Loomis McTeague has good reason to fear his safe, little world in suburbia is skidding into a wrong orbit. His best friend Stu O'Fryer is involved in a disgusting criminal enterprise. Loomis suspects his wife Enola Jo is cheating on him. His new co-worker Zoey, actually a con artist, is blackmailing him with the compromising photos taken during their tryst. Loomis does his best to hold things together. But nothing he tries seems to work out. He finds a resolution of a sort, but at what cost? Wrong Orbits is a modern crime noir written much like Ed Lynskey's other well-received suburban crime noirs Ask the Dice and Blood Diamonds. J.T. Lindroos, who designed the front cover for The Blue Cheer (Pointblank, 2007), also dd this spiffy front cover.
