This streetwise novel chronicles the rise and fall of Lennie Jack, a twenty-six-year-old Vietnam veteran and mid-level heroin dealer itching to knock the powerful Willis McDaniel off his perch as the number-one drug kingpin. It plunges the reader into the subculture of addicts, dealers, and corrupt cops as Lennie Jack's bold and methodical challenge builds to a frightening climax.About the Author:
