" When long-time Kentucky sheriff Lew Mattock is shot in the head by a confused, drug-addicted teenager, chief deputy Harlan Dupee is tasked with solving the crime. Every criminal the sheriff ever locked up is a suspect, but as Harlan examines the circumstances surrounding Lew's death, he finds out his former boss wasn't an innocent. Harlan's search takes him headlong into the county's burgeoning prescription drug trade, from wooded ATV parks and tobacco farms to riverboat casinos, from the slanted steps of trailer parks to the manicured porches prominent citizens. As the evidence brings Harlan closer to his unlikely suspect, he comes to doubt the law and its ability to solve the county's problems. The More They Disappear explores the violent years following Purdue Pharma's release of OxyContin. It is an unnerving tale of addiction and loss, the battle to overcome the darkest parts of ourselves in search of redemption. "--

"He didn't want to keep dealing drugs but he had no choice." That's Mark Gaines, but it's pretty much everyone else in this sad story.
