Reviews

"A compelling, character-rich spin on true crime."--Booklist

"Capturing Miami's shift from somnolent to full blast urban dynamo, Full Circle is radiant joy mingled with the strain of dark choices. Chuck Malkus's engaging use of teenaged wrestling pals whose life paths are mirror-like reflection of the strains of modernizing is "reader glue." The towering humanity of the freshened life possibilities of those divergent path wrestler pals invites the very same hope as Miami matures." --Bob Danzig, former CEO, Hearst Newspapers

"Full Circle shows the lives of two young men during an era that should not be forgotten. This tour of life in the 1980s and 1990s is engaging and it feels as though you were there to witness their two different paths. I was there during a time when there were obstacles that were unheard of during this point in our country's history and Malkus covers it all, leaving no stone unturned."--Jim Hoy, Association of Federal Narcotics Agents, Florida Chapter President

"Full Circle immediately draws the reader in with a character so colorful it reads like a novel. What starts as a coming of age story of two best friends becomes a story about temptations and choices. The bond between two boys that began on a high school wrestling mat soon faces the challenge of growing up in Miami during the heyday of the cocaine cowboys. This era was a time when the cocaine trade touched the lives of every person living in Miami. Even two state wrestling champions who had full rides to college couldn't hide from the lure of the drug and what it represented. As Full Circle attests, money wasn't the only motivation for chasing the decade's white gold. The firsthand accounts of the dangerous detours of the cocaine trade, which turned one friend into a fugitive, will keep the reader reaching for this book until the last page is turned." --Kim Segal, former supervising producer, CNN
