Overview

Sasha Solomon is having a bad day. Fired from her job as PR director at an Albuquerque HMO, she is dealing with an ailing mother and trying to figure out the origins of hallucinations that include conversations with her cat.

Sasha heads for Clovis, a small town in southeastern New Mexico, where she'll bid on a project for the Chamber of Commerce. While there, she will check in with her widowed friend Mae King. Mae, a local dairy farmer, is clearly out of sorts and shows Sasha the reason. There's a body in one of her stock tanks—a Singaporean aviator stationed at Cannon Air Force Base. Who killed him and why? What was he doing on Mae's land? Why won't she go to the police?

Sasha must clear her friend's name, find the murderer, and land the PR job with the Chamber of Commerce within a week. But there are other forces at work who will stop at nothing to keep her from the truth. Sasha soon discovers that there's a lot more to Clovis than a dot on a map.

"A ripping debut! Fresh and witty. Pari Noskin Taichert is a writer to watch."—Carol Luce, author of Night Stalker and Night Prey

"Hop in and hold tight! It's a wild ride with hard-nosed, soft-hearted Sasha Solomon. In Clovis, Sasha discovers shady characters, a hunky cop, and a passel of possible space aliens. . . . A beguiling new voice in mystery."—Deborah Donnelly, author of May the Best Man Die

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Something strange, including murder, takes Sasha Solomon, the former PR director of an alternative HMO in Albuquerque, to a southeastern New Mexico town in Pari Noskin Taichert's literate first novel, The Clovis Incident. This offbeat cozy's jacket art, depicting a flying saucer hovering near a cow, should lure ufologists. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    New Mexico Mystery

    This is an excellent book, very well written. Sasha, the main character and narrator of the story, feels like a real person that I got to know. She is intelligent and interesting and just a little weird. A small town in New Mexico named Clovis and the people in it are described perfectly. It's really like that here!
