Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Sonia Burnes-Downes, leader of a drug ring catering to New York socialites, is arrested by DEA agents at her Upper West Side brownstone. Remorseless and refusing to turn in her cohorts, she is defended by the improbable Arthur Grimm (attorney, private investigator, ex-Defense Intelligence agent, Mafia liaison, Vietnam vet, and avid pot-smoker). Stratton, winner of a 1990 Pen American Writers' Prison Writing award, writes with convincing authority of the inner machinations of the government's failing war on drugs. (Stratton wrote the book while in prison for conspiring to import marijuana and hashish.) This controversial portrait of society's frayed moral fabric should enjoy heavy circulation, and deserves a place within most fiction collections.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Down & dirty, in the streets & hip pockets of those in the drug world, truth telling and well crafted, this story kept me up all night. Couldn't put it down. Aside from the genre, it's great writing. Is jail what it takes to discipline a born writer & put him in print & on the screen? Hard to believe it's a first novel. No wonder the author always has work.
