Publisher's Summary

Legalization is coming, but the bad boys aren't getting day jobs just yet.

Ex-vice cop Eddie Fuentes just got bounced from the Oakland PD, not an easy thing to do. Now he's back in Redwood County, trying to figure out how his dope grower dad went off a bridge. And there's this very sexy redhead who's a little too good to be true.

Shanna Black is a drug lawyer in the crosshairs of a DEA investigation. She thinks Eddie could be part of her exit strategy - if only she can lure him into a certain situation without her client finding out.

Meanwhile, there's a professional killer with a maniac for a kid brother and a shotgun-toting mom. And don't forget Eddie's old pool hustler pal, Russell George, a Native American developing his own little project called the Redwood Casino.

Fast women, deadly drug lords, corporate connivers, adaptable environmentalists, and crooked cops all face off in Redwood County, where the biggest industry is definitely California smoke!

    "SOMETHING TO OFFEND EVERYONE"

    Darkly comedic romp through Northern California’s drug country, as an ex- Oakland vice cop and a sexy drug lawyer team up with a Native American casino promoter to pull off a slippery scam. Clever dialogue and sleazy characters. Something to offend everyone—from self-promoting environmentalists, to honest dope dealers to crooked cops. I’ve given it five stars, but with TWO DISCLAIMERS. First, four-letter words. If you hated, say, PULP FICTION or THE BIG LEBOWSKI because of the language, you probably won’t like this book. Second, the audio production uses music and sound effects, so if you prefer a more straight-ahead listen, you might want to stay away as well.
