Smashed, a novel by W.R. German
New York City in the year 2040: dark humor and tension mix as undercover NYPD lieutenants Perry Donahue and Richard Hayte must use every trick in their repertoires as they face the biggest challenges of their careers:
Wolfpacks of white teen punks roam the streets, systematically ransacking the elite stores of Manhattan, but suddenly they start disappearing, and no one knows why;
A new street drug called “smash” is sweeping the city. It defies chemical analysis and leaves no trace in the body;
A car virus epidemic is sweeping the East Coast, and no street is safe from the plague:
To cope with it all, they have only their mandatory psychoanalysis sessions, but even those prove to have hidden dangers.
Smashed is where the cops ultimately prove to be as bizarre as the criminals they are chasing, a twisted tale full of dark, savage humor.
