Danny Grant figures he’s hit the big time when he lands a job growing pot for a backwoods biker gang. The Libidos are picky about their hires and prone to radical pruning when members go rogue. Members like Perko Ratwick, the aspiring Road Captain who stretched club rules to hire young Danny, putting his own patch — never mind his life — on the line if the punk screws up. What could possibly go wrong with a high school dropout left unattended in a barn full of high-grade marijuana? Plenty, it turns out. In a world where indoor plumbing’s optional and each local wacko is more twisted than the last, drug money draws reprobates like moths to a lantern. From loveable losers to gnarly thugs and law-and-order wannabes, every last one of them has an angle — their best shot at being stinking rich. But Perko’s got warped ideas about right, wrong, and retribution, and the gang’s not far behind.
Praise for STINKING RICH …
“Brunet’s hilarious caper [is] populated with a motley collection of unforgettable would-be heroes, all scrabbling for a piece of the action. Thoroughly entertaining!” —Owen Laukkanen, Anthony Award, Barry Award, Thriller Award, and Spinetingler Award-nominated author of The Professionals, Criminal Enterprise, and Kill Fee
“One of the wildest romps you’ll ever go on…the cast is right out of a John Waters movie and with more unexpected twists and wrong turns than a blind rat on crack running a maze. This book rocks!” —Les Edgerton, O. Henry Award, Edgar Award, and Spinetingler Award-nominated author of The Bitch and The Genuine, Imitation Plastic Kidnapping
“If Carl Hiaasen were Canadian and enjoyed partaking in a little Class D substance for recreation, then you’d have an idea of what Stinking Rich has for you between its covers.” —Todd Robinson, Anthony-nominated author of The Hard Bounce
“Hilarious crime caper! Trying to properly describe Stinking Rich is like trying to catch grasshoppers. You no sooner snatch up one then a dozen jump up all over the place. There are lots of other great supporting characters that fill this wacky crime story and this reviewer was shaking his head and chuckling often before the entire madcap carousel finally spun down to an exhaustive finish. Rob Brunet is a gifted writer who somehow manages to corral a dozen insane characters and through them tell a tale unlike any we’ve ever heard before. He is a name you want to keep an eye on. We certainly will.” —Ron Fortier, Pulp Fiction Reviews
