Summary
  • Wyatt Storme used to have the fastest hands in the NFL - until he left football stardom to lead a simpler life. But one day while bowhunting in the Ozarks he stumbles upon a field of marijuana, and life becomes very complicated very quickly. In the tradition of Spenser and Travis McGee, Storme is a man with an innate sense of justice, a wisecracking wit - and an inability to sit out the game on the sidelines. So when the local sheriff gets murdered while investigating
  • the marijuana field, Storme swings into action. His target: a midwestern drug cartel gearing up to launch a new synthetic narcotic that makes crack look like candy - dreamsicle. Picking up a partner along the way - CIA operative turned bounty hunter Chick Easton - Storme follows a trail of murder, cover-up, and small-town corruption that pits him against the most powerful men in the county, not to mention the local police, the DEA, and the FBI. With the help of an
  • intrepid reporter and an alluring female source inside the organization, Storme zeroes in on the cartel's kingpin - a shady local businessman with a taste for violence - as the novel races toward a high-octane showdown. With crackling dialogue, breakneck plotting, and a gripping, mano-a-mano climax, Dreamsicle marks the debut of an exciting mystery writer - and an unforgettable new hard-boiled sleuth
