I thought this was going to be your average everyday thriller. Lucky me. It is a powerful novel - it starts with a bang then works its way back to the beginning, telling the story of how that big bang came to be -- that describes what I now believe to be the true history of the drug world. If you liked Blow, or Traffic, you will LOVE this book.
