Somewhere in Arizona’s Chocolate Mountains lie the Big Maria Mine and a wealth of gold lost for 100 years. There’s only one problem: Those mountains are now the home of the US Army Proving Ground, the world’s largest active artillery range. But for Harry, Ricky, and Frank, three down-at-the-heels guys with few dollars but plenty of dreams, the gold offers each of them a chance for a new life. Are scuba diving through an underwater ghost town; facing down a hungry mountain lion; doing the hesitation waltz across a minefield; matching wits with potheads, pit bulls, and bikers; and braving the might of Uncle Sam’s full arsenal worth it?
With little more than a samurai sword, a severed head, and an impractical amount of optimism, these intrepid soldiers of (mis)fortune are about to find out.

I am really surprised that no one else has rated this book yet because Johnny Shaw writes books for guys from a male's point of view. His humor really shows in his stories and his use of everyday foul language is so commonly use in his characters where it becomes laughable in his subtle jokes
After reading "Dove Season", I was really excited to read "Big Maria". It's not as good as his previous title, which you should read, but "Big Maria" will give you a good adventure, in finding the treasure of gold.
Once you read this book, you will understand the joke of being Medium Hot. I will always be a fan of Shaw because like a romance author, he writes with all of his testosterone firing.
I hope that I'm the not the only person that who writes a review on this book.
I finished it within a day.
