Scoundrels in Paradise is the true story of a family drug business operated across international borders, as told by insider and narrator Scott Adlai Stevenson. Scott was named for his older cousin Adlai E. Stevenson, who was a former two-time Presidential candidate and American Ambassador to the United Nations. Scott recounts a roller coaster ride through the global counterculture of the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's. It is a ride of flamboyant decadence and adventure, that eventually ends in homelessness and tragedy. Scott's story begins in his early teens with his first drug smuggling experience at the self-seeking insistence of his older brother Ron. Over the course of nearly forty years, Scott travels the world inventing elaborate drug smuggling scams that continually outmaneuver the authorities. He evokes a hip, dangerous, fast-paced lifestyle by creating diversions that are unique and witty. Scott survives on smuggler's ingenuity, idiot's luck and the love of exotic women. This candidly written true story is infused with fascinating travels through the cultural landscapes of California, Hawaii, Europe, Morocco, Indonesia, Bangkok and beyond. Ominously, this path leads down a twisted road of lies and deception. It is a story of loves forged and loves lost; of selfishness, greed, deceit, lust, revenge, sorrow and truth. This book belongs to anyone who savors a well-told tale of adventure, loves the music of the era, and appreciates a life lived to its fullest.
