9781612184395: Big Maria

2013 Anthony Award Winner

There’s gold in them thar hills—or more precisely, in Arizona’s Chocolate Mountains, where one hundred years ago a miner stashed a king’s ransom of the stuff. But times have changed. The world has changed. And now the Chocolate Mountains are the home of the largest military artillery range in the world.

Harry’s living on disability and getting liquored up and beaten down. Frank’s a feisty old-timer battling cancer and a domineering daughter. And Ricky’s a good kid in a bad spot, doing everything for family. Together they’re staking what little they have left on a dangerous quest to the Big Maria Mine—and the gold that can offer them a new beginning.

Unfortunately a meth-dealing biker wants a piece, a trigger-happy AWOL soldier wants to play chicken in a live minefield, two stubborn burros want to go home, a starving mountain lion wants his dinner, and the US Army wants to rain on our heroes’ parade with real bombs.

When you’re all out of crazy ideas, you’ve got to try the stupid ones.

Imagine Chuck Palahniuk and Don Winslow’s love child – and that would be ribald author Johnny Shaw. His novel Big Maria is a unfiltered, wild romp in which three men get one chance to find a lost gold mine; the only problem is the Big Maria Mine is right in the middle of a US Army artillery range.

Review:

Blake Crouch reviews Johnny Shaw’s new crime humor novel Big Maria

For me, there are several variations on the "amazing reading experience."

  1. When you can't put a book down due to perfect plotting.
  2. When you find yourself caring deeply about its characters.
  3. When those characters are people who in real life you would shudder to have as neighbors and yet you still care.
  4. And this is truly the rarest of all and nothing short of an absolute gift. When every few pages you stumble across a one-liner that makes you smile, laugh, shake your head, and wonder just how long this writer can sustain this lovely train of thought.
Such is the wonder of Big Maria, the second novel, following Dove Season, by Johnny Shaw, which somehow manages to achieve all of the above and more... Read the rest of this review at www.kindlepost.com.

Descripción Thomas Mercer, United States, 2012. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Somewhere in Arizona s Chocolate Mountains lie the Big Maria Mine and a wealth of gold lost for a hundred years. There s only one problem: those mountains are now the home of the US Army Proving Ground, the world s largest active artillery range. But for Harry, Ricky, and Frank, three down-at-the-heels guys with few dollars but plenty of dreams, the gold offers each of them a chance for a new life. Are scuba diving through an underwater ghost town; facing down a hungry mountain lion; doing the hesitation waltz across a minefield; matching wits with potheads, pit bulls, and bikers; and braving the might of Uncle Sam s full arsenal worth it? With little more than a samurai sword, a severed head, and an impractical amount of optimism, these intrepid soldiers of (mis)fortune are about to find out.
