The title of a book I remember from years ago and would like to find again. It was about an alien race from a very hot planet visiting earth to get a drug that was instantly addictive to them. They called it "toffaco". There was an undercover drug agent among them & was discovered by the drug runners & forcefully exposed & addicted. The drug was our tobacco & they had a deal with someone on earth to buy it. Their environment was so hot they thought liquid water did not exist. If anyone could help I'd appreciate it, thanx
