Alan Winter’s ‘Snowflakes in the Sahara’ is a literary work of art that combines contemporary events with a crime that only a Kay-Scarpetta-like heroine can solve
Alan Winter’s Snowflakes in the Sahara is a pulse-pounding thrill ride that will have readers on the edge of their seats as they reach the stunning conclusion.
A semi-political crime thriller that combines the pressing issues of current-day America with the excitement of a mystery, and set against the backdrop of a slowly creeping global warming threat, Snowflakes in the Sahara pits a clever female forensic detective against two terrifying men in a plot to rule North America.
When two devastating events hit the heart of America on the same day, the country is left in shock; the President’s helicopter, flying him to Camp David, crashes, leaving no survivors. At nearly the same moment, a bomb is detonated in Rockefeller Center, leaving three victims unidentifiable. Carly Mason, NYC’s Chief Forensic Dentist, arrives on the scene of the bombing. The identification of the victims falls into her hands, and she is determined to do everything she can in order to find out who they were.
Her investigation has landed Carly right in the center of one of the most underhanded and sly takeovers in history and, unwittingly, finds herself the target of a vicious killer-for-hire. Jeremy Steel, an American business icon known to all, has teamed up with Svengali-like mind-manipulator Lute Aurum to take over the White House and pull off one of the greatest heists ever performed: they plan to steal Canada. With time running out and the full power of the best killers money can buy on her trail, Carly is the only thing standing between these men and their diabolical plan to destroy the balance of the world as we know it.
A savvy, fast-paced story told with author Alan Winter’s vivid imagination and lively characters, Snowflakes in the Sahara seamlessly weaves together the nail-biting plot with events that parallel the nation’s recent history, such as anthrax attacks, the killing of Saddam Hussein, and the attack on a New York City landmark. A tale of heroic actions against all odds, Snowflakes in the Sahara is one novel that is not to be missed.
Alan Winter is the author of the novels Snowflakes in the Sahara and Someone Else’s Son. Born in Newark, New Jersey, he majored in history at Rutgers before attending NYU’s College of Dentistry and specialty training at Columbia. His training as a forensic dentist enables him to write CSI-like thrillers that, by turns, engage and enthrall. Never intending to be a writer, once he put pen to paper, he couldn’t shake the writing bug, and his innate talent clearly shows through in his works.
