Part-time environmentalist and philantropist Ben and his ex-mercenary buddy Chon run a Laguna Beach-based marijuana operation, reaping significant profits from their loyal clientele. In the past when thier turf was challanged, Chon took care of eliminating the threat. But now they may have come up against something they can't handle-the Mexican Baja Cartel wants in, and sends them a message that "no" is unacceptable. When they refuse to back down, the cartel escaletes its threat, kidnapping Ophelia, the boys' playmate and confidante. O's abduction sets off a dizzing array of ingenious negotiations and gripping plot twists that will captivate the readers eager to learn the costs of freedom and the price of one amazing high.
