Jack O'Connell: Box Nine

Box Nine


A stunningly original nightmare novel about the impact of a new synthetic drug - Lingo - on the depressed New England factory town of Quinsigamond, where it was secretly developed. Besides offering a potent high, Lingo also delivers a shot to the brain cells governing lingusitic comprehension and verbal skill. Until murderous rages and babbling insanity take over, this mind- expanding feature makes the drug dangerously seductive to the unusually literate cops, scientists and dope dealers competing to find its distribution source.
