About the Book:
Karen Moffett and Gavin Keoph are outstanding private investigators hired by Martin Burgess, a Stephen King-like blockbuster horror writer with money to burn, who wants to know if any of the supernatural stuff he writes about has any basis in reality.
He wants to send Karen and Gavin to California's Mt. Shasta, a mecca for New Agers and all manner of spiritual seekers. Mt. Shasta is said to be a "vortex" of various kinds of energy — magnetic, spiritual, and "unknown." The activity there supposedly includes alien visitations, ghosts, strange physical phenomena, and Lemurians, the little people from Atlantis who are said to live inside the mountain...
All of this sounds too fantastic to be true, of course, but Karen and Gavin are going to learn the very strange truth about Mt. Shasta... the question is, will they live long enough to share that truth with the world?
Ray Garton is the author of over forty books, including the classic vampire novel Live Girls, the thriller Sex and Violence in Hollywood, the horror novel Scissors, and three short story collections, with two more to come. He also has written a number of young adult novels under the name Joseph Locke.
He lives in far northern California with his wife Dawn and their eight cats, where he is currently at work on his next book, Dismissed from the Front and Center, a comedy about his two years at a Seventh-day Adventist boarding academy.
In 2006, Ray received the World Horror Convention Grand Master Award at the World Horror Convention in San Francisco.
