Satire, the New Age and hard-boiled detective novels collide in my new mystery: SANDY BOTTOM. Just back from Guatemala after three years of tending bar on Lake Atitlan, part-time shaman and New Age dick Natty Dredd Bumpo returns to Traverse City, Michigan, where he finds himself plunged head-first into solving the murder of millionaire eco-warrior Timothy Bottom.
Complicating matters, a Russian femme fatale, a crystal skull, and a grumpy gator add to the mayhem that could get Bumpo killed, or worse.
