Daily Kindle Bargain - Yellow Medicine by Anthony Neil Smith

Yellow Medicine by Anthony Neil Smith is available on Kindle for just 99 cents.


Deputy Billy Lafitte is not unfamiliar with the law--he just prefers to enforce it, rather than abide by it. But his rule-bending and bribe-taking have gotten him kicked off the force in Gulfport, Mississippi, and he’s been given a second chance--in the desolate, Siberian wastelands of rural Minnesota. Now Billy’s only got the local girls and local booze to keep him company.

Until one of the local girls--cute little Drew, bassist for a psychobilly band--asks Billy for help with her boyfriend. Something about the drugs Ian’s been selling, some product he may have lost, and the men who are threatening him because of it. Billy agrees to look into it, and before long he’s speeding down a snowy road, tracking a cell of terrorists, with a severed head in his truck’s cab. And that’s only the start.

From the Reviewers:

"Smith has a powerful voice and delivers quite a romp, offering along the way a sort of Tony Hillerman glimpse into a part of the country that is not often the subject of crime fiction."  
--Steve Glassman, Booklist

"With enough anarchic energy to give you whiplash, YELLOW MEDICINE gets its hooks into you from its first turbulent pages. For all its dark humor, its cunning and serpentine story and its rollicking cast of characters scattered across its Upper Midwest landscape, it is the novel's complicated, captivating hero, Deputy Billy Lafitte, who holds you from beginning to end. He’s a liar, a cheat and a pretty bad guy, but so richly rendered that, before you know it, you find yourself following him through the darkest of terrains, and eagerly." 
--Megan Abbott, author of the Edgar-nominated Queenpin
