The Miraculous Plot of Leiter & Lott
What do a handsome optics engineer and a lovely TV producer have in common? They are both about to see the world in an entirely new light. But not before risking their lives in the process. David Standell and Valerie Lott are strangers to each other--and to themselves--until quantum physics lends its profound entanglement. More
A classic song by Chicago asked, "Does anybody really know what time it is?" Time has almost run out for David Standell and Valerie Lott, two strangers in career crisis, asking themselves "does anybody really care?" What's at stake is more than just their happiness, though. Set in volatile Dubai, and in the recently tragic Tucson which inspired Jonathan Lowe's award-winning suspense novel "Postmarked for Death," here is the story of an optics engineer and a TV producer who don't know each other yet, or themselves. Told in two parts, it moves from David's confronting the greedy televangelist who bankrupted his recently deceased mother---even as drone military aircraft begin crashing into the skyscrapers of the city to which Ted Cashman has escaped---to another desert where Val has just witnessed her boyfriend with another woman. . . and also a girl about to be murdered. Yet fate has a twist, and quantum physics an uncertainty principle leading to a profound entanglement. Inspired by "The Power of Now," this unique novel is both literate and gripping, with an ending that can never be forgotten.
The award winning author of five novels, Jonathan Lowe has published widely in magazines, and has had several stage plays and dozens of radio plays produced. He edits Tower Review.
