"The Chronicles of Cadillac Dave: True Confessions of a Drug Kingpin" is a controversial true life memoir of life inside the drugs, sex & rock 'n roll counterculture of the 1960s and 70s. Johnny Walker is a troubled college kid who just wants to get high and get laid, but his passionate search for personal freedom leads him from one unforeseen adventure to another. When the police mistake him for a drug kingpin, their treacherous sting operations accidentally launches the largest marijuana smuggling operation in West Texas. It's a classic example of the Law of Unintended Consequences at work.

Released from prison, Dave soon starts dealing all over again armed with nothing but his knowledge and his nerve. Pretty soon he's handling tons of Colombian pot and the finest cocaine in Miami. He has a witchy Atlanta dealer chick as his new partner and life is looking good, until a series of gruesome murders brings down more heat than he can handle. Dave is getting vibed-in to strange spiritual forces he never knew existed before, but can they help him overcome all his problems?

Finding an unexpected Mafia connection leads Dave to take a new path. But the course he chooses brings him into conflict with supernatural forces he never saw coming. Walking a thin line between the Devil and imminent destruction, Dave snaps under the strain. Miraculously he survives the satanic encounter but his psyche is shattered. A new lover gives him a clue to the hidden secret weapon that can defeat his enemies and solve his legal problems. But the price is outrageously high. Will he be able to pay it?

About the Author

The Chronicles of Cadillac Dave: True Confessions of a Drug Kingpin is based on the true-life story of a large-scale drug dealer in the 1970s counterculture. This first-person chronicle is a cross between a contemporary Catcher in the Rye and a counterculture Forrest Gump. Defying conventional genre classification, it is a mixture of action adventure story, true crime expose, and sociopolitical commentary, written as an autobiographical narrative by an Old West-type outlaw. It abundantly delivers on the promise of its subtitle: true confessions of real life events.

This is the nitty-gritty hard-core reality of a life lived outside the law, with all the thrills, perils and sorrows that go with it. The protagonist Johnny Walker, an alienated youth hardened by social rejection, struggles to define himself in a bid for unlimited personal freedom. In keeping with the spirit of his age, the personal truly does become political as he embraces the newly emergent Youth Revolution and the underground counterculture.

He went from a newly turned-on college hippie just looking to get high and get laid to an escaped fugitive desperado and drug kingpin. As his life in the fast lane picked up pace, Dave raced through a series of sleek cars, beautiful women and potentially deadly encounters with some of the most dangerous men in the Western Hemisphere. He moved into a brutal world of deception, danger and death, very different from the peace, love and brotherhood he initially envisioned.

This true-life American saga gives an unvarnished view inside the youth counterculture of the 1960s and 1970s, from dropout beatnik poets and peace-child folk singers to the hardcore SDS student radicals driving the antiwar movement, and then moving on to fugitive marijuana smuggling on the Mexican border and high-level cocaine dealing in Miami and Atlanta . . . with stops along the way in mansions, brothels, prisons and psychiatric hospitals.

This was his life. This is his true story. Some names have been changed to protect the innocent -- and the guilty. But the names of the many famous and/or notorious personalities who touched Dave’s life along the way have been left unchanged.

DISCLAIMER: This controversial narrative is not for the faint of heart. It contains frank depictions of sex, drugs and violence. Those offended by confronting such human reality should not read this book.
