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 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Violent, hilarious, and touching, Shaw’s sequel to Dove Season chronicles the efforts of semireformed brawler Jimmy Veeder to help Bobby Maves find his missing sixteen-year-old daughter, Julie…Joe R. Lansdale perfected this brand of compassionate mayhem in his Hap & Leonard stories, but Anthony Award winner Shaw does it extremely well, too.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Mixing comedy with the ugly side of human experience is never an easy trick, but Shaw is well on his way to becoming a master at this difficult craft.”

    Booklist

  • “Violent and ribald without being salacious, the novel maintains a tongue-in-cheek attitude that keeps the reader wholly entertained. The setting of California’s Imperial Valley is paramount, with its long expanse of nothingness and like the book says,…when you’re walking in the desert, you’re walking on a graveyard.’ Readers who enjoy mysteries and suspense novels with plenty of action and humor will delight in this series.”

    Library Journal

  • “If you do not love Johnny Shaw’s new novel Plaster City, I will fight you.”

    Christa Faust, author of Money Shot and Choke Hold
