Number 1 on Amazon’s New & Hot list for many days after publication, LOST OASIS is the 8th novel in the ZACK TOLLIVER, FBI, series. “Lost Oasis is the most intense and dazzling Zack Tolliver book so far, and they’re all thrilling well-researched mysteries!” says an Amazon reviewer.
Modern science and high technology come up against deeply rooted cultures and ancient rituals in this Zack Tolliver, FBI, story where the Eagle Mountains are surrounded by the goblin rocks and barren flats of Joshua Tree National Park. A world-class scientist goes missing while consulting for a design team constructing a huge electric storage battery from the deserted pits of the old Kaiser Iron mines. Did this eccentric world-renown hydrologist simply wander off? Or was his fate more ominous? The project moves ahead, but FBI Supervisory Agent Janice Hooper asks Zack to take a look. When someone plants a bomb in his Jeep the day he arrives, Zack realizes there is something more at stake. Soon he finds himself in a desperate duel with an unknown assassin who may very well be more than his match.

☛On Sunday, September 22 at 11 AM R Lawson Gamble read excerpts from ZACA at (yes) ZACA MESA WINERY (here). We were in the shade of the tree in front of the barn opened by the special Country & Western sound of Buddy C. Everyone enjoyed the 2015 Zaca Mesa Syrah and listened to the author read from his own book while the breezes stirred our imaginations.
☛On September 27 the author was in Great Falls, Montana for the James Ersfeld Symposium on the art of writing the American West. The panels took place in the C.M. Russell Museum (what better place?).
If you haven’t visited in a while you will notice a new page and new feature, Trail Running. I enjoy learning about the areas I visit by running the trails I often find there. One can gain an intimate sense of the locality this way. I will update the page with additional photos and brief notes from time to time. I’d love your comments/observations on the photos.
Our own local Art-Deco hostelry, the Skyview, has ordered another 40 Los Alamos Valley books from us. I love the way this establishment is integrating with the town of Los Alamos. You can borrow a bicycle to ride down the hill into town and read all about the historic buildings (don’t do both at the same time).
We are also supplying Los Alamos Valley to the Depot Mall. It is prominently displayed at the cashier’s counter.
