About the Author and Book:Don Winslow is the New York Times bestselling author of The Winter of Frankie Machine, The Power of the Dog, and more recently, The Kings of Cool and Savages. In Savages, part-time environmentalist and philanthropist Ben and his ex-mercenary buddy Chon run a Laguna Beach–based marijuana operation, reaping significant profits from their loyal clientele. In the past when their turf was challenged, Chon took care of eliminating the threat. But now they may have come up against something that they can't handle—the Mexican Baja Cartel wants in, and sends them the message that a "no" is unacceptable. When they refuse to back down, the cartel escalates its threat, kidnapping Ophelia, the boys' playmate and confidante. O's abduction sets off a dizzying array of ingenious negotiations and gripping plot twists that will captivate readers eager to learn the costs of freedom and the price of one amazing high.
If you desire free parking, your best bet is to park across the street from ROC in the UTC Nordstrom mall entrance and walk across Genesee Street to the building. You may also look for street parking if available. If you don't mind paying for more convenient parking, you may park in the parking garage directly in front of the building. There is no discounted parking available and rates are $3.75 per hour, with a maximum charge of $12.50.
