A country of white sand beaches and palm trees, the Seychelles is an exotic tourist destination. It also happened to be a haven for international criminals. Ambassador David Fischer describes his time there like something out of “an Eric Ambler novel, where an innocent character suddenly stumbles on something, and he becomes involved in a huge conspiracy.” Fischer became a character in a much larger story that included fraudulent banking, Mob activity, money laundering, drug smuggling, murder, and threats against his own son, much of which involved France Albert Rene, the President of the Seychelles.
