Smugglers 3 Book Review


Smugglers 3 Accidental Kingpin

By Gerald McCallum

From Florida to Hawaii

The smuggling never stops and neither does the killing. Ride along with Geraldo who never planned on smuggling drugs. You might say the first batch of cocaine simply fell into his lap about ten miles off the coast of Miami. He and his buddies can't resist the riches the first hundred pounds of the premium white stuff represents. It is the start of their journey through hell. 

Bullets and Bodies

Geraldo discovers that he has a talent for smuggling drugs. But his gift brings out the worst in his opponents. Journey with Geraldo as he outsmarts the drug cartel. When his lifestyle wrecks havoc on his family, Geraldo finds he has an even greater ability to deliver revenge to those who cross him.


During a friendly fishing trip, Geraldo and his friends come across a floating cooler containing 44 kilos of cocaine. They agree to cut and sell it in small quantities so as not to create suspicion. Before long though, they are spending money galore. which in turn puts them in the radar of crooked cops and the Mexican cartel.

I honestly didn't enjoy this book as much as the first two. Even though a few of the original characters were brought back, it still was lacking for me. All the carelessness and callousness had me constantly fearing for Geraldo's family. I guess greed is an addictive motivator. I also noticed that the author used the title of one of his books in the story. That was a nice touch. I would have liked more story along that line though. I think it would have added a little more strength to the scene.
