DIMENSIONS IN DEATH, BOOK 1 OF 3
“It’s not a lie that the Grimm Brothers now have competition; this series is already proving to be a recipe of thrills, chills and suspense that YA fans will absolutely love!” —Feathered Quill Book Reviews
Trona is a small, foul-smelling, mostly insignificant town in California. Besides a booming chemical plant, the only thing that characterizes this dismal town is dirt, sagebrush, and an enormous abandoned mansion. Seven years earlier, as Camm Smith herded a pack of little trick-ortreaters past the mansion, her young neighbor, Hugh, disappeared, becoming just one of many children who have vanished from Trona over the years without a trace. Now a senior in high school, Camm is still haunted by the old tragedy and is sure the answer to the mysterious disappearances lies hidden somewhere in the decaying mansion.
Joining forces with her best friend, Cal, who also happens to be Hugh’s older brother, Camm naively begins a perilous search for the truth. As things spiral quickly out of control, and others die, Camm and Cal discover it will take all their combined ingenuity to stay alive. An unseen creature, lurking deep within the bowels of the mansion, seems to have supernatural powers and is now hunting them. Making matters worse, they become entangled with hostile federal agents, who care only about keeping old secrets permanently hidden. Left with only their wit and seemingly ineffective firearms, they know they are running out of time.
Unless they can make sense out of the few pieces of the puzzle they manage to unearth, the monster will certainly destroy them, and like so many others before them, they will be gone without a trace.

“Although this is a young adult book, it still gave me goosebumps, and believe me I am far from a YA ... The authors kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the whole book. I highly recommend this book to everyone and I look forward to the next book in the series.” —5-Star Review from Linda Tonis of the Paranormal Romance Guild
