9781590589533: Five O'Clock Shadow (Dan Mahoney)

As the great balloon bearing the image of a clock swoops across the River Grande, Pauly Caton watches her husband of four days fall from the sky. Who is the naked child who scrambles from the gondola who flees when it strikes a sandbar? Why would he have been up with Randy and the pilot on the honeymoon ride she was too chicken to join? As Pauly tries to put her shattered life together, she discovers the lies have been Randy’s. A trip to El Paso uncovers more mysterious acts and points her towards the truth. But will she live long enough to find it?

About the Author:

Susan Slater is the author of the Ben Pecos series (Pumpkin Seed Massacre, Yellow Lies, and Thunderbird). Flash Flood is the first in a new series featuring Dan Mahoney. By day Susan works for a government contractor; by night, she teaches creative writing. She lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico with Roger and Emma, two Welsh Pembroke Corgis.

From Publishers Weekly:

The plot of Slater's gripping follow-up to last year's Flash Flood moves as fast and as unpredictably as the New Mexico weather, which can go from sun to blizzard in a moment. Newlywed Pauly Caton watches in horror as the hot air balloon holding her husband, Randy McIntyre, crashes into a sand bar in the middle of the Rio Grande. A small, otherwise naked boy wearing Randy's jean jacket flees the gondola, leaving behind two dead men-Randy with a broken neck, the pilot with a bullet through his forehead. When the medical examiner discovers that Randy had had an irreversible vasectomy, Pauly is shattered and confused. The children they both seemingly had looked forward to before their marriage were never a possibility. The more she learns of Randy's secret past, the more Pauly becomes suspicious of everyone around her, even her carnival-queen grandmother with whom she takes refuge in Albuquerque. With her blonde hair, heavy make-up, breast implants and growing list of ex-husbands, Grams stands out in an unusual supporting cast that includes tattooed men and lethal snakes. From the book's devastating opening to its chilling climax, readers will be captivated by Slater's fresh, gutsy heroine.
