Kona Gold

Kona Gold is Good’s fourth installment of the Senor Bueno travel adventures and finds him in 1972, where Uncle Dick is still president, Dr. Strangelove is still derailing his every move, and his old friend Lizardo has returned. Specifically to Captain Cook, a tiny town where growing pot is a booming business. Mike arrives to grow his fortune, only to find himself foiled by a stubborn horse, feral rodents, caterpillars, a sadistic dentist, African geese, his father, and a witch named Ghouli (Gulicia if you’re nasty).

It has all the promise of a great novel by one of Good’s idols — Carl Hiaasen, Tim Dorsey, or Christopher Moore — but never quite gets off the ground. Kona Gold is entertaining, but Good has a long road ahead to reach the masters.
