The new edition of “Gringo: My Life on the Edge as an International Fugitive” by Dan “Tito” Davis with a new and updated front and back cover, reached the number one best-selling position in nine different Amazon book categories, and in was in top 10 best-sellers for many other categories; becoming one of the top 50 bestselling Kindle books overall. This new attention to “Gringo” comes as Dan “Tito” Davis is on a world tour and preparing for a new audio book for “Gringo”.
Dan “Tito” Davis was on the run from the United States government for thirteen years before being renditioned from Venezuela by mercenary forces that turned him over to United States Homeland Security. During his trial Davis was not allowed to include any statement about his extra-judicial kidnapping from a country that doesn’t have an extradition treaty with the United States. Most people are aware of rendition when suspected terrorism suspects have been captured on foreign soil and transferred to Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, or to secret prison sites around the world. Davis wants to bring the public’s attention to the illegal use of rendition on American citizens.
During his ten year prison sentence, Dan “Tito” Davis penned a 700-page manuscript, which chronicled his thirteen year period on the run from the United States federal government. While living in a halfway house in Wyoming, Davis worked to turn his raw material into an action-packed memoir, which includes Davis’s life before he went on the lam—how he was making $200,000 a week in college manufacturing White Crosses (speed) and distributing them across the country via the Bandidos motorcycle gang; when he was trafficking thousands of pounds of high grade pot through tunnels and on horse trailers; and how he was set up by his childhood friend.
Davis is now on a world tour, promoting Gringo and visiting those places that were out of reach while he was on the run, or revisiting old refuges to see them again without the fear of arrest. Along the way he’s met with the Dali Lama and presented him with a copy of Gringo as well. New projects include a blog of his visits to some of the world’s still most dangerous places and a podcast with the interesting people that call them home.
Dan “Tito” Davis comes from a town in South Dakota so small that everyone knows their neighbor’s cat’s name. But once he got out, he made some noise. While at UNLV, he started manufacturing White Crosses, aka speed, and soon had the Bandidos motorcycle club distributing ten million pills a week. After serving a five year prison sentence, he got into the weed game, but soon after was set up on a phony charge by his childhood friend. Facing thirty years, Davis slipped into Mexico, not knowing a word of Spanish. He became Tito and began a thirteen-year odyssey that led him to an underground hideout for the Medellín Cartel in Colombia; through the jungles of the Darien Gap, the world’s most dangerous passageway; being interrogated in Cuba, and much more. Davis is discussing the rights to his story with multiple studios, agents and actors while he finds the best outlet for it. He can be reached through gringobook.com
