Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0970796595, Paperback)Downwinders: An Atomic Tale, a very well written legal and historical thriller, intertwines a contemporary ‘90’s story of the southwest with a bizarre chronicle of Nevada’s open air atomic testing from the ‘50’s. When a Utah rancher, his niece and their attorney come to illegally posses highly classified documents from a retired Nevada Test Site manager, the race begins. Can they deliver the “tell-all” documents, extremely incriminating to the U.S. government, into the hands of downwinder victims without being caught--or killed? And in the midst of trying to reveal America’s secrets, the three begin to reveal their own to each other.
This novel is a page-turner, based in historical fact that vividly shows how our past can either inform or doom our future.
