Synopsis from Goodreads:
At the heart of Blue Coyote Motel is a love story beginning in the barrios of Southern California and spanning the globe in such diverse locations as France, South America and the Himalayas. The beautiful Latina, Maria, and her husband, Jeffrey, a scientist fired from a prestigious laboratory, struggle to build a new life in a remote Southern California desert area as owners of the Blue Coyote Motel.
When Maria’s depression rises like a cloud over their happiness, Jeffrey invents a wonder drug to fix it. As Jeffrey’s condition unravels, he begins to experiment with the wonder drug. Six wayward travelers find themselves staying the night at the small roadside inn. The next morning, they wake up feeling better than ever. Has Jeffrey’s miracle drug delivered? Or is the nightmare only beginning?
The character development in this novel was phenomenal. There was a very large cast of characters, yet each and every one of them was equally well developed. The individualized characteristics of these people are all so real and combine in ways to create complete individuals who are stuck in circumstances beyond their control. Their actions and reactions are also in synch with the people that they are created to be within this novel. Harman spends a great deal of time and detail on this type of thing, which solidifies the characters and therefore the storyline itself in the reader’s mind’s eye.
The realism in this novel was just as terrifying as the story itself. It makes you think and it makes you worry. This novel also brings addiction to a whole new, and utterly terrifying level. It was a pleasure to read such an utterly unique and realistic novel.
