In Drugs, Death, and Auras: A Story of Love, new author Brian L. Murphy writes an engrossing coming of age suspense thriller set in the 1970s. Wildly taut, this compelling, fast-paced, character-driven plot examines how men wield power for good-and evil. Based in San Francisco, The Committee is comprised of elders who are bent on making the world a better place matter what the cost. When members Arthur Gorman and John Ferrel hatch an urthodox plan to rid the streets of heroin users, they enlist the aid of a chemical researcher who discovers a way to lace drugs, specifically the East Coast heroin supply. When their old friend, Ron Patterson, uncovers the mass murderous plan, he enlists the help of Tim Colly, a recent graduate he mentors. As the committee members, each with the power to interpret auras, choose sides, one thing is certain, the power to see intention and purpose is both a blessing and a curse.
Brian L. Murphy teaches Economics, Government, and History in San Jose California. Drugs, Death, and Auras: A Story of Love is his first book.
