Author Robert Guffey joins THC to talk about the saga contained in his new book, Chameleo: A Strange But True Story Of Invisible Spies, Heroin Addiction, and Homeland Security.

A mesmerizing mix of Charles Bukowski, Hunter S. Thompson, and Philip K. Dick, Chameleo is a true account of what happened in a seedy Southern California town when an enthusiastic and unrepentant heroin addict sheltered a U.S. Marine who’d stolen night vision goggles and perhaps a few top secret files from a nearby military base.

As a result, he believed himself under intense government scrutiny — and, he suspected, the subject of bizarre experimentation involving “cloaking”— electro-optical camouflage so extreme it renders observers practically invisible from a distance of some meters — by the Department of Homeland Security.
