The Last Florida Boy

By Tom Gribbin

The names might be changed, but no one is innocent.

Before cartels, before terrorists, before gangs, guns and violence – even before cell phones – there were just Florida boys smuggling pot up and down the coast, living the free-spirited life of boozy pirates and beach-town heroes. But the times changed, and some never saw the party ending. This is the story of alliances forged, friendships tested and lessons learned – about reefer, the law, love, stand-up comedy, and a little golf. In The Last Florida Boy, John Bellamy’s quixotic journey takes him from dizzying highs to desperate lows as he contends with an era fast disappearing over the horizon like the fading colors of a Gulf of Mexico sunset.
