Would you take an anti-aging hormone? What if you could keep your youth? If someone you knew was terrified of aging, and you’d invented the hormone, would you give it to them? Even if it meant discovery would cause you to lose your chance of winning the Nobel Prize?
An Award Winning Best Seller, Blue Coyote Motel was chosen as a quarter finalist in Amazon’s Breakthrough Novel Award contest in the mystery/thriller category as well as a Goodreads Psychological Thriller Book of the Month.
Blue Coyote Motel is a suspenseful love story which begins in the barrios of Southern California and spans the globe in such diverse locations as Provence, 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 motel.
Along with the anti-aging hormone, Jeffrey invents a “feel good” wonder drug to help Maria with her depression. As Jeffrey becomes insane, he begins to experiment with the wonder drug. Six wayward travelers, including an alcoholic priest, a couple who own gold mines in Brazil, a depressed widow, a struggling salesman, and a Native American pediatrician, find themselves spending the night at the small hotel. The next morning they wake up feeling better than ever. Has Jeffrey’s miracle drug delivered? Or is the nightmare of addiction only beginning?
Blue Coyote Motel presents an engaging look at the human frailties in all of us.
"I have always found it creepy inside any motel, much less a motel in the desert of Arizona. Dianna Harman has created a suspense mystery that will keep your juices flowing and your hairs on end–although they might turn grey from fright. Ray Bradbury did this with the magical merry-go-round, and Harman does it with a strange drug. You’ll want to lay off drugs for awhile after you read this. Romping good read."
