Fasten your neck brace for the roller-coaster ride of disbelief or neck-breaking laughter at the antics of a misguided youth. Grandpa Louie passed down his legacy of bootlegging, gambling and pool sharking to me, and I one-upped him by becoming the Drug Kingpin of the Northwest. I was chased by the cops as a six-year-old kid, a wild teenager, and a major drug trafficker.
These nefarious adventures will take you through the underbelly of the drug world where you will meet notorious criminals, including three Mafia members, the Spokane Serial Killer, the accused Tylenol Killer, an Aryan Brotherhood shotcaller and the Oklahoma City Bomber. With the guidance of his “gangster” grandfather Louis Critzer, Bobby learned the ropes to crime at an early age.
From connections with cocaine traffickers from Cuba and Colombia to friends from the Philadelphia Mafia, this soft spoken gentleman from a small town in Idaho rose through the ranks to become a high level drug kingpin. His life included a brush with Timothy McVeigh, the Oklahoma City bomber, a friend who was murdered by the Spokane Serial Killer Robert Yates, a former Aryan Brotherhood shotcaller that he helped escape from the Spokane county Jail, and many others.
After 16 years in various prisons, and a last stint in the Idaho State Prison, he finally came face up with how destructive his drug dealing and cooking had become.

Years in the School of Hard Knocks (prison) and eventually saved me from myself through redemption. 97 people were interviewed for this book. Don’t believe them. They’re jealous and out to get me. I sure hope the Statute of Limitations is up or I’m screwed.
According to Idaho State Police Drug Agents, Bobby was considered one of the highest level drug traffickers Idaho law enforcement ever pursued. “He was a real challenge and we enjoyed the hunt.”
