Summary
Former LA undercover narcotics agent Will Magowan is offered a job as police chief in a small Northern California town. A recovering addict himself, Will quickly runs afoul of Frank Carver, the town's most famous resident--an aging Hippie who spent years in jail and wrote a book about his transformation to an "upstanding" citizen. With only a rookie officer to help him, Will must battle his own demons as well determine who could be running the state's largest meth lab somewhere in the national forest.
Critique
Once I started it, I couldn't put it down. A great crime fiction debut.
