After 27 years as a newspaper man, Peter Anderson’s career is slipping away, at least it was, until he stumbled upon the story of a lifetime. Sent to do a fluff piece about lights in the night sky over Arizona, he discovers far more than he ever expected when he comes upon a mysterious young woman held prisoner in a basement. After helping her to escape, she disappears before he can learn the truth about who she is or where she came from. His search for her leads him back to the lights in the sky and leaves him with more questions than answers. The only thing he knows for certain . . . the only thing he can count on are the two words offered repeatedly by his friend and guide . . . “IS BELT.”
I was asked to review this by the author. When I first started the book, I wasn’t sure what to think. It is very different from anything I’ve reviewed lately. In fact, I would say that’s one of the strengths of Bob: its uniqueness. But at times the story line seemed a bit too forced. I’m not sure I would have stuck with the entire book except … the strange and funny characters kept me reading to the end. I was eager to find out what they would do next.
There are plenty of twists and turns in Peter Anderson’s adventure. But the biggest one comes at the end of the book. The reader is left wondering what is truth and what is fiction. A fun read!
