About this title


Book by Stratton, Richard

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.
