About this title

Synopsis:

Soon to be a comedy series with the pilot episode now streaming on Amazon Video – an “irresistible” (Los Angeles Times) novel about the adventures of three men growing marijuana in Northern California

All Felix Nasmyth and friends have to do is harvest a crop of Cannabis Sativa and half a million tax-free dollars will be theirs. But they haven't reckoned on nosy Northern California-style neighbors, torrential rain, demands of the flesh, and Felix's improbable new love, a wayward sculptress on whose behalf he undertakes a one-man vendetta against a drug-busting state trooper named Jerpbak. As their deal escalates through crises into nightmare, their dreams of easy money get nipped in the bud.
