Curse the NameseBook - 2011
"Robert Arellano, author of the Edgar-nominated crime novel Havana Lunar, returns with another spine-tingling noir from Akashic Books. HIGH ON A MESA IN THE MOUNTAINS OF NEW MEXICO, a small town hides a dreadful secret. On a morning very soon there will be an accident that triggers a terrible chain reaction, and the world we know will be wiped out. JAMES OBERHELM, A REPORTER at Los Alamos National Laboratory, already sees the devastation, like the skin torn off a moment that is yet to be. He believes he can prevent an apocalypse, but first James must escape the devices of a sensuous young blood tech, a lecherous old hippie, a predator in a waking nightmare, and a forsaken adobe house high away in the Sangre de Cristo mountains whose dark history entwines them all. A MASSIVE BOMB IS TICKING beneath the sands of the Southwest, and time is running out to send a warning. James has to find a way to pass along the message-even if it ruins him."-- Provided by publisher.
