The Last Resort
- Crooked Lane, Thrillers & Suspense
Caught in the crosshairs
It’s March 2034, months after D.C. detective Jen Lu and Chandler, her sentient bio-computer and wannabe tough guy implanted in her brain, cracked the mystery of Eden. The climate crisis is hitting harder than ever: a mega-hurricane has devastated the eco-system and waves of refugees pour into Washington, D.C.
Environmental lawyer and media darling Patty Garcia dies in a bizarre accident on a golf course. Of the seven billion people on the planet, only Jen thinks she was murdered. After all, Garcia just won a court case for massive climate change reparations to be paid out by oil, gas, and coal companies. Jen is warned off, but she and Chandler start digging. Signs point to Garcia’s abusive ex, but soon Jen turns up more suspects.
“Kaufman's near-future Washington DC is at once unimaginable, terrifying, and thoroughly recognizable.”—Richard Reyes-Gavilan, Executive Director of Washington DC’s Public Library
