Novel set at desert lake

Pyramid Lake may not be recognizable in Pyramid Lake by Paul Draker, a new science fiction novel.

The serene desert lake is the unlikely site for a murder mystery and a secret government facility. The protagonist at a DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) laboratory turns his computer—named Frankenstein—loose for all the right reasons and then must deal with the consequences.

Kirkus Reviews: “After his ecological thriller (New Year Island, 2013), Draker has based his new novel in sci-fi, but he dabbles in multiple genres, including action and espionage. … A familiar sci-fi tale but one that Draker paints in his own profound and original colors.”
