WATER IS POWER
In the near future, the Colorado River has dwindled to a trickle. Detective, assassin, and spy, Angel Velasquez “cuts” water for the Southern Nevada Water Authority, ensuring that its lush arcology developments can bloom in Las Vegas. When rumors of a game-changing water source surface in Phoenix, Angel is sent south, hunting for answers that seem to evaporate as the heat index soars and the landscape becomes more and more oppressive. There, he encounters Lucy Monroe, a hardened journalist with her own agenda, and Maria Villarosa, a young Texas migrant, who dreams of escaping north. As bodies begin to pile up, the three find themselves pawns in a game far bigger and more corrupt than they could have imagined, and when water is more valuable than gold, alliances shift like sand, and the only truth in the desert is that someone will have to bleed if anyone hopes to drink.
Years ago I read the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs...Enjoyed them immensely...

So I am getting back into reading and I am looking for a specific type of sci fi novel.
Right know I am reading "Cash Crash Jubilee", I am almost done, but not that impressed, too pg-13ish for me.
I read this novel awhile ago and was just blown away by it. It was called "Blueprints to the Afterlife". The book was so good I binge read it in about two days and I have been thirsting for something like it since, I have even re-read it a few times, which I never do.
So what I am looking for is something in the not too distant future, Kinda cyberpunky, it has to have humor and quirkiness but also be somewhat vulgar and very shocking.
