The free review sold me on this story. I bought "Trinity Sands" because I'm a nut about the Manhattan Project and about New Mexico. Also, I'm a nut about a properly constructed sentence. Alistair Ainscott writes with nouns and verbs, and leaves the modifiers out to die in the sun. While I don't much like sentences begun with articles, it is trendy, and the author does compensate by using the active voice. Ainscott understands the importance of choosing just the right word. It matters.
One last dead giveaway this guy's a pro: He knows his subject.
