About the Author

I started this mystery series when my job required traveling around New Mexico. In Dulce, New Mexico, I felt the presence of spirits, hidden in the hills, on every visit. I was disturbed enough to create the first story while working there. My mother died when I was 13, and I spend most of my life chasing her, so, in this mystery series, I created Cinnamon, who pursues her elusive Mother through the Land of Enchantment.

More About the Author

...unusual...distinctive...far from run-of-the-mill..."

That's what Publisher's Weekly/BookLife says about my new novel, In Gallup, Greed.

Lonnie is stabbed to death while his sister, Mirage, is in a black out. Did she kill him? Gallup, New Mexico provides the backdrop for greed, scrambled brains, illicit love, and murder in a mystery thriller. Cinnamon and Burro trail a gallery owner, a young boy with TBI, and a group of greedy young artists through the high desert, looking for a murderer. Burro suffers visions of the crime. Spirits communicate with the suspects. Cinnamon and Burro search for answers and the illusive Momma makes a phone call from the past.

My namesake, Eiffel Tower Lowe, "burned herself up" in the pink room -- or that's what Daddy told me. The pink room was right down the hall from my childhood bedroom, and there was a fireplace at the end of the bed. Did she burn herself up right there? The gruesome mystery of Tower Lowe haunted me all my life, so I brought her back to life for my quirky mystery stories.

The the mystery thriller series starts with the unexplained beating death of a middle school boy in Dulce, New Mexico (In Dulce, Disturbed). The investigators travel around the state, meeting quirky characters and solving crimes using Burro's hallucinations to provide clues. Cinnamon pursues her long lost "Momma," who abandoned her at the tender age of 6. In every story she finds another clue to Momma, and Cinnaman is determined to find her. At the end of 10 stories, 10 crimes are solved and Cinnamon knows what happened to Momma.

A dead teacher on the front porch of a Zuni, New Mexico home sends Cinnamon on the trail to solve the second mystery, In Zuni, Zymotic. Quirky characters, including an Aunt and a girlfriend provide clues to the crime and to the whereabouts of Cinnamon's elusive Momma. The exotic location includes a controversy over Zuni kachinas (spirit beings), part of a home-grown New Mexico mystery. Follow the trail to Momma and the killer in #2 of the mystery thriller series.

Salacious, silly, sad, and sanguine, In Santa Fe, Salacious, #3 in the mystery thriller series, takes Cinnamon and Burro into the underside of Santa Fe, the city different. A man dies of a blow to the head in St. Francis Cathedral and a cast of sexually confused characters vie for the role of lead suspect. Who killed the hairdresser Marco as he prayed quietly in a chapel in downtown Santa Fe?

In Roswell, Re-abducted explores the fate of a young mentally ill man who grabs a stun gun from a cop to kill an alien. Burro's visions provide confusing clues that eventually solve the crime and bring Momma heart-breakingly close.

In Carlsbad, Cavernous, finds Cinnamon and Burro in the middle of a crime based on bitter resentments simmering for years in the Carlsbad heat. Visions, the usual cast of quirky characters, and Burro's hallucinations follow many twists and turns in the fourth installment of the New Mexico mystery thriller series.

In Dulce, Disturbed is a truly original story centered around quirky and fascinating characters searching for truth in the middle of New Mexico Indian country. The main character, Cinnamon, demands our attention and her investigation is peppered by a creative look at unusual subjects -- schizophrenia, civil rights, and murder -- of course. Interestingly, her sidekick, Burro, suffers from hallucinations, which aid the two in their work. And the side story about Cinnamon's search for her mother adds another compelling dimension to the story.

Set in Hillerman country, In Dulce, Disturbed adds modern pizazz and cultural realism to an age old topic. Tower Lowe is brilliant with this fresh, new approach to mystery. More, please!

I love mysteries set in the southwestern United States, so this was very enjoyable reading for me. The descriptions of the location and characters made me feel like I was in Dulce. I would recommend this story to all mystery lovers. I hope to read the rest of The New Mexico Chronicles by Pecherer.

Lowe's great sense of place; her rich, believable characters; and her ability to weave a story that blends traditional culture and very modern concerns make In Dulce Disturbed a fun and compelling read. Hope we'll see much more of Cinnamon and her schizophrenic sidekick.

In Dulce, Disturbed: Great Short Story

Author: Tower Lowe
Rating: 4.5 of 5
Format: Kindle

Following up on a civil rights compliant regarding specialized education for a middle school boy, Cinnamon and her partner Burro Wesote travel to Dulce, New Mexico to investigate. Upon their arrival, however, they learn that the young boy they've come to help has gone missing. They also find the area educators to be less than cooperative when it comes to boy blaming him and his family for any issues related to his education. When a beaten body is found in the local cemetery, rumors run rampant that it is the missing boy and Cinnamon vows to get to the bottom of what is really going on in this small northern border town.

Tower Lowe's, In Dulce, Disturbed, is a short story, but you would never know it by the depths of Lowe's characters. Remember the early 1990s TV show, Twin Peaks, with its quirky characters, eerie and isolated local, and slightly paranormal bent? There is something reminiscent of that series in Lowe's work. Consider some of the more interesting characteristics in "Dulce" - the main character's name is Cinnamon - an unexpected name for a civil rights investigator - and what is the story behind her long lost mother who left her family when Cinnamon was just six? What is the deal with her partner Burro, whose visions are easier for him to manage with the medication? And what is with all the hostility from the locals at the school? All curious characteristics of a short but engaging story that I quickly found myself engrossed in and couldn't put down.

Great stuff.

I can't wait for this to be turned into a full blown novel. Watch out David Lynch.

Having lived many years in New Mexico, I appreciate the many insights that have gone into this thoughtful story. The lack of words, where they are not needed by the author and the characters are quiet, like thunder.
Thank you!

A superbly written story that draws you in right from page one. The man characters Cinnamon and Burro are amazingly quirky, and you start to wonder if they don't need a little therapy themselves! Tower sets the scene so beautifully with her descriptions of Northern New Mexico. A great plot, albeit an unexpected one, that follows an American Native child with special needs, two slightly off the wall investigators and a cast of bigoted teachers.

A really great read, looking forward to more.

I liked Tower Lowe's "short story" (actually, more like a small novella) very much. The characters are highly convincing with their psychological issues illustrated in a well-researched and easy-to-understand way; the visual imagery is vividly described; and the basic storyline, of a brilliant but psychologically challenged kid abused by his peers and neglected by the public education system, is a theme to which many people can relate. Looking forward to reading more of Lowe's "short stories".

I really liked this story, on many levels. The descriptions of the countryside are captivating, and just make you want to get up and go to New Mexico. The mysteries in the story are well constructed and keep your interest, and when the story end, you want to turn the page and go on to the next one. I hope the author turns this series of short stories into a whole book - it should be great!
