[Read by Neil Shah]

Jim Nisbet, the acclaimed crime fiction writer from San Francisco, captures the absurdities of present-day America with a rare pungency in this noir gem.

Banerjhee Rolf, a bright, levelheaded Indian American scientist, is content to spend his days with his wife, tending his garden and studying his beloved astronomy. When Rolf's relationship with Toby Pride, his seedy, drug-dealing neighbor, and Pride's stoner girlfriend takes a weird turn, Rolf's placid world is shattered, and he becomes a fugitive from justice.

Crime, cosmology, politics, philosophy, physics, and more enter into this cautionary tale, which climaxes with the suddenness of a cobra strike and then delivers a denouement that's both stunning and absolutely perfect.
