As Top Amazon Reviewer Grady Harp put it .
What sets Andrew s novel apart from other recovery stories is his deep understanding of the physiochemical aspects of substance abuse and addiction Seaward not only understands the socioeconomic psychological and yes criminal impact these people create he also displays such a profound understanding of the physiological medical aspects of addiction that we are left to wonder if he hasn t been down the path of his characters himself
