The fascinating name that the author has chosen for his book was what made me pick up it up in the first place and then there was that stunning cover of the Jeep running on a dirt track towards the Colorado mountains. The book itself deals with the modern-day conundrums of new conflicting medical knowledge regarding the use of marijuana and legality or illegality of its use and so economics and health concerns grapple with each other in a small ski-town.

The author has tried to bring out t

I liked what I took to be a play on words in the title and the story sounded fun too. It was in a way. The Sheriff and his deputy have a fairly quiet life in Quandary if you don't count the sleazebag of a Mayor. He treats them like dirt, cuts and cuts their budget whilst doing the utmost to line his pockets from various nefarious schemes all painted as being for the good of the town. Then a drug cartel moves into the area and takes over from the local cannabis growers. They are really nasty peop ...more

My first read by this author and, overall, the book was well written. Set in a small ski resort, the local sheriff, Breck, comes up against a drug cartel. The mayor is less than helpful and is very unsupportive of the sheriff's department. Plenty descriptive passages of the mountains in winter, although I found the plot unbelievable and the book was too long to maintain my interest.I would read a follow up, due to the cliffhanger ending leaving a few loose threads. Thanks to Net Galley for my AR ...more

This is quite a well written and enjoyable story, even though it's a bit too long, and the plot is kind of stupid.
