Publisher's Summary

This is the incredible true story as told in Wired, Vogue, Forbes, and USA Today. In development to be a major motion picture! 

In 2011, the Silk Road website was set up on the dark web in the hopes of becoming the Amazon of the drug world. A charismatic young entrepreneur known only as the Dread Pirate Roberts quickly built a client base of more than a million customers and created a billion-dollar company that supplied drugs, weapons, false IDs, and anonymous bank accounts to the underworld. 

This is the true story of how a disabled Mormon grandfather found himself in the middle of it all. Arrested by a crooked DEA agent, framed for stealing from drug lords, he quickly found himself trapped in a dark web of lies, theft, and murder.

Excellent Story

Curtis Green's story is one that needs to be read or heard by all Americans. It's disgraceful what this man was put through at the hands of our government. I'm glad he wrote about it, so that it's ironed into the history book. Curtis's call for a moral revolution in this country is one that I get behind 100%.

Awful

Self-serving crap from a "good Mormon Grandpa" who expects us to believe he had no idea Silk Road was primarily a drug site even though he was arrested with his face covered in cocaine... cool story bro.

Tell and money I can not get back

This book is read by the author. However, when he's reading it, it really sounds as though he's reading it for the very first time. His overall story makes it seem like he was the only person on the Silk Road website that was advising everyone of doing anything illegal. He tells it as though he had no clue as to what was going on in there. "Some much more than they're telling you"... say what it really is, a backstory of your religious upbringing, the boy scout you make yourself out to be. You could not have been that clueless. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS BOOK. And how he says he instantly knew who Knob was the minute he laid eyes on Carl Force... Please.
