James, a dead-beat dad, is unemployed and on probation living with his grandmother. Instead of visiting the temp agency, he visits Mickle(A friend of his cousin). Once James finds Mickle's inventory of weed, he makes a decision that will change everything.

David Bain has a true gem in this crime novella set in Green River. His writing style is inviting and crisp and once you start it will be hard to put down. "Weed" has everything a crime story needs; great characters,action,drugs,and guns. The breakout character for me is Mickle. I hated James and found the ending a satisfactory means to an end.

I hope the Mickle chaacter shows up in other works by Mr. Bain. For the price "Weed A Green River Crime Novella" can't be ignored.

A competent, well-paced tale of a thoroughly unsympathetic protagonist who -- to the surprise of none and the delight of me, Reader -- gets in over his head. I read this novella in two sittings, and found the many characters interesting and memorable (watch for James' grandmother's scene, which is esp. good), and the Green River setting is well fleshed-out, and ripe for expansion. I have to say that I preferred Mickle to our protagonist, and I hope to read more about him in the future.

I enjoyed this book. The characters were all written well, and were engaging and interesting. Not all authors can get you to understand and like characters, especially in such short a time.

I would love to see more of the characters in this novella.
