Anything that promises to make us better, richer, cleverer is always seductive and powerful. But what happens when the transforming agent is produced in the laboratory of a pharmaceutical corporation? By chance, Eddie Spinola comes across 200 doses of the drug MDT-48 and turns his life upside-down.
Eddie, a small time New Yorker who earns his living pounding out copy for illustrated manuals finds his life changes dramatically when a drug dealer introduces him to an amazing new designer drug that enables his resources of intelligence and drive function with amazing efficiency. When his dealer is murdered he escapes with a large stash and starts to make the kind of money about which he has only dreamed. However, there is a downside of blinding headaches, irrational behaviour - and worse is to follow in this high-voltage debut thriller.
