9780312850722: Solar Eclipse

John Farris returns with his most riveting thriller to date. Shay Waco is a stuntwoman on her way home with her eleven-year-old daughter when a semi sends her car over an embankment. The two must jump nearly sixty feet, and crash through a nest of conifers, in order to escape. Bruised and bleeding, Shay walks with the girl until they discover a lone house. Planning to call for help, they break in, only to find a family sitting around a dinner table with bullets in their foreheads. As Shay fights to free herself from the web of money and drugs she's stumbled into, the killers close in. Only by relying on all of her skill and training will she be able to save her daughter and herself.

About the Author:

John Farris lives in Atlanta, Georgia. He is the author of the classic thrillers Dragonfly, Soon She Will Be Gone, The Fury, and The Fury and the Terror.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Like Dean Koontz, suspense novelist Farris (Soon She Will Be Gone, 1997, etc.) once again seems to possess a knowledge of the physical world denied to most people. No shade of light, level of heat or cold, tree, plant, type of car, gun, creature, illness, aspect of anatomy, mode of any human activity, including cooking or murder, escapes his eye or handiness to name. The solar eclipse in the title here refers to murders in Solar County, California, all turning on drugs and money. Shay Waco, divorced mother of 11-year-old Pepper, is a stunt double for Demi Moore, as well as other actresses, and over the years has learned how to take immense falls without injury. Returning from a job and some gambling in Las Vegas, Shay and Pepper go astray in a storm and find themselves near a dam. Their Chevy sports utility vehicle is rammed off the road by a pickup, falls down a 60-degree slope, and lands for a moment on a weak tree. Shay and Pepper see the pickups driver now pushing a backhoe toward them, so they take a 70-foot freefall through black rain. Entering a nearby house to use the phone, Shay finds the entire Sinaloa family murdered at their kitchen table. The murderer, whose drug deals were being monitored by Sinaloa's eavesdropping skills, turns out to be Shay and Peppers mysterious assailant: he wanted no witnesses who could identify his truck. Soon Shay and Sheriff Tobin Bonner find themselves bound into a cat's-cradle of death and deception. Farris at his smoothest. -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
