My second book in the Nostalgia City mystery series is here!
Desert Kill Switch has more than one crime to solve. When I read a mystery, I enjoy keeping track of clues and trying to solve the puzzles. But I also like a mystery that moves apace, making me worry about the safety of the lead characters. This is the kind of mystery I wrote in Desert Kill Switch.
The book is two overlapping stories in one:
Lyle Deming is a stressed out ex-homicide detective who drives a cab in Nostalgia City, the Arizona retro theme park, as his escape from the disappointments and anxieties of police work. But on page one of the novel, Lyle discovers a body in the desert next to a pristine 1970s car. When he comes back to the scene with sheriff’s deputies, the car and body are gone. Was he seeing things?
Kate Sorensen, a former college basketball star, is Nostalgia City’s PR VP and she’s in Reno working in an exhibit booth. She’s representing her employer at a sprawling retro festival featuring classic cars and rock ’n’ roll. She’s accused of trying to steal the Reno festival and move it to Arizona. Worse, she’s accused of killing the festival chairman.
Lyle arrives in Reno to help his blonde, not-quite-girlfriend and they plow through a deadly tangle of suspects and motives. Kate and Lyle hit one dead end after another as they struggle to exonerate Kate, catch a blackmailer, save a witness’s life, and help find the missing corpse.
