From the Publisher:
In Slipstream, Leslie Larson traces the intertwining paths of five characters as each struggles to stay afloat in the face of major setbacks, minor failures, and a reckless pursuit of elusive second chances. When Rudy loses his job cleaning jets at the airport, his sanity and his marriage threaten to follow. While his wife, Inez, secretly saves her pennies and plots an escape, his coworker Wylie, a bartender at LAX, is about to receive the surprise of his life. Meanwhile, Wylie?s brother, Logan, freshly released from jail, tries desperately to stay out of trouble while traipsing through a minefield of temptation. And Logan?s daughter Jewell is nursing a heart broken once by an unfaithful girlfriend and again by a father who can?t seem to stick around. Though they don?t know it, these five people are headed toward an explosive event that will have consequences for them all.

Deftly weaving suspense, humor, and revelation, Slipstream is a rich human drama with the breathless pace of a thriller and the soul of classic noir.

Annotation:
In Leslie Larson's relentlessly noir, keenly observant debut thriller, the lives of five completely alienated people intersect with disastrous consequences at Los Angeles' international airport. Meet Wylie, a depressed airport bartender; Wylie's convict brother, Logan; Logan's emotionally damaged daughter, Jewell; and finally, Rudy and Inez, a couple whose marriage becomes increasingly rocky when Rudy loses his job cleaning jet engines. Deep currents of foreboding run throughout the novel as Larson primes her characters for a collision course.

Praise

"Larson's debut occasionally trips through some awkward plotting in reaching its nervy (if slightly undercooked) climax, but her exquisitely calibrated prose makes clear she knows these people to their bones." --Rating: B - Adam B. Vary May 19, 2006
