Local author Paul Landes has published the second book in the Alex Boudreau adventure series, “Latitude 87.7.” The techno-thriller centers around Alex Boudreau, a notorious spy, black ops expert and double agent, as she races against time and covert intelligence agencies to find the love of her life and bring him home safely.

“I am still overwhelmed at the success of my first novel, ‘Wings to Redemption,’ and I think readers will find this book just as compelling, if not more so,” Landes says.

In the novel, Alex blames herself for the baffling disappearance of Benjamin Hunter, a noted philanthropist, adventurer and international businessman who had freed her from her own inner demons and the scattered dreams of her past.

Her search leads her through the dense jungles of Western Africa, deep inside the computer network of a politically connected defense contractor, until finally, she finds herself in the middle of the highest, windiest, coldest, driest and loneliest continent on Earth —Antarctica. What she finds there could impact the world forever.

While the book is a work of fiction, Landes says there is a fine line between what is real and what is not.

“My stories are based on what I call faction,” he says. “When the reader discovers the creation of a weapons-grade virus that can literally destroy a select group of people within days, what they’re really seeing is a potential virus that has not yet been developed, but it teeters on the edge of reality and it reads as if the virus is a real threat based on the science we have today.”

Landes says he looks forward to having Davis residents stop by for his presentation at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13, at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. in downtown Davis. He’ll read from and sign copies of his book.
