FINALIST - 2022 KINDLE BOOK AWARDS, NONFICTION
Lynn Walker watched her dad, John, deteriorate from Miami undercover narcotics agent to drug smuggler, from protective father to monster-a very charming monster. By the time she was in high school, her dad was in prison for smuggling 12,000 pounds of drugs. There, John made a connection with a powerful Colombian drug lord. Within months of being paroled, John waltzed back into his kids' lives, dishing out pure, Colombian cocaine to Lynn and launching her brother's coke-dealing career. After a few years of abusing coke together, Lynn lost everything and was forced to choose between her life and her father.
Midnight Calling: A Memoir of a Drug Smuggler's Daughter is a shocking, true story that reads like fiction: a plucky girl navigating a bewildering childhood, Lynn's descent into her dad's covert world-full of endless, pure Colombian cocaine but never the love she craved-and her attempts to escape the charm and hell of her father and recover from drug and alcohol addiction.
Jaw-dropping, emotionally raw and heart-breaking, Midnight Calling is a true story about family bonds, addiction and the price of holding on when it's time to let go.
A real-life story that reads like fiction for fans of Breaking Bad, The Glass Castle and High Achiever. Brace yourself for this shocking, true story.
