A Great Good Place for Books welcomes Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Robert Lowe on Monday, May 21st at 7:00 p.m. He'll be reading from his debut novel, Project Moses. KIrkus Reviews calls Project Moses "...a taut thriller...with an ideal fusion of wile and wit." Moses is a high-tech, bioterrorism thriller in the Grisham mode with romance, suspense and humor. Enzo Lee, 37, a burned out reporter, has forsaken investigative reporting on the East Coast to churn out feature fluff in San Francisco. He likes his North Beach apartment, steps away from his Chinatown roots. Running, tai chi, great food, women who are attracted to his exotic looks. Life is good. Until Lee's comfortable life is shaken when he is ordered to cover the unexplained deaths of a local judge and prosecutor. Intrigued by the connection, and the judge’s attractive niece, Sarah Armstrong, Lee begins to uncover a bioterrorism scandal whose perpetrators - including government officials and Silicon Valley titans - will kill to conceal. When Lee and Sarah become targets, the question becomes whether the pair can evade their hunters and piece together the story before their time runs out.
