Helping out Gilbert, a friend who’s suffering from late-night visitations, psychic investigator Mason is confronted with aliens on the roof, and soon finds himself caught in a whirlwind of paranormal events. Liminal beings contract him to stop a very real land development project in Los Angeles, pitting him against ruthless and powerful forces. With help from his boyfriend, Ned, and their roommate, Peggy, Mason manages to con his way into obtaining documents that might upend the whole project, but is it worth his own safety? A threatening visit from a shadowy figure and an alien abduction therapist from Texas have Mason questioning his career, his motivations, and the very nature of reality.
Praise for Penstock Canyon:
“In the world of crime fiction, few come up with true originality. But Christopher Church has, and with exciting imagination.… Keep reading—you won’t regret a single gripping page.”
“Church has vividly constructed a world peopled with characters I did not want to leave behind when I finished the book, a thrilling adventure through a Los Angeles underneath and beyond what we may already know. Church’s exquisite details are simple yet powerful … intelligent writing allows a surprisingly complex story to unfold with the perfect integrity of an origami animal.”
