A novel told from five perspectives that takes place after the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. All the main characters are men, In fact, the presence of women in the book are non existent. Some of the principle players include a man sent by an oil company to buy off local fishermen for their losses, a pair of brothers who have a hidden stash of marijuana plants on a secluded island and a one armed man who makes a living looking for fortune with a metal detector. The characters combine to form a wonderful story of violence and mayhem with a Louisiana flair. I really enjoyed this book.
