Black Light

Free sample

If you have a supernatural problem that won't go away, you need Buck Carlsbad: private eye, exorcist, and last resort.

Buck's got a way with spirits that no one else can match. He was normal, once. Until Something Horrible killed his parents and left him for dead.

Buck has spent years using his gift to trace his family. It's his only hope of finding out what happened to them-and what made him the way he is.

Now the voices say that something big is coming. Buck already knows what it is-a super high-tech bullet train running express across a stretch of unforgiving desert known for the most deadly paranormal events in history. A place where Buck almost died a few years ago, and where he swore he would never return.

But as the train prepares to rumble down the tracks, Buck knows it can only be the inevitable hand of fate pulling him back to the most harrowing unfinished case of his career at four hundred miles per hour.

If you think evil had been put to rest with Halocline, john g rees’ 2nd
book of his ‘anoxic zone’ series,
think again. Evil does not sleep, nor take a break as men do. It waits, but it
is not still. Patient, but never at peace. It waits until men take their break
on vigilance. Then the tendrils of greed, lust, power and jealousy insinuate
themselves within the fecund soil of the unguarded mind. That is just the
beginning. Evil does not want to be forever on the inside, just behind the
eyes. No, it wants to live among men, feed on their fear. It wants out!


 Sechra was just a child when she witnessed
man’s cruelty in the extreme. Her young mind became black with hatred for what
had been done to her family and people. Now this is what you call fertile soil.
In a moment of childhood ignorance, she embraced the seed of evil in an effort
to fill the void of all she had lost. It sprouted. Grew. A dark hand guided
her, unseen behind Sechra’s sparkling eyes. Years of practice and natural
ability rendered the girl a master stonecutter. No one noticed the sinister
nature within her sculpture, least of all Sechra, until it was too late. Then
all hell breaks loose.



 



‘Out
of Stone’, john g rees’ 4th horror novel, once again grabs hold of
the reader by the neck and brings them to places they’ve never been. And never
want to be. That’s the fun of it!



 



Out
of Stone, takes two characters from his earlier award winning
anoxic
zone
series
and gives them headline roles. They fulfill them rather tremendously; bringing
us into worlds we did not know existed, showing us horrors from theirs and
other lives that immediately become our own.



We
follow Sechra, who was a peculiar little girl as
Halocline ended and just a child when
she witnessed man’s cruelty in the extreme. 
Her young mind became black with hatred for what had been done to her
family and people. Her Aunt Karuna was there more often for the girl, as her
daughter Riana & Vlad, her husband, the Voivode, were more involved in the
workings of their people and land in Romania. Karuna most definitely thought
Sechra was a unique child. Her determination and strength of mind were amazing.
She had been through a lot in her young life, things that would have turned
others mad. Instead, she turned it out to art.



 Sechra had turned into quite the sculptor in
her teens, continuing on to amaze and confound her family, acquaintances, and
then the art world, none of which had never seen such hideous visions, let
alone imagine them.



Karuna
Danesti felt the evil in Sechra’s work and knew it had to be out in the world
as well. That was what Sechra’s work was saying. No one noticed the sinister
nature within her sculpture, least of all Sechra, until it was too late. Then
all hell breaks loose!







Mile 81 is Stand by Me meets Christine—the story of an insatiable car and a heroic kid.

At Mile 81 on the Maine turnpike is a boarded up rest stop, a place where high school kids drink and get into the kind of trouble high school kids have always gotten into. It’s the place where Pete Simmons goes when his older brother, who’s supposed to be looking out for him, heads off to the gravel pit to play “paratroopers over the side.” Pete, armed only with the magnifying glass he got for his tenth birthday, finds a discarded bottle of vodka in the boarded up burger shack and drinks enough to pass out.

Not much later, a mud-covered station wagon (which is strange because there hadn’t been any rain in New England for over a week) veers into the Mile 81 rest area, ignoring the sign that says “closed, no services.” The driver’s door opens but nobody gets out.

Doug Clayton, an insurance man from Bangor, is driving his Prius to a conference in Portland. On the backseat are his briefcase and suitcase and in the passenger bucket is a King James Bible, what Doug calls “the ultimate insurance manual,” but it isn’t going to save Doug when he decides to be the Good Samaritan and help the guy in the broken down wagon. He pulls up behind it, puts on his four-ways, and then notices that the wagon has no plates.

Ten minutes later, Julianne Vernon, pulling a horse trailer, spots the Prius and the wagon, and pulls over. Julianne finds Doug Clayton’s cracked cell phone near the wagon door – and gets too close herself. By the time Pete Simmons wakes up from his vodka nap, there are a half a dozen cars at the Mile 81 rest stop. Two kids – Rachel and Blake Lussier – and one horse named Deedee are the only living left. Unless you maybe count the wagon.
