Eating Smoke free pdf In 1995, Chris Thrall left the Royal Marines to find his fortune in Hong Kong. Instead, he went through a bizarre series of jobs while becoming increasingly addicted to crystal methamphetamine. Soon he began working for the 14K, Hong Kong's largest crime family, as a doorman in one of their nightclubs in the Wan Chai red-light district. Dealing with homelessness, violence and the 'foreign triad' - a secretive ex-pat clique which, unbeknown to the world, works hand-in-hand with the Chinese mafia - he had to survive in the world's most unforgiving city, addicted to the world's most dangerous drug.

About Chris Thrall

Chris Thrall was born in Kent, UK. At eighteen, he joined the Royal Marine Commandos. Following active service in the Northern Ireland Conflict and training in Arctic warfare and survival, he earned his parachutist's 'wings' and went on to serve as part of a high-security detachment onboard an aircraft carrier. In 1995, Chris moved to Hong Kong to oversee the Asia-Pacific expansion of a successful network-marketing operation he'd built, part-time, while serving in the Forces. Less than a year later, he was homeless, hooked on crystal methamphetamine and working for the 14K, Hong Kong's largest triad crime family, as a doorman in Wanchai's infamous red-light district. 'Eating Smoke', a humorous yet deeply moving first book, is his account of what happened.
