Overview

A shocking glimpse into the crazy lives of drug addicted prostitutes. You'll never look at heroin addicts the same way again.



Oliver moves from New York to Florida. Battling with depression, he gets sucked into the seedy underworld of Fort Myers, where he encounters a number of female drug addicts. He empathizes with them because of his own traumatic past. Oliver feels compelled to try to help them escape the addict lifestyle, but learns the hard way that he is in way over his head.



"A truly fascinating and unexpected look at the darker side of addiction."

★★★★★ - A. Allyson, Goodreads

Dear Reader,

what you're about to read is the bizarre true story of my life. This is the second book in a trilogy.

The first book, Going To New York, is about growing up in Europe as a teenage hacker, and my life as a comic artist and self-made Internet millionaire in New York.

This second book, The Heroin Scene in Fort Myers, is about my years in Florida, during the Great American Opioid Epidemic. It was the lowest point of my life. After my divorce, I was struggling with severe depression and was trapped in a self-destructive cycle of codependence with not one but several drug addicts.

The third and final book, Finding Happiness in Los Angeles, is about my new life as a writer in California.

But first: the Florida years. This book is not for the faint of heart. It's not a pretty story. It involves lots of sex, drugs, and really bad choices. We Europeans are not fans of censorship. We don't have a habit of bleeping words on TV, like Americans do, or blanking out words because someone might be offended. So there is no flowery language. No harmless euphemisms. It's the unvarnished truth in all its brutal ugliness.

The first book ended, when my drug-addicted girlfriend Alice ran away from rehab, and I decided to move to Fort Myers without her. And this book continues exactly where we left off.

Oliver
