Dueling pot campaigns create fast-paced mystery
Nostalgia City executive Kate Sorensen finds the body of a mechanic crushed under an automobile hoist in the theme park’s garage. Accident or murder? Will it impact Kate’s decision to join one of two competing statewide campaigns to legalize marijuana in Arizona?
When the death is ruled a homicide and the DEA stages a surprise raid, park cab driver Lyle Deming is recruited to help solve the murder and find out if the park’s garage is being used to smuggle drugs. The anxiety-ridden ex-cop is soon poking around a Mexican border town looking for a park contractor who might be a drug mule. Or he might be dead.
Meanwhile, Kate, a 6-2½ former college basketball star, is dragged into a heated clash between potential corporate control of pot marketing and a laid-back, grow-your-own approach. As Kate wonders if she should mediate or advocate, she’s forced to dash for her life.
Then there’s another murder.
While they explore their nascent relationship, Kate and Lyle must move quickly through a tangle of motivations for legalizing pot until they can solve the murders.
The Marijuana Murders is set in Nostalgia City, a theme park that re-creates—in every detail—an entire small town from the 1970s.
