Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

is an urban half-world of drug pushers and users, of pimps and prostitutes and narcotics detectives, laid bare in this explosive novel. From The Panic, the time of no dope, to The Man, who controls its ebb and flow on the streets, is a gripping work of heightened, hellish realism—a harrowing masterpiece of drug literature.

Synopsis:

“Not even Nelson Algren’s burns with the ferocious intensity you’ll find here. [Cooper] writes with a personal authority that can only be called shattering and the searing exactness of one who has lived through the horror.” —
