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 novel...is both a departure and a culmination, pyrotechnic braggadocio and deep meditation on contemporary American culture." --Sarah Weinman, Los Angeles Times.
