Patrick Hoffman follows up his sensational debut The White Van with Every Man A Menace, the inside story of an increasingly ruthless ecstasy-smuggling ring. San Francisco is about to receive the biggest delivery of MDMA to hit the West Coast in years. Fresh from prison, Raymond Gaspar follows his imprisoned boss’s orders to check on their once-reliable buyers and distributors, but quickly finds himself caught in a web of backstabbing and deceit. 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—happiness sold by the brick and paid for with bloodshed and betrayal.

Patrick Hoffman is a writer and private investigator based in Brooklyn. His first novel, The White Van, was a finalist for the Crime Writers' Association Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award and was named a Wall Street Journal Best Book of the Year. He was born in San Francisco and lived there for half his life, working as an investigator, both privately and at the San Francisco Public Defender's Office.
