Product Description

Product Description

Jimmy Veeder and Bobby Maves are back at it, two years after the events of Dove Season—they’re not exactly the luckiest guys in the Imperial Valley, but, hey, they win more fights than they lose.

Settled on his own farmland and living like a true family man after years of irresponsible fun, Jimmy’s got a straight life cut out for him. But he’s knocking years off that life thanks to fun-yet-dangerous Bobby’s booze-addled antics—especially now that Bobby is single, volatile, profane as ever, and bored as hell.

When Bobby’s teenage daughter goes missing, he and Jimmy take off on a misadventure that starts out as merely unfortunate and escalates to downright calamitous. Bobby won’t hesitate to kick a hornets’ nest to get the girl to safety, but when the rescue mission goes riotously sideways, the duo’s grit—and loyalty to each other—is put to the test.

5.0 out of 5 stars plaster city 23 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am still reading this book, almost finished. It's so funny it is like a keystone cops movie, I'm really enjoying it. As I recall this author's last book was just as funny. I would always recommend his books to anyone,as long as the language is not an issue for them .

If you liked Chandler but find him dated this is a worthy successor with a touch of lee child's Reacher

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mavescapade! 25 Jun 2014
By tone1428 VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jimmy Veeder and Bobby Maves ride again! Oh how I love these two characters!
Off they go again on yet another badly planned and poorly organised Mavescapade (you have to read the books to find out!) I say poorly organised as their willingness to use extreme violence is always there...along with Bobbys usual bag of weapons!
I will not give away the story line at all except to say that this second book featuring these two 'heroes' looks like it may be the last one,I hasten to add not because of either one of them meeting an untimely end! This book, like the authors other two yarns is very very funny,with sad moments and parts of extreme violence!
I absolutely loved it! Please Johnny Shaw write another Mavescapade!
