Of course, as a Californian, I knew meth was in our community, but I am stunned by the seriousness of the problem as it rages like wildfire across the country. This book holds the horrific numbers up and makes us look at real cases, murdered girlfriends or tortured children, whether we want to see such horrors, or not.
The reporting style also helped me see what we all owe to the courage, heroism, and determination of our lawmen,whether police, sheriff's department, or highway patrol, and the struggle of our legal system to deal with those methamphetamine has turned into monsters. My respect for these men and women is now enormous.
Anderson also gives us hope - some states have fought the curse of meth by posting billboard images of ruined faces,ruined lives, victims of shadow people's hallucinations, reducing the numbers of new addicts. Shadow People should be required reading for every High School student, so they will know what they are risking if tempted by meth's seduction or by the drug culture itself.
This is a fine work of investigative journalism written by a crime reporter who saw what he writes about so well.
