The sensational sequel to ‘Papillon'.

‘Banco' continues the adventures of Henri Charriere - nicknamed Papillon - in Venezuela, where he has finally won his freedom after thirteen years of escape and imprisonment. Despite his resolve to become an honest man, Charriere is soon involved in hair-raiding exploits with goldminers, gamblers, bank-robbers and revolutionaries - robbing and being robbed, his lust for life as strong as ever. He also runs night clubs in Caracas until an earthquake ruins him in 1967 - when he decides to write the book that brings his international fame.

Industry Reviews

A fascinating sequel to Papillon. Still driven by his burning sense of injustice at wrongful imprisonment, he indulges in shady and outright criminal activities to raise funds for his return to Paris. Venezuelan life and South American stories are wonderfully described as he moves towards reconciliation with starting anew. (Kirkus UK)
