Paul Reynolds, a photographer who creates fake photos for tabloid magazines, wakes up with no idea where he is or how he got there. He can t even recall his name. A strange man lurks nearby, breathing heavily and slowly flipping through a book. Paul hears the man s breath, but he cannot see him. He realizes with mounting panic that his eyes no longer function. He remembers racing down a desolate West Texas highway. He remembers a cop who pulled him over for speeding. He remembers a shotgun-brandishing cook chasing him out of a diner. And he remembers a life abandoned, but he cannot put together the jigsaw puzzle that brought him where he is: blind, wanted by the law, and in the company of this invisible stranger. In the backcountry town of Armbister, Texas, where temperatures hover around a hellish 110 degrees, Paul s memory, intangible as a heat mirage, lies just beyond his reach, and God may be a coyote.
