The Jones Men

Author:  Vern E. Smith

Year:  1974

The Jones Men - Vern E. Smith

Synopsis:  A young drug dealer tries to raise his status in the game by ripping off (and pushing out) the biggest drug dealer in the city.


Notes:  This is a great story about the drug trade and the cutthroat nature of dealers and junkies alike.  Surprisingly, the author didn’t set out to write a novel but instead started out with the intention of doing a story for a news magazine on the heroin crisis in a major urban city.  Read more about that here or here.
