- DescriptionLegendary war photographer Vivienne Pink has five days to photograph servicemen about to deploy for active combat. Racing to meet her deadline, she heads to Las Vegas, where she'll capture images of men who may die the next day?and where she'll confront an abuser from her past to force a reckoning. Accompanied by her husband, a celebrated velist, and her best friend, a former CIA spook, Vivienne heads out into the Nevada desert in search of adrenaline, vengeance and the perfect shot. Told in a vivid, hallucigenic realism, Death Valley is a sexy, fast-paced tale that's part Pynchon, part Taranti and so radioactive you'll need a Geiger counter.
