Arleen Alleman Releases New Fiction, ALTERNATE CURRENTS

Alternate Currents by Arleen Alleman follows how Darcy and Mick's lives change after receiving the sudden news that their good friend, Charlie Scott, has mysteriously disappeared from the Seattle home he shares with his partner, Don, and their daughter, Penelope.

Before the Seattle detectives and the FBI are able to solve Charlie's kidnapping, Penelope also vanishes. As they frantically look for clues, they implicate a local antigay organization and its leader, two local business owners who are being harassed by antigay demonstrators, a flamboyant stalker who is obsessed with Don, and Penelope's birth mother. There is no hard evidence against any of the suspects, and the leads are curtailed when two of them are murdered. The authorities worry that Penelope has been abducted by an unknown vicious killer.

In the midst of turmoil surrounding Penelope's birth status and abduction, true to her nature, Darcy tries to help her friends. When she ventures into the midst of the case by conducting a freelance interview with a local clergyman, she is nearly killed in a vicious attack by an unknown assailant. Mick rushes to her side and soon overcomes his reluctance to get involved with Don and Charlie's plight. Together, they try to gather information to help solve the case. Before the hostility ends, Don also becomes a victim and then a hero and Mick must fight an unbalanced killer's intent on revenge.

Alternate Currents is the fourth Darcy Farthing adventure. It explores how prejudice regarding the same-sex partnership issue, as well as how other bigotry can lead to horrific outcomes.
