by Michael Allan Scott

Something is wrong. As Lance Underphal pads softly across the cold flagstone, he hears her weeping. She is on her knees, hunched over in the middle of the room, her back to him, facing the dark fireplace. Something is very wrong. Lance wants to rush to her, but can’t. In a hoarse whisper, he says, “Callie?” She lets out a mournful wail from deep within as she turns to him, their infant son in her arms, blue and still. He reels from the blow. How can this be? They don’t have a son.

At home in bed, Realtor Callie Harper finds she is not alone. At the cool touch of her estranged uncle’s hand, she shudders. She got the call a few hours ago. Uncle Harold is dead.

Grey Daze, the third novel in the Lance Underphal Mystery series, is based on real events. Dark, dangerous, it’s not for the for the faint of heart.

by Claude Dancourt

Neve Lass doesn’t investigate cheating spouses. She works for insurance companies, looks for missing people, and gathers information for researchers. And from time to time, she also clashes with Detective Ian “Jerk” Braich Jr.

Ian would love to wring Neve’s neck. He just can’t stand amateur sleuths, and even less the know-it-all, feminist type. And he can’t forget he owes his worst memories to her.

But one night, Neve is attacked in her own office. When Ian is assigned to the case, they have no choice but to learn to work together. But what do a dead homeless man, terrorists, and the mafia have to do with an art heist that happened twenty years ago? They’d better find the answer quickly, because their foes are as powerful as they are determined to see them dead.

The Mysterious SEALED Temple Door NO ONE Can Open: Last Door of Padmanabhaswamy

June 15, 2017

https://www.facebook.com/beyondsciencetv/videos/1872083499712241/

CHAMBER B – THE SIXTH DOOR

The Padmanabhaswamy Temple has six enormous secret vaults that contained its many treasures. These were named Chambers A through F. The seven-member committee was able to open five of these vaults, with exceptional difficulty.

They have been able to open and reopen chambers C through F through the years. It was said the committee was able to visit these chambers for at least eight times. Chamber A took a bit of time to open. The impressive architecture of the Temple was evident in the door’s construction. It took more than a day to open Chamber A with existing human technology.

Regardless of these efforts, all but one of the six vaults were accessed – the mysterious Chamber B.

In fact, Chamber B is not part of the documented Temple Treasury. No one knows what lies beyond its gates. It is said that the chamber is holy in nature, as it houses an idol of Sri Padmanabha and many valuables of mystic origins. It is said that the chamber may very well have walls of solid gold. It may even contain the largest undiscovered treasure in world history.

Unfortunately, the only thing people have seen is its gates, guarded by two enormous embossed cobras. In fact, aside from these, the steel door of Chamber B does not have and bolts, latches, or other means of entry.

Much to the fascination of the committee members, Chamber B has in fact three doors. The first one has metal grills on it. It is the one visible to the naked eye, and is accessible like the other chambers. However, they discovered a second wooden door behind it. Upon unlocking this door came yet another door, a menacing door made of iron that was slammed shut. There appears to be no way of getting through it.

It is said that any human attempts are made with technology to open the door will unleash an unspeakable calamity in the city. Some even say opening the door against its will can release unspeakable horrors throughout India, and perhaps the rest of the world.

Gavin stops on their way to Jane’s digs, to pick up her clothes, when he sees his boss out on a job. After he explains why he’s stopped, Jane tells him that two women were killed inside the house and their ghosts were trying to get the attention of his boss. From his boss’s first meeting with Jane, showing him how much of an asset she’d be to his nick, Gavin was asked the next morning if he’d take Jane with him to work. His boss, after a lengthy call to MI5, informed them that Gavin was supposed to head the murder squad and the new extension, mothballed for some time, was their new department. It wasn’t long before they were called out. Gavin took charge, but after a few cases with the same MO, he soon realised they’d need the help of the other cell. Outnumbered on this case, and the safety of the human side of his team paramount, he made the call. No other option.

FREDA JAMES, the VP of Sales, determined to make a name for herself in the competitive software industry, faces her toughest adversary to date. What she couldn’t possibly know is STACY GREEN, the company’s new manufacturing consultant, has a dark secret.
Wildly driven to eliminate any female standing in the way of her own success, Stacy quickly learns Freda is a force to be reckoned with in the boardroom, but not without her own demons.
