Every Man a Menace

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Patrick Hoffman burst onto the crime fiction scene with The White Van, a captivating thriller set in the back streets of San Francisco, which was named a Wall Street Journal best mystery of the year and was shortlisted for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award. Hoffman returns 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. Raymond Gaspar, just out of prison, is sent to the city by his boss - still locked up on the inside - to check in on the increasingly erratic dealer expected to take care of distribution. In Miami, meanwhile, the man responsible for shipping the drugs from Southeast Asia to the Bay Area has just met the girl of his dreams - a woman who can't seem to keep her story straight. And thousands of miles away, in Bangkok, someone farther up the supply chain, a former conscript of the Israeli army, is about to make a phonecall that will put all their lives at risk.

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 - pure happiness sold by the brick, brought to market by bloodshed and betrayal.

From Publishers Weekly

15 August 2016 – Hoffman follows his well-received debut, 2014's The White Van, with an unrelentingly grim noir set in San Francisco that explores the violent underside of the drug trade from a variety of overlapping perspectives. The first section, which is the best, introduces small-time criminal Raymond Gaspar, who's about to complete a four-year prison term that was the upshot of his arrest for possession of crystal meth and trying to sell a stolen boat. After Raymond's release, Arthur, a power broker who "could make a call to the Black Guerilla Family or the Aryan Brotherhood and get action from either group," turns to him for help. Arthur still has his hand in selling Ecstasy, but he's not comfortable with the middlemen he's been working with. He asks Raymond to get to know both Gloria Ocampo, who brings the narcotic into San Francisco, and her buyer, Shadrack Pullman, so that Raymond can protect Arthur's interests. Though the format and basic story line are nothing new, Hoffman, a private investigator, makes his version feel real.
