Drone Baloney

The ex-pat recluses hiding out on a Baja beachfront have one desire: They want to be left alone.

And they are—until a mysterious government drone plummets into the desert next to their settlement. The high-tech air war that follows lights up the Mexican skies, and the carnage from that battle spills down on Gringa’s hermit-like community, slowly crushing their dreams. Drone Baloney chronicles the efforts of this quirky band who fight against progress they don’t enjoy.

Author John Hewitt is a Los Angeles native who has pursued the art of avoiding potholes while driving through Mexico. Drone Baloney is satirical fiction, and the last in a trilogy of tales celebrating the delightful characters on the Baja Peninsula.
