UNDER THE TITLE NARCOTICS: AMERICA'S PERIL
"This book is a documentary set down with the drama and pace of a thriller. Its villains are drug peddlers at home and abroad, its heroes the Federal agents who wage a ceaseless war against them."
In boxes labeled "machinery," in secret rooms of ocean liners, in bandages, brassieres and hollow crutches, dope worth millions crosses American borders. School girls prostitute themselves for a "fix," honest men turn gunmen to support "the habit" -while "pushers" prosper in a deadly racket.
Can America survive the international dope conspiracy? Here is the answer in a challenging, courageous book that sounds the battle cry against the underworld.
