing and singing the same songs, Steve Lamb was practicing the laws of supply and demand, hop-scotching through the Caribbean in search of his first million dollars. I was in Federal Law enforcement during the sixties and seventies, worked hundreds of narcotic cases and thought I'd either seen or heard everything there was about drugs and drug trafficking. I was wrong. The Smugglers Ghost straightened me out. It's a page turner. -Bernie Rhoades, Chief U. S. Probation and Parole Officer for the District of Utah (ret.), author of D. B. Cooper, the Real McCoy. A gripping, heart-thumping ride-along with smugglers as they buy boatloads of marijuana in Jamaica and spirit them into Florida. They elude determined cops, corrupt some others, make a pile of money. And some live to tell the tale. And that's just one facet of this compelling, first-person true story of the man who came to be known as "one of Pinellas County's most renowned smugglers." -Frank C. Strunk, author of Jordon's Wager, Jordon's Showdown, and Throwback. The story of Steve Lamb is Florida history in its finest telling. Too often as we look back at the events that shaped our present world we forget to look at the person who emerges from our midst to cause social change that could never have been predicted. If you smoked your first joint at a rock concert in the sixties or seventies then you might want to read the saga of one of the men who made it possible. -Gene Proulx, Special Agent in Charge of NOAA's Southeast Region, (ret.), Offfice of Law Enforcement, author of Fresh Catch.
