New York Times**–bestselling author: “Terrific . . . Might be the best drug book since Robert Stone’s brilliant Dog Soldiers or Don Winslow’s superb Cartel series” (Providence Journal).**
Emily runs a successful bistro in Humboldt County, California, where she lives with her boyfriend, Jeff, a volunteer firefighter. Except firefighting isn’t really Jeff’s main job—that would be flying Humboldt’s finest weed to out-of-state customers. And he isn’t really Emily’s boyfriend, more like a guy that circumstance has stuck her with. And his name isn’t really Jeff—it’s Danny, and Emily’s real name is Michelle Mason . . . although no one can ever know that. She’s on the run from her past, which has just caught up with her.
The ex-CIA agent who got her and Danny into this whole mess has shown up in Humboldt County. Michelle should have killed him when she had the chance, but now she has no choice but to play Gary’s game—and if she loses, she or someone close to her will pay the ultimate price.
From the Anthony Award–nominated author of Getaway, this is an all-too-realistic thriller about for-profit prisons, big-money politics, shady nonprofits, the war on drugs—and the people who would kill to keep the system intact.
