Vancouver Junkie Hunter – A Book Review

April 29, 2020

A Retired Narcotics Agent Relives Life Undercover in 1980s Vancouver

Norm Boucher, Horseplay: My Time Undercover on the Granville Strip (Edmonton: NeWest Press, 2020), 181 pages, (paper).

We’re on the toughest section of Granville Street in downtown Vancouver. The hookers and dopers mingle with the gays and straights all of them looking to score something. We could be in a scene from DaVinci’s Inquest, the top-quality TV show that ran from 1998 to 2006. Except that it’s 1983 and Norm Boucher is telling us the real-life story of his exploits as an undercover narcotics cop.
