Annotation:
Nick Reding provides a fascinating biography of Oelwein, Iowa, a small town which was beset by an influx of bootleg crystal methamphetamine manufacturers, who were drawn to its isolated locale and impoverished social standing. Reding reveals how this addictive epidemic has altered the lives of various Oelwein characters, including debilitated criminals, disfigured speed freaks, a good-hearted local doctor, and a hard-nosed sheriff. In addition to these compelling individual stories, Reding's cogent examination of the rise of this poisonous substance also reveals how several major pharmaceutical companies have actively blocked legislation which would make it more difficult to purchase the cold medicines necessary to produce the deadly drug. Selected by the New York Times Book Review as a Notable Book of 2009.
