“Hello, Hallie,” I said. “I love that name. It was my mother’s name, too.”
“That’s nice,” Hallie said. She was about five and radiated the same heavenly, ethereal beauty that marked her mother’s music.
“Would you mind keeping Hallie company while I do the next set?” Emmy Lou asked.
“My pleasure,” I said. “Is it okay if Hallie has a Coke?”
“Orange juice, please,” Emmy Lou said, and OJ it was.
Emmy Lou led off with “Queen of the Silver Dollar,” which always made me want to cry. Hallie and I played a game with straws. That was the extent of my relationship with Emmy Lou Harris and the beautiful Hallie. But such things stay with you, especially if a couple of months later you see Emmy Lou on the cover of TIME.
A few years after playing straw games with Hallie while her mother sang songs that made even hard saloonists weep, I was a cop on the streets of Washington, D.C. My commanding officer was Lt. Joyce Leland, as remarkable—and indomitable—a woman as any I ever met. Proof: at a time when there were few women cops, let alone commanders, she retired as Deputy Chief Joyce Leland.
Fast forward some decades to an author in search of the right name for his beautiful, indomitable heroine. There it was: Hallie Leland. Thank you, serendipity.--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
Advance praise for The Deep Zone
“A smart, informative debut thriller with a pair of assertive heroines that draws us into the strange wonders of inner space.”--Kirkus Reviews
“Ever since Michael Crichton passed, I have been looking for an author capable of crafting such creative, intelligent, pulse-pounding tales. Well, the search is over. THE DEEP ZONE is an absolutely phenomenal read—THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN for the 21st Century. Ladies and gentlemen, meet James M. Tabor, the new Michael Crichton.”--Brad Thor, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Full Black
“Deep-earth adventure, scintillating science, and cutthroat intrigue collide with thrilling results in James M. Tabor’s The Deep Zone. Wildly imaginative but grounded in today’s headlines, the story left me breathless and awed. Truly impressive.”—James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Colony
“Just like the perilous cave that serves as its backdrop, this story is dark and terrifying—but with a light at its end. The book should come shrink-wrapped with a seat belt.”—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Columbus Affair
“The Deep Zone packs all the suspenseful wallop of Michael Crichton’s The Andromeda Strain, Stephen King’s The Stand, and Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth. This is a literal cliffhanger that alters the way we look beneath the surface of our reality.”—Katherine Neville, New York Times bestselling author of The Eight
“One of the most ripping, primal thrillers I’ve read in a long while . . . Mixing adventure with breathless suspense, James M. Tabor expertly takes readers to the bottom of one of the world’s deepest caves and makes the journey both harrowing and awesome. This one really stands out.”—David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of Creepers
