Windward Passage


From the writerwhose work has been called “truly, hellishly gritty” (Los Angeles Times)comes a gnarled mystery with shades of Philip K. Dick and James Ellroy.

In a parallel near future, a ship named for a jellyfishsinks into the Caribbean with its captain chained to the mast. Left behind is alogbook missing ten pages, presidential DNA hidden in a brick of smuggledcocaine, and a nearly completed novel. Tipsy, the dead sailor’s sister, and RedMeans, his erstwhile employer, travel from San Francisco to the Caribbean andback as they attempt to unravel a mystery that rapidly widens from death at seato international conspiracy.

With verve and humor to match the Illuminatus! trilogy,Nisbet has fashioned an engaging facsimile of our modern world, albeit withsnappier dialogue, amped-up technology, and even more clearly stated politicalprejudices. “Neither Norman Mailer nor Truman Capote has in their writing beenable to produce such an intensity as Nisbet has achieved,” writes Germany’s DieWelt. Pick up Windward Passage and see why.
