9780878501809: Honest Thieves

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.

About the Author:

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).
