‘This author writes a cracking book. I could hardly bear to put it down.’ Grace J Reviewerlady

‘Guinevere is a little like a modern day Miss Marple’ Adele B

Welcome to Cornisea island and spend your summer holidays in a Cornish Castle.

Guinevere Evans has a dream summer job: cataloguing books at a castle on a tidal island off the coast of Cornwall. With her perky dachshund Dolly by her side she explores the island’s colourful history, tries fabulous local food and sees the gorgeous sunsets.

But when an old friend of her employer drops in, claiming a rare bejewelled wedding goblet is hidden in the castle gardens, strange events start to take place: several people turn up claiming they have a right to the elusive goblet, and a dead body is found on the beach.

An unfortunate accident, or does this death relate to the struggle for ownership of the goblet? Is there even a goblet?

Guinevere and Dolly dig in and discover plenty of motives to lie, steal and yes, maybe even kill. Can they prove what really happened to the victim and what became of the precious rubies that are at the heart of the mystery?

Cheryl Bradshaw's library of her New York Times bestselling Sloane Monroe Series, Books 1-6 (six complete novels):


BLACK DIAMOND DEATH: Charlotte Halliwell has a secret.

But before revealing it to her sister Audrey, she's found dead. At first glance, it appears to be nothing more than a skiing accident, until the medical examiner discovers poison coursing through Charlotte's body.

Audrey hires Sloane Monroe, a sassy, headstrong private investigator. As Sloane gets close to solving the case, a second body is found. With the killer aware that Sloane will stop at nothing to find him, he tracks her every move. Will Sloane uncover the truth before he strikes again?

MURDER IN MIND: Sloane Monroe has solved every case except one -the brutal murder of her sister Gabrielle.

Three years have passed without a trace of the killer until today, when a young woman's body is discovered in front of the local supermarket. Now Sloane is faced with the most difficult challenge of her life - finding the man who is a master at concealing his identity before he strikes again.

If you love exciting mysteries, Murder in Mind will keep you reading until the very last page.

I HAVE A SECRET: Doug Ward has been running from his past for twenty years.

But after his fourth whisky of the night, his steely resolve has started to crack, and he doesn't want to keep quiet -- not anymore.

If you're a fan of Sue Grafton and Mary Higgins Clark, you'll love these suspenseful mysteries.  

A New York Times bestselling mystery series. 

"Bradshaw is a great storyteller."

A twist leads Clay and Shali in a totally different direction with the regression protocols. Gaining experience from the past, they discover new ways to combat the Illuminati-like organization that has been trying to destroy them and their work for years. 

The dichotomy of their quest not only counters their nemesis, it reveals a future that could have only been forecast by the most powerful and wisest of oracles. 
 
Why Buy Book 3 of the Trilogy: 
> The Trilogy has 5 Star Reviews on 5 Continents 
> Thought provoking as well as action packed reading 
> Unique in merging multiple genres; mystery, thriller, suspense, literary, historical and religious 

Is the Trilogy right for me? 
Yes! This is a mystery/ thriller built on the principles of reincarnation and hypno-therapeutic regressions. The novel may appeal to those of most Eastern philosophies because of their view toward those concepts. 

If you question or do not believe in the possibility of reincarnation, think of the Trilogy as a fantastic story of science fiction, time-travel, zombies, vampires or Harry Potter. No matter what your beliefs, sit back, sip on a cup of tea and enjoy the adventure. 

Readers Compare Through the Third Eye to: 
 > Da Vinci Code & Angels and Demons 
 > The Indiana Jones adventure series 
 > The Torah Codes and the Bible Codes 

Background on the Third Eye Trilogy: 
Nearly six years of research went into Book 1 of Third Eye Trilogy. Much of that was garnering details on the historical characters portrayed through the possibility of reincarnation. The author scoured documented historical details to make interconnections between historical figures across thousands of years. 

He also conducted extensive research on hypnotic regression techniques used by psychologists, psychiatrists and therapist in their practices. This laid a foundation for the techniques used by Clay and Shali to find their secrets. The author personally visited many of the geographical settings portrayed in the story to ensure a high degree of accuracy for the reader's benefit.
