Overview

Lost in a southern California barrio, Earl Dean has a hard time believing there is one living soul in this foul-smelling night who wants to be found by a salesman hawking vacuum cleaners. What awaits Earl in the faint glow of a distant porch light is the world of Dan Brown....
Dan Brown's brother has been killed. Dan has plans to handle the revenge, and Earl has strayed into the cross fire. Dan is the last of the road warriors, a murderous, drug-crazed biker who only thinks of laws as things to break. But more than Buddy Brown lies dead in the moonlight. From a time when the valley was the hub of the nation's citrus industry to the defoliated sorry mess of today, it has come down to one fact. Earl Dean, broken-hearted vacuum cleaner salesman, owns the last single acre of orange groves in Pomona. And like is greatgrandfather before him, he must come forward to claim is inheritance.

With the publication of his novel Tapping the Source, Kem Nunn was hailed by Elmore Leonard as a writer "who is one of a rare breed, who isn't afraid to plot and tell a story." Now Nunn tells about a salesman who strays into the crossfire of revenge . . . and endless terror. "A blackly funny thriller, and a peek at the apocalypse."--Entertainment Weekly.

    Perhaps, because I grew up in SoCal, I loved this book more than I might have if I had grown up in, say, Montana, but I found the plot, characters and Mr. Nunn's writing style (quirky) , perfectly suited to my literary taste. I have given this book to many Calif. ex-pats and it was loved by all.  I gave a copy to a friend who grew up in Florida, and she just didn't get it. So, it might not be everyone's drug of choice, but it certainly was mine.
