Hello Jerry..Gary…Hey You!

So is Toy’s R Us coming back? Did they mess with my emotions? I truly do not know how I feel about this. On one hand I was really sad to see it go, on the other hand I really only went once a year to do Christmas shopping, so it’s not that big of a loss. I do feel a bit messed with though. Not sure why. I don’t think the giant giraffe knows who I am. I waved at him once and he waved back. That was years ago, and I don’t think he remembers me.

Nothing New Under The Sun: A Suspense Thriller (A Carter Devereux Mystery Thriller Book 1)
by JC Ryan, Rosamond Carter
3.9 Stars (129 Reviews)
Genre:

FREE for a limited time

The more Carter Devereux, a professor of archeology, researches and studies the history of the human species, the more he becomes convinced that Solomon was onto something when he said:

“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there anything whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It hath been already of old time, which was before us. There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.” Ecclesiastes 1:9 -11 (Circa 940 BC).

Carter’s research and exploration into this history takes him to South America, India, and the Middle East, where he makes mind-boggling discoveries which challenge our entire view of human history. And before long, Carter finds himself with not only a large number of critics from across the world, but also a number of ardent followers.

Through the ages kings, rulers, power seekers and governments, have been trying secretly, and sometimes not so secretly, to get their hands on artifacts believed to have immense power. Examples include the Holy Grail, the Ark of the Covenant, Bachal Isu – the staff of Moses, carried by David, and the King of Kings, Jesus Christ, the Spear of Destiny, the time machine “the glock” created by the Germans during WWII, and ancient lost cities with hidden fortunes of gold and artifacts with unimaginable powers.

There is a no shortage of unscrupulous, power hungry people who will do anything, including kill, to possess these relics- if they exist.

Most frightening of them all are the ancient texts that speak of earth’s destruction by nuclear weapons thousands of years ago.

Do those nuclear weapons still exist?

If so where are they?

Can Carter Devereux discover them before anyone else can?

~~~

Nothing New Under The Sun is the first book in J C Ryan’s Carter Devereux Mystery Thriller series: a full-length novel and a thought-provoking mystery about the discovery of antediluvian human civilizations and the terrifying consequences of digging up the past.

Seems Reasonable To Me

I did something yesterday that I never thought I would do in October. I went Christmas Tree shopping. I dragged the whole family, including my mother in law, to two hardware stores to check out the fake trees. Our current fake tree is losing all of it’s needles and when I bought it ten years ago I was overjoyed to never have to deal with a bunch of needles on my floor again. Now the thing drops them worse than a real tree. Times up tree. You are OUT! I thought it was going to be a simple trip. I want a tree with lights and maybe, if I am feeling like I won the Lotto, I would buy the ones that have the pine cones on it. I didn’t think I would be picky. That is until I got to the store and realized there are ten million different kinds of fake trees. Skinny, fat, 64 function, 51 function, or two function lights…. wait… WHAT? How can there be 64 functions to lights? On or off. Is off one of the functions? I can’t EVEN right now on that one. So of the two stores and 700 tree choices I had. We couldn’t find a tree we liked. With all those choices, we walked out of the store feeling like reasonable people who couldn’t pick a tree that we liked out off 700 to choose from. Seriously..we felt reasonable.

FREE for a limited time

Mysterious attacks. Mischievous nieces. Can a clueless uncle catch a tech-savvy killer… and be home before bedtime?

When a freak accident hospitalizes Marty Golden’s sister and condemns him to babysitter duty, he thinks it’s just another case of hardwired bad luck in Silicon Valley. Until a suspicious murder suggests the mishap was no mere coincidence. Something must be done.

Too bad this quirky, fashion-backward uncle isn’t exactly hero material.

Convinced his sister is in mortal danger, this amateur sleuth follows clues to an oddball array of suspects. Armed with nothing but an eye for detail and powers of self-delusion, Marty tangles with gangsters, a cantankerous school secretary, and a perplexing woman he can’t help but fall for. Glitches in his investigation seem like a piece of cake compared to dinner-prep and bedtime stories with his two precocious, pre-teen nieces.

Can Marty catch the culprit, save his sister, and get his life back in order before he gets unplugged?

Uncle and Ants is the first novel in a refreshingly modern mystery series set in Silicon Valley. If you like clever humor, sassy side characters, and average Joes facing extraordinary circumstances, then you’ll love this twisty mystery.

Genre: Thrillers | Horror

Out of the white tundra of Alaska’s North Slope, two Inuit hunters emerge on dog sleds carrying a mysterious captive, chained under animal hides and locked in a sapling cage. They deliver their catch to a cargo plane sent out by the Sheriff in Fairbanks. The pilot notices a corpse on the sled — a third musher, killed in the capture, his face mauled with teeth marks that appear more human than animal.

Eighteen-year-old Kris Carlson needs a second chance. Blinded years before in a freak accident following a trophy-winning downhill ski race, Kris is trying to restart her life by learning how to ski again — without eyesight. A new audible-radar technology makes this miracle possible, and its inventor, Fairbanks grad student Josh Marino, hopes Kris will be the one to prove it works.

When the initial trials prove promising, Kris heads off to the mountains for a weekend of skiing with the ski school director and her daughter. But the three women encounter a fierce winter storm and are forced to take refuge in a trapper’s cabin.

Kris soon discovers the trapper’s mauled corpse. It seems a plane has gone down in the storm, and there’s some kind of monstrous beast on the loose…
