The 'Bonnie & Clyde' adventures of the world's most notorious dope smugglers - now in mass market paperback
I have long wanted to write a book about my life and the extraordinary years I spent with my husband Howard Marks. I feel now is the time. I want to write it from a woman’s perspective and describe what it was like to be married to such a charismatic drug smuggler.' Judy Marks Howard Marks’s story has passed into hippie folklore. At one time, the world’s then most wanted man had 43 aliases, 89 phone lines and 25 registered companies. Thanks to the technical brilliance of his networking skills, it was estimated that he was trafficking as much as a tenth of all the marijuana smoked in the world. But this is only half the story. Intimately involved throughout was Marks’s wife Judy. From living the high life hobnobbing with movie stars and euro trash to mixing it with the IRA and CIA, then the long, increasingly desperate years on the run,
Mr Nice and Mrs Marks
is about the exhilaration of their criminal life and the hell of not knowing what's happening when your husband stops telling you the truth. Now, for the first time, Judy tells her own side of the tale.
Judy Marks was born in Hertfordshire. She met Howard Marks in 1972 at a dinner party in Brighton when she was 16 and he was 27. They became a couple shortly afterwards, and after waiting until they could be wedded using their real names, not aliases, eventually married in 1980. Judy spent years on the run with Howard around the world and, when the authorities finally caught up with him for the last time, five long years waiting for his release, which came at last in 1995. They have two daughters and a son.
