About this title

Synopsis:

Thirty years ago in a distant country a war raged. At home it tore families apart and split generations. The wounds and repercussions have since faded, but the secrets live on. This is what a newspaper reporter discovers when he stumbles on a story that threatens to unearth demons long buried and to unmask a new evil.

Johnny Rose is a successful columnist at a Los Angeles paper owned by a business tycoon with strong political ambitions. In many ways, Johnny has one of the cushiest jobs in the business. No walking the mean streets--often stories come to him.

Currently Johnny is trying to get a lead on an unidentified man found dead in the desert north of the city. But that story gets temporarily sidelined when a Vietnamese immigrant friend calls Johnny with a strange tale. Pham Lich claims he has recently seen an American pilot, reported missing during the Vietnam War, in a local restaurant. A skeptical Johnny agrees to meet Pham but arrives too late. His source has been attacked and killed, and the cops think Johnny did it.

So begins Johnny's urgent search for a murderer. Suddenly, the mysterious body in the desert gains new meaning'-the first trace of a dark, chilling conspiracy. Johnny's deadline keeps getting tighter, and the more he digs, the closer he gets to enemies of incredible power.

Chuck Freadhoff's Blue Rain is a stunning thriller about survival, scarred hopes, innocence undone, and the horrifying battlefield of absolute ambition.

At the scene in the middle of the Mojave Desert, Johnny Rose sensed something odd but wasn't sure what. His glance drifted from the base of the yucca tree over the rocks and sand and back to the body. He felt a small nagging at the back of his skull. He looked at the body again, and the nagging grew more insistent.

"What was he doing out here? Where was he going?" Johnny asked Detective Martinez but didn't expect an answer. "Is there anything near here? Any towns, mines, settlements, anything?"

Martinez shook his head slowly.

"So you're telling me this guy just dropped out of the sky, is that it?" Johnny asked.

Martinez nodded. "Sure looks that way, doesn't it?"
