From "a rising star in the crime fiction world" (Hollywood Reporter), Every Man a Menace is a vital, edgy novel that tells the inside story of a high-stakes ecstasy-smuggling ring. San Francisco is about to receive the biggest delivery of MDMA to hit the West Coast in years. Raymond Gaspar, just out of prison, is sent by his boss--who is still on the inside--to check on the increasingly erratic dealer expected to take care of the drug's distribution. Meanwhile in Miami, the nightclub owner responsible for getting the ecstasy across the Pacific has just met the girl of his dreams--a Brazilian woman with a man's name who can't seem to keep her story straight. And thousands of miles away, in Bangkok, someone farther up the supply chain is about to make a phone call that will put all their lives at risk. Stretching from the Golden Triangle of Southeast Asia to the Golden Gate of San Francisco, Every Man a Menace offers an unflinching account of the making, moving, and selling of the drug known as Molly.
