READ AN EXCERPT FROM TUNNEL VISIONS

Tunnel Visions is a work of “faction” – a blend of fact and fiction. It weaves together the historical details of an actual water tunnel disaster in Los Angeles, the current struggle for control over California’s diminishing water supply, and a plot to attack the Los Angeles water system.

Working 5 miles inside a water tunnel in 1971, Willie Carter was one of 17 men killed in a methane explosion that became known in California as the Sylmar Tunnel disaster.

Nick Carter, Willie Carter’s son, is a USAR trained firefighter. His fiancée, Cindi, is an ATF Special Agent.

Forty-three years later, on a Sunday in 2014, they are swept up in a massive Homeland Security response to a threat to the Los Angeles water supply.

At the end of the novel, when Nick makes a desperate entry into the abandoned Sylmar Tunnel, the secret surrounding the death of his father is revealed.
