Fauser, Jorg: The Snowman (24.09.08)

The story of a petty criminal who lucks upon a large amount of cocaine which he then tries to sell. The efforts to do this
are conveyed ina way that well supports the nervousness of the lead as he blunders around Europe in his efforts to make
a fortune without getting caught by the original owners of the drug. The author was a drug addict and much of the tale
reads almost as an autobiography. In some ways, this enhances the telling and certainly gives and indication of the febrile
state that drugs can produce.
