Vice cop, Eddie Fuentes, got bounced from the Oakland PD, not an easy thing to do. For an encore, he’s headed home to Redwood County to settle some affairs for his dope grower dad, who just went off a bridge. The “affairs” start with a very sexy redhead by the name of Shanna Black. Shanna’s a drug lawyer in the cross-hairs of a DEA investigation. She thinks Eddie could be part of her exit strategy, if only she can motivate him to sell a piece of land to a Wall Street tycoon looking to clearcut a stand of old growth redwood … without tipping off a dope grower client who doesn’t like building roads. Meanwhile, Eddie’s got problems of his own, like a professional killer with a dead brother and an unforgiving mom. And oh, yeah, Eddie’s old pool hustler pal, a Mynot Indian working on a little tribal development project called the Redwood Casino. Mix all this together with a U.S. Attorney, dying to embellish her Wikipedia page, and what do you get? It could be the biggest asset seizure in U.S. drug enforcement history— if we can figure out who’s seizing what from whom. Lethal loggers, crooked cops, corporate connivers, adaptable environmentalists, the original Dr. Feelgood, and a Native American master of “media optics”— they all face off in Redwood County, where the biggest industry is definitely — SMOKE!
