If anyone is familiar with this area then they would find this book very nostalgic. The author apparently knew the area well. The story line is interesting, the description of the area is spot on. I found it interesting that the writer even knew many of the Naval base secrets and the local gossip. Very well written book that takes me back to the days when I ventured into the desert, played with my dune buggie out in the hills, drag raced at the Inyokern airport, brought meals out to a lonely fiance stuck way out in the some secured area because he worked as a gate guard. The author knows how to have fun with his descriptions of an area that has so many mysteries.. I wonder if he trumped into those same hills, or if like Tannis he secretly resided in the area. Trust me when I say the truth is that China Lake Naval weapons center is a base with many mysteries.
