It’s a heartbreaking story of what one woman does for love, without it being a ‘romance. She and her partner’s exploits while employed by the Tyler, Texas Police Department are the inspiration behind her book, “Rush”. Addicts take themselves exceedingly seriously.

I’d read it again. A certain amount of class bias seems to exist in this book, if not in police departments.

JUNKIE STORY GETS UPDATE, SEX CHANGE RUSH. BY KIM WOZENCRAFT. RANDOM HOUSE. $18.95.
Read this in the late 80’s. The end was a serious downer, but it all worked. But it is a pretty good read, as they say, and at least you will learn how to do heroin, a recipe for meth, how to beat a lie detector and one version of the source of Steely Dan’s name. Anyway, the book was about an undercover narcotics agent and some of the trials and tribulations she and her partner went through. He tapped out the dope onto the framed photo of her winning a race in high school.
Wozencraft’s prose is earnest and humorless and she is not much given to understatement.
