Piedmont Author Releases Second Thriller

Robert B. Lowe's new book, "Divine Fury," is set in San Francisco and the East Bay.

From a press release:

Piedmont resident Robert B. Lowe's second mystery-thriller novel, Divine Fury, is being released today, Tuesday, following the success of his debut novel last January.    

Like his first novel, Project Moses, the new mystery features jaded San Francisco journalist Enzo Lee, who is pried out of his comfortable existence covering fluffy features and forced to use his investigative skills to expose the criminal conspiracies he encounters.

Lowe, who has lived in Piedmont for 12 years, bases his fiction in the Bay Area and uses familiar locations in San Francisco and the East Bay throughout his stories.

In Divine Fury, reporter Lee is assigned to cover a mysterious murder and a San Francisco politician's historic attempt to become California's governor. He starts to uncover a campaign of computer spying and political sabotage that turns lethal. 

“People in the East Bay will recognize a lot of the scenes,”  said Lowe. “There’s biking  on Tunnel Road, a chase on Telegraph Hill and a buffet of scenes at restaurants and clubs in San Francisco that everyone knows.”  

Early reviewers have praised this latest Enzo Lee installment.

“Divine Fury is well-written, suspenseful, gripping,” said author Stephen Woodfin. “It deals with a number of hot-button issues packed in a tight thriller.”

Lowe was a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter for 12 years, before he became a lawyer and more recently helped start and manage startup companies in Silicon Valley. He turned to full-time writing this year.  

Project Moses was an Amazon Top 20 Mystery this summer and was a finalist in the Best Indie Books of 2012 competition hosted by the Kindle Book Review.

E-book versions of Lowe’s novels are sold through Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Paperback versions can be purchased through Amazon and are carried locally at Diesel Books, 5366 College Ave., Oakland, and at A Great Good Place for Books in Montclair.
