A priest in the jungle of narcotics, thievery, prostitution...
... the three-headed evil that Father Daniel Egan, "The Junkie Priest," is fighting with kindness, understanding, and religion. For more than a decade, Father Egan has waged his battle to save unfortunate women addicted to the ravages of narcotics and the ignorance, apathy, and prejudice of the public.
This book will introduce you to Father Egan, to some women you'll think more fictional than real, to incredible human situations that are more tragic than you can imagine, and to a social problem that is sordid -- but very real and true, and very much in need of your help and understanding.
This is the hazy, enslaved world of opium, marijuana, heroin, cocaine, and morphine -- the Junkie Priest's parish.
