It''s the mid-1970s, and Martin Anderson''s small aircraft business is tanking, as is his extravagant suburban lifestyle. So when he''s given the opportunity to clear his debt by using one of his planes to make a few drug runs between California and Mexico, Martin doesn''t think twice . . . or at all, for that matter.
From the Publisher:
Martin Anderson has a racehorse, a deep-sea fishing boat, a vacation home in Tahoe, and a Caddy in the garage. But his life is in freefall. It's the 1970s, and with the arrival of the oil crisis and gas rationing, his small aircraft business is tanking, as is his extravagant suburban lifestyle. Martin keeps many secrets from his wife, such as his mounting debt and his penchant for sneaking into neighborhood homes and making off with small keepsakes. So when he's given the opportunity to clear his debt by using one of his planes to make a few drug runs between California and Mexico, Martin doesn't think twice . . . or at all, for that matter.||Things quickly spiral out of control when Martin's simple plan lands him in the midst of gun-toting Mexican thugs. After a narcotics agent arrives on his doorstep, he becomes increasingly paranoid, both about the police and about his associates in the drug world--a feeling that seems justified when he stumbles upon the scene of a brutal double murder. Martin wants out, but he wants his money, too.||Deeply funny and suspenseful, David Anthony's novel is a perfect snapshot of the excesses of American culture.
