It took me quite a while to get into this. UFO's, talking cats, bloody hallucinations, alien abductions combine to make me wonder if this was the book for me. However, several strong recommendations made me give it a second and third chance. Once I got to the point where the story was more about the people and less about aliens it picked up and in the end I enjoyed the story. It was slow going at first but I'm glad I kept at it because in the end it was worth it. ( )

Writer Pari Noskin Taichert has crafted a breezy, fast-paced, slightly odd tale of a publicist looking for a job with the Chamber of Commerce in Clovis, NM. Murder, ghosts, a talking cat, and alien abductions ensue. First in a planned series of mystery novels set in New Mexico locales.

Published in hardcover by University of New Mexico Press. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0826331866, Paperback)

Sasha Solomon is having a bad day. Fired from her job as PR director at an Albuquerque HMO, she is dealing with an ailing mother and trying to figure out the origins of hallucinations that include conversations with her cat.

Sasha heads for Clovis, a small town in southeastern New Mexico, where she'll bid on a project for the Chamber of Commerce. While there, she will check in with her widowed friend Mae King. Mae, a local dairy farmer, is clearly out of sorts and shows Sasha the reason. There's a body in one of her stock tanks--a Singaporean aviator stationed at Cannon Air Force Base. Who killed him and why? What was he doing on Mae's land? Why won't she go to the police?

Sasha must clear her friend's name, find the murderer, and land the PR job with the Chamber of Commerce within a week. But there are other forces at work who will stop at nothing to keep her from the truth. Sasha soon discovers that there's a lot more to Clovis than a dot on a map.

"A ripping debut! Fresh and witty. Pari Noskin Taichert is a writer to watch."--Carol Luce, author of Night Stalker and Night Prey

"Hop in and hold tight! It's a wild ride with hard-nosed, soft-hearted Sasha Solomon. In Clovis, Sasha discovers shady characters, a hunky cop, and a passel of possible space aliens. . . . A beguiling new voice in mystery."--Deborah Donnelly, author of May the Best Man Die
