A film company rips off a small redwoods town after offering residents big checks and the sweet possibility of parts in a TV pilot. When the checks bounce, the town is told there’s nothing it can do. But then, in the coastal redwoods and in southern California’s affluhip Venice and Beverly Hills, the residents go on a dogged hunt for unthinkable and truly wicked revenge.

Del Monte’s descriptions of this small town riven by petty jealousies have a stunning intuitive quality. And she has perfect pitch for the resentments and backbiting of the residents as they plan revenge.

Reviewer: Terri L. Jenkins
This book is entertainment! It's a fun romp through the ploys used to pay back an underhanded Hollywood 'big wheel,' Zoltan Diesel by name. (He's called quite a few other names too.) If you enjoy seeing the little guy get even for once, (and watching a massive ego get deflated) then definitely order this book. It's a great way to spend a couple of free evenings. Be prepared to argue with yourself over who the real people are that the book's characters must be based on. Del Monte's got a gift for writing as people talk, not as the grammar books say we should. Did you like Edward Abbey's "The Monkey Wrench Gang" ? Then you'll enjoy the rich vintage of 'plonk.'

Reviewer: Kathy Owens
Great book about people in a Northern California town, Hollywood film company who skipped out of town and the dogged hunt for wicked revenge against the film company. Joan Del Monte is a great storyteller with her characters and locations in the redwoods and in Southern California that come alive on the pages. The reader is cheering on the townspeople with their use of intelligence and imagination to teach the director, producer and actor a lesson they will never forget. This book is a MUST!!
