A Conspiracy of Tall Men

(1998)
A novel by

 
 
In this remarkably smart and totally absorbing literary thriller, Noah Hawley cracks through our last remaining illusions about life in America to expose the dark, eccentric paranoia that thrives at its center.

Linus Owen is a professor of conspiracy theory at Modesto College in San Rafael, California. He teaches, among other things, a graduate-level class on JFK and gives seminars on magic bullet theories and how the symbols on the dollar bill reveal the presence of a secret government leading the world toward biblical Armageddon.

Recently, Linus's marriage has had its problems, so his wife, Claudia, has taken a few days off to visit her mother in Chicago, leaving Linus to wander his empty house alone. But if Claudia is in Chicago, how is it that two FBI agents can show up at Linus's office and tell him that she has been killed in a plane crash on her way from New York to Brazil? And why did a man named Jeffrey Holden, the vice president of a major pharmaceuticals company, buy her ticket and die beside her on the plane?

Enlisting the aid of Edward and Roy, his friends and fellow conspiracy theorists, who help him sort through disinformation from federal authorities, Linus begins an investigation that will ultimately bring all three men to the heart of the American desert and to the realization that what they thought was the truth is really something far more sinister.

Crackling with energy and style, populated by gritty, off-beat characters all harboring their own hidden agendas, A Conspiracy of Tall Men provides a fast-paced, literate look into the ominous rebirth of American nervousness.
