In 1962 Charlie is bored with his job as a securities analyst, so after a weird weekend in Death Valley he jumps at the chance to join the fraud division of International Investments in Los Angeles. Given an assignment to uncover a possible Ponzi scheme, he and his partner, Liz, travel to Buffalo, seeking evidence, and then to Fort Lauderdale where somebody is plotting trouble for them using Spring Break madness as a cover. The country of Cuba, recently taken over by Fidel Castro, may be involved, and Charlie might soon be wishing that he’s back in his nice safe desk in LA.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wanted to write a book that takes place in a time period when I was young. I didn't want to be concerned about cellphones or computers that give instant people instant answers and ways to communicate with each other.

He didn’t know why or what was going to happen to him.
How the hell had he gotten himself into this mess? Two weeks ago he had been a first-rate if somewhat bored securities analyst working for International Investments in Los Angeles. Then a series of events had occurred that completely changed his life. Images flashed through Charlie’s mind, and in a lucid moment he wondered whether he was hallucinating as a result of his head wound.
He thought he remembered taking a weekend trip to Death Valley, a place he had always wanted to visit. Something bad had happened there, but he couldn’t remember what it was. That had been the start of his problems. Or had it? How had he gotten to Florida? More questions filled his brain with tiny question marks that converged and became one giant question mark threatening to overwhelm him.
