Overview

A must read for all who work in Addiction Treatment, the Criminal Justice System, or who participate in 12 Step Programs.
Harley Cisco has been associated with the Criminal Justice System for thirty-three years; he is a difficult person. He has failed drug and alcohol treatment six times. Cisco has been on parole for ten years after serving a fifteen year sentence for felony manslaughter. Cisco is in trouble again. The County Prosecutor is using Cisco's record and his addictive personality as motive to charge Cisco with Second Degree Murder.
A Coroner's Inquest is called to determine cause of death - was the death a justifiable homicide - or did Harley Cisco use the opportunity to intentionally kill again? On trial is the very concept of the addictive personality. On trial is the criminal justice system approach to drug and alcohol treatment.
While a work of fiction, Cisco represents truth.
