En su breve y fulgurante carrera desarrollada en la década de los sesenta, Swan proveyó a una clientela elegante. Para ello se movió entre Bogotá y los clubes nocturnos de Nueva York e ideó tretas ingeniosas para burlar a los federales. Mientras creaba maniobras de distracción genuinamente barrocas y sobrevivía gracias a su ingenio y fortuna, descubrió en el camino un mundo peligroso y desbocado que Robert Sabbag evoca con extraordinaria fuerza y humor. Este fascinante relato es una desaforada visión de primera mano de un submundo poblado por dementes y desgarrado por la paranoia. El resultado es un libro esclarecedor y salvaje que influyó a toda una generación de escritores y traficantes

"Back in the early seventies, one man had the idea that bringing in a planeload of marijuana from Colombia might be a profitable enterprise. If nothing else, it would be one hell of an experience." "In a vintage DC-3, reassembled from spare parts to avoid FAA scrutiny, Allen Long set off for Colombia and the adventure of his life. The pot was there, all right, thousands of acres of the cleanest, sweetest plants he'd ever seen. The first load was a cinch." "Loaded is the story of Allen Long's trip from small-town dreamer to international high-wire artist. At first it was fun, with the pleasures of evading authorities and bringing quality herb home to eager friends. In the back of a limo, with celebrities on the phone and beautiful women on his arm, Long was in heaven." "But as the wealth grew, so did the weirdness. There was the cocaine, of course, and the surreal screwups that came from doing business stoned. But even more, what had begun as a wild scheme with like-minded pals was looking alarmingly like organized crime. Long never carried a gun, but every day he felt more like a target."--BOOK JACKET
