Product description

A "New York Times," "Entertainment Weekly," and "Chicago Sun-Times" Favorite Book of the Year "A revelation...This is "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" on autoload." --Stephen King, "Entertainment Weekly" "Startling...Stylish...Mega-cool." --Janet Maslin, "The New York Times" Ben, Chon, and O are twentysomething best friends living the dream in Southern California. Together they have made a small fortune producing premium grade marijuana, a product so potent that the Mexican Baja Cartel demands a cut. When Ben and Chon refuse to back down, the cartel kidnaps O, igniting a dizzying array of high-octane negotiations and stunning plot twists as they risk everything to free her. The result is a provocative, sexy, and darkly engrossing thrill ride, an ultracontemporary love story that will leave you breathless. "A spellbinding tour de force that is utterly impossible to put down." --Christopher Reich "This is the story of love's costs--and the acceptance of whatever that cost entails." --Randy Michael Signor, "Chicago Sun-Times" "A wickedly funny and smart novel." --Janet Evanovich "Winslow's marvelous, adrenaline-juiced roller coaster of a both a departure and a culmination, pyrotechnic braggadocio and deep meditation on contemporary American culture." --Sarah Weinman, "Los Angeles Times"

Review quote

An ultra-lean, stoner thriller .It packs a dynamic plot, sentences dripping with baditude'' and a singular way with language .Winslow's writing has the vigor of action painting .[his] command of vernacular is fabulous, his eye for detail sharp .Winslow's insights into drug wars are provocative, his descriptions of marijuana tantalizing. Carlo Wolff, "The Boston Globe"
