Silas Pearson is looking for answers. Its been three-and-a-half years since his wife, Penelope de Silva, disappeared while working on a clandestine conservation project in Utahs red rock wilderness. Having forfeited his tenure at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff where he taught contemporary western literature, Pearson has opened a tiny book store far off the beaten track in Moab, Utah, where his wife was last seen. But selling the occasional book is just a pretext for Silas Pearsons true purpose: to find his wife, dead or alive. The Red Rock Canyon Mysteries is a series of books that explores an iconic American landscape through an atypical antihero who is deeply flawed, reluctant and yet familiar. What Silas Pearson uncovers in the Red Rock wilderness while he searches for his wife creates a complex and spellbinding thriller that threatens far more than just one mans life; it threatens a celebrated American wilderness and all those who cherish it.
