Then his clan begins a campaign to eliminate all Balians from the isle of Seare, putting his newfound home in peril and entangling him in a plot for control of the island that has been unfolding since long before his birth.Only by committing himself to an ancient warrior brotherhood can Conor discover the part he’s meant to play in Seare’s future. But is he willing to sacrifice everything—even the woman he loves—to follow the path his God has laid before him?
Death and Disappearances is a psychological thriller that reads like a 1950’s film noir. The story begins with Young, rich and promising novelist, Montgomery Clark, “Mont” and the disappearance of his wife. He and his wife, Petula Beaujolais Clark had been married about two years when life as they knew it began to unravel into the Paranormal. Petula grew restless, worried about her identical twin sister – who was institutionalized in Paris. After a spat with Mont at a club function on Gramercy Park, Petula leaves their apartment at 2am in nothing but her sable coat and a pair of fuzzy pink slippers –vanished. Mont elicits the help of his friends, Bea, and Peter. Bea discovers a lump on her throat and is advised by her psychic to leave the country. Mont’s best friend and former roommate Peter of London, England tries to help. But his car takes a dive off the cliffs of Bear Mountain and crashes into the Hudson River. Was it an act of voodoo as the psychic pronounces? With nowhere else to turn, Mont files a missing person’s report with Detective, Draza Vicaru (which means “Werewolf” in Slovakian), Mont wakes to find a robbery has taken place. A painting Petula created is missing and a note is left behind which reads, “You killed my sister, now I’ll murder you.” The note, to Mont’s horror, is written in blood in his own handwriting. Also disturbing, there is a dead sparrow in his top bureau drawer – witchcraft? Together, with the help of the psychic, a little time travel, and the New York City Police, Mont uncovers the dark secret about the disappearance of Petula Beaujolais-Clark. Discover Petula’s twin sister, the realm of the vampire, and the mysterious deaths and disappearances in New York City’s tony Art World. This novel is an urban, paranormal mystery. It’s pages are rife with psychic, voodoo, vampires and vengeful characters that loom in the nightmarish village alleys of Manhattan. The police detective, Draza Vicaru (which means werewolf in Slovakian) doesn’t believe Mont’s story. Is she or Pet, or even the vampire the female protagonist villain? Only the reader can decide.
