Police officer Daniel O’ Brady has witnessed one death too many with the latest involving a child he couldn’t save from her father. He’s ordered to take a vacation and heads to the countryside when he has an accident with his car. He walks to a village where the people welcome him and won’t take money from him for food, lodgings or anything else. He meets Rosie the owner of a diner and the two are drawn to one another.
However not everything is good in paradise. The clock in the center of town never moves and a house with blue lights flashing comes into existence when Daniel comes to town. The house, surrounded by blue lights attracts him and when he enters he sees a man in another dimension who is in a supposedly haunted house trying to prove his theory that Slim Veils, energy fields separates the various dimensions and when the veil is slim enough, contact between the two planes can appear. Michael and Daniel discover the truth, one that they never before considered, and it will change their lives forever.
Michael wants to prove that the so called ghosts that have been seen by people are really entities from another dimension. Daniel wants to discover what the townsfolk are hiding from him. Neither man realizes they are linked together in a way that defies space and time. R.H. Stavis has written a fascinating and enthralling paranormal tale of what lies beyond the veil. The ending will come as a shock to the readers as the author brilliantly creates a solution that takes in all the possibilities from the adjoining sides of the veil.
