Howard Finkelstein, the subject of a chilling profile of recovery from cocaine’s destructive power in Snow Blind by Douglas Kalajian, has finally realized his dream to take over the Broward County, Fla. Public Defender’s Office. Finkelstein was the subject of an insightful profile in last Sunday’s Miami Herald by reporter Sara Olkon. Snow Blind was published by RavensYard, remains a strong seller from Amazon and is a favorite among law enforcement officials, drug recovery professionals and those familiar with, as one reviewer put it, the "wild geography of South Florida...Kalajian will shock the hell out of a witch." Quillnews is a long time colleague and pal of Palm Beach Post reporter Doug Kalajian, Snow Blind’s author, and enthusiastically recommends this cracker jack book.
Howard Finkelstein’s story is a story of the seductive power of drugs, combined with the potential for recovery when an addict has the will and the support of loving family and friends. Broward County can be proud of their public defender. Don’t be surprised if you see Snow Blind snatched up by the movies someday!
