Boston narcotics detective Eddy Harkness is on the case again, and this time the soul of the city is at stake. When a late-summer hurricane slams into Boston, Detective Eddy Harkness and his Narco-Intel crew are thrown into the eye of a very different kind of storm. Dark Horse — an especially pure and deadly brand of heroin — has infiltrated the gritty Lower South End. Harkness soon finds that the drug is also at the center of an audacious land grab by the city’s corrupt new mayor and his shadowy power brokers. Meanwhile, Lower South End residents displaced by the storm use an obscure bylaw to move into Eddy’s hometown, and soon enough tensions are running high along Nagog’s tree-lined streets.

Thought provoking and emotionally inspirational, this poetry is truly a "new age" style. Gary was born to middle class parents in the very quiet west end of Toronto, Canada in 1950. His home bordered the Etobicoke ravine where he grew up playing hockey on its open-air creek. He eventually graduated high school two years early because of academic achievements. He went on to marry and have two beautiful children and moved to a rural Ontario town to raise them. He coached and played hockey for years until the children were grown.
