When born loser Tim Kearney murdered a Hell's Angel, he didn't have a choice. Now, sentenced to life without parole in a prison full of the Angel's vengeful buddies, he doesn't have a chance.

Then the Feds make him an offer: impersonate the late, legendary drug lord Bobby Z and allow himself to be delivered to a Mexican kingpin in exchange for a kidnapped agent. If the deal goes down, Tim can walk away a free man. But when the swap turns bloody, Tim runs--straight into the luxurious, chaotic, hair-raising, and very hazardous life of Bobby Z.

    " Tim Kearney is a three time loser looking at the prospect of life in the California prison system or a shank in the back when a bright spark at the DEA realizes that he looks an awful lot like the recently deceased enigmatic drug kingpin called Bobby Z. The feds make a deal, they will release Kearney and then trade him in the guise of Bobby Z. to Mexican drug lords who don't know the truth about the real Z. If all this sounds a little too preposterous to make a good story, it gets even wilder when Tim breaks out of the drug lords lair with a young child in tow and sets up the most unlikely buddy story in a long time. Blasting through the southwest with guns blazing to keep himself and the kid alive, Tim realizes that the only way he can survive is to become Bobby Z. for real, which is when things turn really nasty. Reading Winslow is a blast, he writes with a wry, adrenaline fueled sensibility that keeps the story moving briskly. Filled with dry humor, along with fascinating characters, this is perfect beach reading for crime fans. "
