The almost nightly conversations he had with Adolfo Bioy Casares and other writers fed directly into his writing, and into theirs.
It is the tale of a man who retires to bucolic New Hampshire, where he is harassed by persistent and increasingly malevolent neighbors. We underrate the pleasure and sheer fun some people get by hurting others. DuBois makes it clear, as he makes clear how difficult it is to cope with forms of harassment hard to pin down and scarcely illegal. Isolated, the flawed hero flounders, but he won't run away and learns to cope by toying with illegality as his tormentors do.
A common murderer in the end but an uncommon planner, the hero handles his predicament successfully and to this reader's immense satisfaction.. Not content to let the professionals investigate this shooting, Cole begins to dig into the background of the murdered activist, as well as the anti-nuclear protesters who are gathering by the thousands on the New Hampshire seacoast, promising violent action in order to take over a nuclear power plant and halt its power production. But someone is also gunning after Cole, obstructing his investigation and making attempts on his life, as his inquiries bring him to question construction union members who favor nuclear power and the protesters who oppose it.
In a time of economic uncertainty, when Cole's own future is threatened, he presses ahead to solve this murder while also trying to protect the women who are closest to him. When someone shoots local peace activist Bronson Toles dead at one of the demonstrations Cole is covering, Cole looks into the backgrounds of Curt Chesak, leader of the violent Nuclear Freedom Front, as well as the head of the pro-nuclear New England Trade Union Council and Toles's family.
As the demonstrations continue in the emotional aftermath of Toles's murder, Cole arranges to interview the elusive Chesak at his secret compound, a meeting that puts both Cole and his best friend, Det. Diane Woods, in peril. Well-drawn and sympathetic characters add to the story's authenticity. The cliffhanger ending will leave series fans anxious for the follow-up. In an eerie prefiguration of last month's headlines, a calamitous nuclear accident, this one deep inside Russia, has flushed out hundreds of protestors against the construction of a nuclear reactor.
Bronson Toles, the aging countercultural hero who runs the Stone Chapel, a pioneering music venue, is joined by Curt Chesak, coordinator for the Nuclear Freedom Front. Or not quite joined, since Chesak is so wary of publicity that he never appears in public and is never seen without a mask except by his most trusted followers. Denise Pichette-Volk, the hard-charging new managing editor at Shoreline, insists that Lewis Primary Storm, , etc. On top of not liking the pressure of acting like a real reporter, Lewis feels stuck in the middle between idealistic young protestors like UNH student Haleigh Miller and his old friend Diane Woods, of the Tyler Police Department.
At length, there's a murder less important in itself than for its devastating effects on Paula Quinn, Lewis's ex-lover and colleague at the Tyler Chronicle. And there's a good deal more violence and soul-searching. As usual, DuBois works hard to give every possible attitude toward nuclear plants a sympathetic hearing, and he's honest enough to acknowledge that solving the mystery does nothing to solve the problems he raises so compellingly.
Only published before in the United Kingdom, the complete novel is now available to be downloaded. Out walking in new Hampshire's White Mountains with his girlfriend Sheila Cass, he has butterflies in his stomach and an engagement ring in his pocket. Then a thunderstorm hits, and they take shelter in what Sheila thinks is a relay station for a state utility. But when Drew enters the building, he realizes they have stepped into something far more sinister Of course there's an almighty conflagration at the climax, but DuBois shapes a tight sentence and the plot crackles along.
DuBois injects such pace into his writing that the story rips breathlessly along. Now it's America's turn. Samuel Simpson is a young, idealistic journalist from Canada, and seeking adventure, volunteers to become a records-keeper for a UN war- crimes investigation team at work in upper New York State. Months earlier, a crippling terrorist attack against the United States resulted in its cities emptied, its countryside set afire, and its government shaken to its knees. In the aftermath of this attack, a virtual civil war broke out, until UN peacekeepers arrived to establish an uneasy peace.
While Samuel and his team travel through the New York countryside, searching for evidence of an atrocious war, he quickly realizes that death is quick to strike from any farmhouse, road corner or rest area. Even more chillingly, he begins to suspect that there is a traitor in his team, trying not only to conceal evidence of this war crime, but working to betray and kill them all His callow but sympathetic hero, Canadian journalist Samuel Simpson has joined a United Nations unit attempting to father evidence against those responsible for a devastating terror attack and document war crimes in the ensuring civil strife.
In a twist Rod Serling would have been proud of, DuBois reveals that Simpons's beleaguered team, dodging gunfire in a shattered landscape, is assigned to the United States, which has fallen into anarchy after a dirty bomb destroyed lower Manhattan and other attacks seriously damaged electrical systems across the country. The balance between action and introspection is superb, and DuBois is confident enough of his readership and his premise to avoid a pat, upbeat unending.
Those seeking a thoughtful look at a plausible aftermath of further attacks on America will find much to ponder. Seeing a country driven to its knees by terrorist attacks, deprived of two centuries of civilized comforts and divided by civil war, the UN dispatches squads to keep the fragile armistice among battling factions and arrest the perpertrators of war crimes and document atrocities. Samuel Simpson has left his job as a features writer at the Toronto Star to serve with half a dozen comrades from around the world whose mission is to find SIte A, the mass graveyard where a militia buried hundred of civilians they massacred.
DuBois does such a razor-sharp job of detailing the surreal perils of the war-torn American landscape that the plot -- Samuel's suspicions that one of his mates may be a traitor, his separation from the rest of them and his adventures on his own, and even the quest for Site A before an impending renegotiation of the armistice offers amnesty to the zealots responsible for the slaughter -- inevitably comes off a series of anticlimaxes. The nightmarish can't-happen-here premise perfectly suits DuBois's dark imagination. Don't hold your breath waiting for the movie..
Every four years, the spotlight of the world turns to the tiny state of New Hampshire, as the voters in its primary help choose the next president of the United States. Usually, Lewis Cole, a magazine columnist and ex-Department of Defense research analyst, tries to stay out of the spotlight. However, when he attends a political rally for the front-running senator, gunfire breaks out, and Lewis becomes the initial suspect in the attempted assassination. With the Secret Service shadowing his every move, with his budding romance with a campaign volunteer in jeopardy, and with the threat of continued violence against him and the candidate, Lewis desperately tries to find out who set him up for the attempted killing, and who is still stalking him.
