"Case study of a small town in Iowa overrun by meth and how they cleaned up much of it. At one time this town of 6000 was busting one meth lab a week. Meth in rural America is a huge problem and tied in with a lot of the economic changes (mostly negative) in the last few decades. Drugs (and alcohol) were a big issue in the small town I grew up in also, I can completely understand how this happens. Small towns are not as bucolic as people may think. This is a good book."
