Desert Blueshift is metaphysical science fiction romance novel incorporating elements of change, growth, and expansion of consciousness. It is also an action adventure and a story of love.
A mysterious sphere lands in the Arizona desert. The trail of ash and sparks that follows the sphere through the atmosphere wreaks havoc in San Diego, drawing together a homeless man, Harley, and a doctor, Janet, as they take refuge in the same doorway away from the falling embers.
The trail of embers is also seen further to the east by an actor escaping from hollywood, and a waitress in the desert town of Gila Bend. The two meet when the actor, Mitch, comes in to the restaurant where the waitress works.
The waitress, Ginny, is concerned for her friend and colleague, Sally, who misses work without calling in. Ginny goes to Sally's house after work, only to find her held captive by Sally's husband. He decides to take the two women into the desert to 'put them out of his misery.
As Mitch is driving east after his chance encounter with Ginny, he thinks of her and suddenly hears a voice in his head telling him that Ginny needs his help, and he returns to Gila Bend. There, he encounters a dog named Boozer who becomes his cab-mate as together they search Ginny.
When the sphere crashes to earth in the desert, it destroys the tent housing a religious revival. The preacher escapes. The parishioners don't. The scam artist preacher flees, but is struck by a singular episode of guilty conscience.
