Integrity is a word which was uttered on nightly newscasts for months after an anonymous but calculating White House intern introduced herself to the President. Integrity is a word emblazoned on the front page of every law enforcement manual in the country and it’s a concept affirmed by every individual who ever accepts a position of public trust. Its also a notion which is the focus of The Powder, Their Paper and Pools of Blood. This novel is a first person account of a DEA Agent, initially an honorable young man with noble intentions to pursue a vocation in federal law enforcement. As his career progresses, he permits himself to become seduced by the enviable lifestyles of those he investigates. He begins by pocketing purposeless trinkets and trivial amounts of money, rationalizing his behavior each and every time he consummates an act that he recognizes to be morally repugnant. The ease by which the Agent, Mark Connors, consummates his thefts nourishes his appetite for more lucrative and exciting acts of dishonesty until he is a witness to the most deplorable act one human being can do to another. The Powder, Their Paper and Pools of Blood is a dark and captivating slice of fiction which includes accurate information about real tactics employed by the agents and offices of the Drug Enforcement Administration.

“Not only is this book the best sort of true-crime writing, but it is also a stunning exploration of the concept of manhood in America” (Sebastian Junger, New York Times–bestselling author of War). Through six detailed accounts of murders involving gay men, American Honor Killings examines the facts of cases that are too often politicized, sensationalized, or simply ignored. David McConnell researched killings from small-town Alabama to San Quentin’s death row, and here recounts both notorious and lesser-known crimes. We may tend to think these stories involve either the perpetrator’s internal struggle over his own identity or a victim’s fatally miscalculated proposition. They’re almost never that simple. These riveting narratives reveal how different factors played into each case, among them ideas and beliefs about masculinity. Together, they form a secret American history of rage and desire. In each story, victims, murderers, friends, and relatives come breathtakingly alive. The result is a true-crime book of unusual power, depth, and psychological insight—“a journalistic tour de force made all the more impressive by jailhouse interviews” (Publishers Weekly). “A masterpiece of reportage . . . At turns heartbreaking and terrifying . . . If Truman Capote were alive today, he would die of envy. David McConnell has taken the mantle of great American nonfiction writer.” —Evan Wright, author of Generation Kill
