Mr Clean - Cash, Drugs and the CIA: The True Story of a Master Money Launderer
What started innocently enough led Bruce Aitken to moving millions of dollars for some of the world's most notorious and shady characters - including the CIA, governments officials, financiers and well-known drug lords. It was a life of first-class flights and five-stars hotels - a lavish, globe-trotting lifestyle, yes, but one always fraught with risk too.
And in the end, it all caught up with him. Aitken was illegally kidnapped by American agents, and suddenly found himself staring down the possibility of spending the rest of his life behind bars.
Foreword by Howard Marks aka "Mr Nice",
a famous international cannabis smuggler and the best-selling author of several books
“I first met Bruce in the early 1980s ... and we immediately formed a solid rapport. He was a master of his chosen trade and helped me clean up some cash that I had earned through smuggling. Reading about his two decades of laundering vividly brought back to me all the excitement, glamor and sheer fun that an international jet-setting life of crime invariably imparts [as well as] the paranoia and nerve-racking horror of his chosen lifestyle.”
Mr. Clean has been optioned for TV series development by Hong Kong production company Moonlight Entertainment Ltd, with Oscar-winning Producer/Director Malcolm Clarke & Producer Stuart Sender attached.
