FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Jun. 17, 2009 - Huntsville, AL  -- Best-selling author Stephanie Osborn will be appearing at the Florence-Lauderdale County Alabama Public Library to discuss and sign copies of her five-star novel, Burnout: the mystery of Space Shuttle STS-281. She will be available for signing and questions from 12:00-2:00pm on Saturday, 27 June, and will discuss the relationship between her book and the real-life Shuttle Columbia disaster, which occurred with Osborn’s friend among the onboard crew. Copies of the book will be available.

Burnout is the story of a fictional Space Shuttle disaster which turns out not to be an accident. As the principal investigators dig deeper, they discover the signs of something unusual - and as they do, friends, lovers, and colleagues involved in the investigation begin to die in mysterious “accidents.” They find themselves on the run, searching for answers, wondering who they can - and can’t - trust, in a game of cat and mouse that spans more than one continent, and may span more than one planet.

What happened to the Shuttle? Who is responsible and why? Why is the government calling it an accident? Why is someone willing to kill to keep it a secret? And how big is the conspiracy?

What people are saying about Burnout:

"I opened the cover...in the morning and couldn´t put it down! This intriguing maze of plot twists, danger, intrigue and excitement would make an excellent movie."
~~Ann B. Keller, author of Vortex of Revelation

"...A real page-turner...a great read...recommended."
~~jkOnTheRun/ Mobile Tech Manor, GigaOm Syndicate for the New York Times
