"My jaw dropped when I first heard his story. Never dreamed I’d become a character in it." "Have you ever had a feeling or nudge so strong you couldn't ignore it? Call it intuition, your gut, your inner voice of reason (or whatever) barking in your ear to take immediate action on something you couldn't possibly understand at the time? I have. And when I acted on it, it changed my life and that of an infamous prison inmate. This is our true story." - co-author MayCay Beeler

"Buccaneer-The Provocative Odyssey of Jack Reed- Adventurer, Drug Smuggler, and Pilot Extraordinaire" by Jack Carlton Reed and MayCay Beeler is the stunning multi award-winning true crime tale of a convicted Medellin Cartel cocaine pilot/smuggler. As best friend and co-defendant of drug baron Carlos Lehder, associate of Pablo Escobar, Jack Reed becomes the victim of a tragic judicial sentencing mistake in a historic trial laden with hype. The media circus that follows contributes to the longest most publicized drug trial in U.S. history. Judicial misconduct runs rampant. What happens to this prison inmate will make you weep and smile in this stunning biography. Readers initially love to hate him, then hate to love him in the true twist of fate ending.

Fans of Netflix Narcos and cocaine cowboy movies may be surprised by this raw and honest personal account. Not what the media led us to believe! Decades before Donald Trump would coin the term “fake news”, it was likely a star player in this high profile trial. Our readers sum it up: "Unforgiven by society as a hedonistic drug smuggler and daredevil, Jack Reed continues to raise his unbroken spirit above the realities of prison life. He finds an unlikely champion in MayCay Beeler, an award-winning television personality and record-breaking professional pilot. Their wings bring them together, entwine their lives in a final victory that spirals both Jack and MayCay into freedom, in every respect. There are many extraordinary lessons learned by reading this 5-star book."
