Grizzly Season

by S. W. Lauden

The highly anticipated follow-up to S. W. Lauden's Bad Citizen Corporation, former Los Angeles police officer Greg Salem and his sidekick Marco escape to a remote cabin in the backend of the Angeles National Forest, only to have their peaceful retreat upturned after stumbling across the marijuana farm operation called Grizzly Flats. When the drug lord Magnus Ursa's latest marijuana crop leaves Greg's hometown and closest friends in disarray—setting off a series of explosive scenes including high-speed motorcycle chases, violent porn shoots, high-altitude gun fights, Mexican drug smuggling, and murder—Greg is forced out of retirement to avenge his home and save the lives of those closest him.

Hard-edged with a deft eye and ear portraying the stone cold graspers hustling for their illicit piece of the illusory rainbow, S.W. Lauden delivers the delicious jagged goods in Grizzly Season.
Gary Phillips, author of 3 the Hard Way
Lauden’s new novel is wired with promises and threats that anything just might happen, and then it does—again and again. The furious pace never lets up. By the end you’ll be bruised by the ferocious beauty of Grizzly Season.
Joseph Di Prisco, author of The Alzheimer and The Pope of Brooklyn
