Thayer (Saint Mudd, LJ 5/15/92) delivers a haunting story that concerns two tortured Vietnam vets who love the same woman, fierce weather events that coincide with a series of murders, the world of television news, and the debate on capital punishment. Dixon Bell is a television meteorologist with an eerie gift for reading the weather. Rick Beanblossom is a news producer who hides his disfigured face behind a mask. Andrea Labore is the beautiful cop turned reporter whom they both love. Meanwhile, the Calendar Killer is strangling a woman each season during a significant weather event. When Bell is arrested and accused of the murders, Beanblossom and Labore join forces to prove his innocence. The novel's characters are deeply developed, and the riveting plot is cloaked in descriptive episodes of weather. Additionally, readers will receive a fascinating view of the intense machinations of television news productions. Recommended for fiction collections.

The back copy of this paperback novel is very misleading. In it is says that a serial killer is loose in Minnesota and is obsessed with Channel 7 reporter, Andrea Labore. Read morePublished on April 8 2002 by Amazon Customer
