His father is a wealthy numbers banker; his mother, a very successful, but very law-abiding, businesswoman. Nesta Ali s life is one of hell-raising and paradoxical privilege. With no shortage of talent and ambition, Ali sets out on a star career in journalism. But there s a problem: His rise to the top of the drug game is happening even faster. Never a man to ignore the knock of opportunity, Ali will bring his A-game to the more profitable and dangerous world of crime. Based on true events, The Nostrildamus Document seems at times more like a Hollywood thriller. Cascadian paints a crystal-clear picture of the biographical exploits of perhaps drug culture s most pivotal player.

Not since Clockers or Homocide has there been such an insider's book. Told from a mercilessly real perspective-that of a smart, scheming, disturbed drug dealer, realistically flawed, who is able to invoke both sympathy and horror- the book is an explosive, cinematic tale that sets a new literary standard. --as seen in The New York Times Book Review
It s refreshing to read the memoir of a hardcore thug who, despite a jailhouse conversion, makes no apologies-and asks no forgiveness-for his willingness to exploit the weakness of others. The sharply written narrative is by turns fascinating and repulsive, intriguing and reprehensible. --Kirkus Discoveries
