Two hunters and their guide find a crashed cocaine plane in the Montana wilderness. Each has a reason to steal the cocaine – who will?
The two who do steal it soon find themselves hunted by the Mexican cocaine cartel, the DEA, Las Vegas killers, their guide, and the police of several states.
Zack, a former NFL star now a TV sports icon, owes two million to some nasty people in Vegas. Steve, a Wall Street broker, may have lost all of his and Zack’s investments. Curt, their guide, a half-Cheyenne mountain man, is trying to save his ranch from an energy company takeover.
Diego is an executioner for the cocaine cartel. María Christina, a Harvard grad and Yale MBA, runs the cartel. Whitney Castro is a black girl from the Denver slums, now a brilliant DEA agent. Kenny Stauffenberg is an easy-going Montana sheriff who never gives up a hunt.
From the frozen peaks of Montana to the heights of Wall Street, the slums of Denver and the million-dollar tables at Vegas, SNOW is an electric portrait of today’s American culture, the invisible line between good and evil, and what people will do in their frantic search for love and freedom.
A "captivating story of three friends on opposing sides of a betrayal...Bond tells his story in a crisp, propulsive prose that darts from sentence to sentence... He also has a sharp ear for dialogue and a knack for character development... Themes of the destructiveness of greed, both private and corporate; the sacredness of nature; and the primeval ways of mankind lend weight to... a well-paced tale with intricate story lines." - KIRKUS
"I have always described Mike Bond as a lyric writer, someone whose prose is so beautiful you just enjoy immersing yourself in it. In all of his books, the environment is a major physical part of the story. In his latest effort, the snow is a constant feature, but does not play as great a role as in his earlier works. This book is unique in that none of the major players is a hero. Everyone in the story is human, and displays flaws that result from being human... From the lights of Las Vegas to the towers of Manhattan, to the blowing snows of the Rockies, the action and suspense continue unabated. This is a fantastic story, told beautifully. - NETGALLEY
