Arkalalah

I nodded, the memory of that last Arkalalah weekend causing my chest to tighten.
“And tonight,” Susan went on, “they'll have the bathing suit and evening gown
competitions and the talent contest.” She smiled up at me. “I played the piano.

When DC lawyer Jamie Maxwell returns to his hometown in Kansas after 25 years to help solve an old friend's murder, he gets involved in more than he bargained for. Delving into his friend's past, he discovers his role in a secret FBI/CIA project known as Salamander that has generated millions of untraceable dollars. Using his friend's clever clues, Jamie's snooping raises red flags in DC and puts him literally in the crosshairs of those who want Salamander kept secret. Torn between justice for his old friend and exposing associates back in DC, Jamie wanders in and out of his past amidst the events and colorful personalities of the annual Arkalalah celebration. The atmosphere provides a sharp contrast between a life and people Jamie once loved and his career amongst the DC politics and scheming that he has come to loathe. Arkalalah is a poignant story for anyone who believes that "you can't go home again," plus an exciting mystery involving an expose that makes "Iran-Contra" look like child's play.

Arkansas City has often been called "the gateway to the West." The name lends a lot to describing the town--a town that was founded as a border town to Indian Territory, a major trade hub to the Indian agencies in Indian Territory, and a major transportation center for those wishing to travel through the territory and farther west. Arkansas City started off as a small town with false-fronted stores but became a bustling community where the people were forward thinkers and pushed for quality and modernization in everything they brought to the city whether that was business, industry, or entertainment. Arkansas City is known for the Cherokee Strip Land Rush of September 16, 1893, interaction with the Native Americans in Indian Territory, farming, ranching, and aircraft. Although Arkansas City was a civilized community, it was a city on the fringe of a lawless and unsettled territory where outlaws lurked and Native Americans were forced to settle. People loaded their wagons or went by train to cross through Oklahoma to Texas, New Mexico, or Arizona, leaving from Arkansas City. Due to Arkansas City's location, interaction with major figures and events in history, and its importance to travel farther west, Arkansas City was truly "the gateway to the West."

When the Pentagon releases the biggest computer contract in history for bids, it gets everyone in Washington's attention, from the myriad computer services companies to the President of the United States. The multi-billion dollar NMS (Navy Material System) could sway political fortunes, make or break careers, and will serve to energize the FBI in its quest to uncover industry corruption. The political maneuvering, business posturing and personal vendettas surrounding NMS create a complex mosaic of intrigue, boardroom struggles and political chicanery at the highest levels of government. Not to mention the sex, drugs and industriual espionage that are intertwined as the proposals move from initial submittal to BAFO (Best And Final Offer) to award and protest.
