PimPage: An Occasional Feature in Which I Call Interesting Books to Your Attention

Amazon.com: The Big Wink eBook: Steve Brewer: Books: "Misfit robbers attract the hot spotlight of the medical marijuana debate in THE BIG WINK, the new crime novel from veteran mystery author Steve Brewer.

Ray Bunch and his gang have been happily knocking over cannabis dispensaries for weeks around Redding, California, where all-but-legal marijuana has set off an economic Green Rush. But when prominent banker Kwanzaa DuPont gets shot during a holdup, media attention becomes focused on the hunt for the robbers.

The gang hides out among the growers, dopers and double-crossers of Northern California's Emerald Triangle, but the heat only worsens.

The cops and the city fathers hope the attention will interrupt the spread of medical marijuana. A pot advocate from Sacramento tries to use the shooting to promote full legalization. The Mexican crime cartel wants Ray's gang silenced. And the lead detective on the case wants to rekindle his childhood romance with Kwanzaa DuPont.

Full of colorful characters and Steve Brewer's usual twisted comedy, THE BIG WINK is more fun than beer bong."
