This is the story of contraband runs of 2,000 miles in a 60-foot North Sea Fishing Boat with a mixed bag of a crew: a Scotch captain, a French doctor, a Belgian journalist-resistance fighter, an Irishman, and an Australian murderer who eventually turned pirate. Here are the recollections also of Tangier s post-war expatriate colony of Foreign Legion deserters, gigolos turned gun-runners, a panty manufacturer who s a smuggler and a pirate, a murdered Countess, and that Man in Naples, Lucky Luciano. There are also some better known folks: Paul Bowles, Barbara Hutton, saloon-keeper Joseph Dean, Truman Capote, and Bill Bird who was Hemingway s pal and first publisher. Tangier s true-to-life subculture and the operations of its smuggling fleet are portrayed here in a way never before described.

John L. Moore served in both the United States Navy (in World War II) and the United States Army (Korean War). In addition to his stint abroad as a smuggler aboard a ship that was once the pride of the British Merchant Navy, he found employment with a survey crew and worked as a construction foreman in French Morocco. Returning to the States, he became a circus hand, a cabdriver, and a railroad worker in Wyoming, and an account supervisor for a New Jersey Telephone Company. Attending night school at the Seton Hall School of Law, he passed the bar exams in 1957 and, after admission to the bar, joined a prestigious law firm in New Jersey. He was admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States and opened his own law firm, spending 35 years as a trial attorney specializing in civil and criminal law and defending the rights of the underdog and criminals of every type (with the exception of smugglers).
