Dealer is not your typical story about a local 60s hippy dippy weed peddler selling his stash from the back of an aging Cadillac. Dealer is about a business. An import business. A marijuana import business that grows from a modest entrepreneurial organization, to a global distribution network that takes you on a journey from the Caribbean, South America, Asia and all points in between.

Talk about a blast from the past! Stiller’s book took me back to my 20s and brought back images from the ‘60s that got lost in the memory banks. Whether or not you participated in the music, drugs, or sex of that decade, Dealer guides you through many of the “adventures” that we shared as Hippies. This book is probably as good a history lesson as it is a highly entertaining novel. You should make a point of reading Stiller’s Dealer for the story, the authenticity, and the excellent writing.

A good read. Mr. Stiller held my interest as he developed his characters and told a fast paced story of how the business of importing marijuana was conceived and the distribution networks developed in the sixties and seventies. Filled with intrigue and suspense as mistakes are made and law enforcement gathers and unravels the criminal organization.

It's supposed to be the case that if you remember the late-60s and early-70s you really were not there. Stiller was there, and he remembers some subtle but important markers of the time. If you were there but can't fill in the blanks, this will spark your flashback.

Amazing book I related to out of experience. Beyond human belief and comprehention.

I admit I didn't know a lot about the Marijuana Business in the 60's. The development of the characters and the descriptive adventures written about made this an entertaining, interesting and educational read. I found myself caring for characters I didn't think I would when first introduced. I look forward to reading a sequel. Write on Mr. Stiller write on...
