Praise for Stinger
“A lively, engaging, and deeply knowledgeable romp through business and family intrigue in the Central Valley. Both Nichols and McEwen are talented, accomplished writers on their own, but in Stinger, they make a great and seamless team.”
– Liza Wieland, author of Paris, 7 A.M.
“Highway 99 runs right through the San Joaquin Valley’s heart – which is where you’ll find Stinger. This is a letter of crazy stupid love to California’s most intriguing region, a literal land of milk and honey. It’s also a page-turning caper about the things that really matter; life, liberty, and the pursuit of water.”
– Joe Mathews, author and Connecting California columnist
“Stinger is taut and colorful, a tale well-told by Nichols and McEwen, both of whom know every corner of the Valley and every secret hidden there. The landscape and the characters who inhabit it come alive in these pages.”
– Steve Yarbrough, author of The Unmade World
