"Bitter Drink [Excerpt]" by F.G. Haghenbeck

Beatnik detective Sunny Pascal is an expert at two things: cocktails and finding trouble. And when the filming of John Huston’s "The Night of the Iguana" hits a few snags with its sexed-up, star-studded cast in a Puerto Vallarta paradise, producer Ray Stark brings Sunny in to chill out the set. But matters get tipsy when someone’s found deader than dead, shot down by a gun belonging to one of the cast members.

Now Sunny’s got to keep his Hollywood stars out of jail long enough for him to solve the case. But the trouble doesn’t stop with murder. The Mexican mafia and local newspapers wage a tension war against the hedonistic Americans, and if John Huston has anything to say about it, Sunny’s got to be the one to keep the show on the road. Only Sunny will be doing it his way: with a martini in one hand and a Colt in the other.

Prolific Mexican comic book writer and Turn of the Screw Award–winner F.G. Haghenbeck gives us the spins with Bitter Drink, a tense tale of crime, passion, and cocktails.
