Book with cat: Scared

Real life horror stories...

Millions of people are addicted to a drug that literally eats them alive.

There's a new drug, Krokodil, made from codeine, gasoline, paint thinner, hydrochloric acid, iodine, and red phosphorous (from matchstick heads).

...once injected it begins eating the user’s body from the inside out, causing blood vessels to burst and surrounding tissue to die. Essentially a corrosive acid with opiate effects

Krokodil gets its name because users develop scaly skin like a crocodile.

How about more disturbing Krokodil images for a Friday morning? "What was first thought to be a horrific STD infection turned out to be the effects of the 17-year old injecting krokodil directly into her genitals."

The article reports it's unlikely to become a common drug in America, but that makes it no less horrifying.

Free book alert!

Apologies for multiple posts this morning. I didn't want to edit the previous one to tack this on, since it's a very different subject and I didn't want people to miss the offer.

The Cruel Path, which I reviewed here, is now free for download! Click to go to Amazon to download it.

Cruel Path is a novella and a prequel to The Narrowing Path, which I gave great love in my review here. (And I liked Cruel Path even better!)

Both are very very much worth reading, and Cruel Path is now free, so there's no reason not to give it a try! (Assuming you have an ereader. :) )

Apologies to the people who already downloaded Cruel Path for 99 cents! Hopefully you thought it was still worth it.
