Gone at Midnight: Sandia Park-based journalist, Jake Anderson’s true crime memoir exposes the real story behind one of the most compelling but least understood cases of the century. Gone at Midnight examines an enigmatic tragedy that’s become a cultural obsession and internet phenomenon. The book chronicles the final weeks of Elisa Lam, a 21-year-old Chinese-Canadian student who vanished from the notorious Cecil Hotel in downtown Los Angeles under mysterious circumstances, and explores the unsolved mystery of her shocking death. His search for justice and truth became a personal journey, a dangerous descent into one of America's quiet epidemics. Along the way, he exposed a botched investigation and previously unreported disclosures from inside sources who suggest there may have been a corporate conspiracy and a police cover-up. In Gone at Midnight, Anderson chronicles eye-opening discoveries about who Elisa Lam really was and what—or whom—she was running from, and presents shocking new evidence that may re-open one of the most chilling and obsessively followed true crime cases of the century. His next book is about the West Mesa serial murders in Albuquerque.
Bird Boys: The new novel from award-winning, local Santa Fe, author Lisa Sandlin catches up with the almost-murdered secretary Delpha Wade (The Do-Right, 2015) as she’s released from a hospital in order to be tucked into the back seat of a police cruiser. Her boss, P. I. Tom Phelan, sets out to spring her. He needs her back in his investigation business, where he’ll soon be chasing a skulking grand larcenist and plotting how to keep a ganjapreneur out of the grabby hands of a brand new agency, the D.E.A. Delpha digs through old records and knocks on strange doors to unravel the dangerous case of two brothers with beaucoup aliases―verifying that sometimes truth is not true, but murder is always murder.
