Howard Marks joins Lauren to talk about his new book, Mr Smiley: My Last Pill and Testament.

Howard Marks joins Lauren to talk about his new book, Mr Smiley, the Last Pill and Testament.

Picking the story up after Howard's release from one of America's toughest prisons, Mr Smiley sees the former smuggler retire to a quiet life with his family in the Balearic Islands of Spain - or that's how it should have gone, anyway. After Marks unwittingly finds himself in Ibiza in the mid-nineties, during ecstasy culture's peak, he might be forgiven for believing that trouble follows HIM wherever he goes, and not the other way around.
