I heard an interview with Ken Goddard on NPR this past year and have wanted to read one of his novels. In some minor respects from the story you can tell that it's written in the 80s (cultural references, mostly). However the plot was engaging and I couldn't put my Kindle down for a week reading this! Definitely helped fill the hole that the end of Breaking Bad left.
I've been a fan of Ken Goddard for YEARS!! This book is a great read and makes some major comments about drugs, drug use, and who we are in America. Everyone is looking for the 'holy grail' and when an associate Prof. at the local college finds it, the whole town turns upside down trying to get hold of it! Great book from a great author, just wish he would write a few more, SOON!!!
A gripping and well written novel about how one drug lord goes rogue, decides to outflank the drug cartels AND drug enforcement officials, and create a product that would revolutionize the drug trade as we know it. Greed, circumstance and events make this book a good read.
I also read this many years ago & found a cheap enough copy here on Amazon to get it. I forgot how brilliant this is. It's hard to put down once you start reading it. LOL. This an interesting combination of subjects based on a total screw up by one idiot wanna be criminal...It's worth reading. Suspenseful & humorous with some real scientific & societal truth behind it. What a long strange trip it's been :)
Wonderful book written by a well versed and descriptive author. The attention to detail and police procedure is second to none and enhances the reader's self made visual image of the story unfolding in front of them
