Murder on Spirit Islandby Dora Benley, a young adult thriller, will be free on Amazon Kindle starting Tuesday. It is on a five day promotion. But hurry! An offer this good won’t be repeated this year.
Edith can’t go to school without finding Stripes. She and her lab,Tricks, search through the backyard with no luck. She sees a van parked in front of her driveway. They dog dashes aboard. She follows.The door slams behind them. They are headed up the road and out of town past her grocery store and even her high school where she was supposed to take a math exam today. She screams and yells but the driver won’t stop.
As the van drives farther and farther north, only gradually does it dawn on Edith that she’s been kidnapped. It doesn’t make any sense toher that the girl in the cab is Eliza Fitzhugh, her next door neighbor from up the street. It makes even less sense that the driver looks just like some guy that she saw long ago last summer in a movie of her parents’ wedding from twenty-five years before.
She finds herself transported all the way to a place she has never heard about before called Spirit Island. What do people there want with her? Edith had better figure it all out soon, or she might end up dead.
If you liked Murder on Spirit Island, you will also enjoy other young adult thrillers, supernatural horror tales, time travel novels,and romantic historic thrillers by Dora Benley including Back to Venice, Book of the Dead, Doom of Egypt, Rose Red, and Julia: A Romance.
Teenager Madeline Anthony-Pratt climbs over the wall to her neighbor’s house one night to retrieve her cat. Intruders appear. She hides in the shadows. They whisper in a foreign tongue and hold out a Pepsi can with black crud on it. They light a match.
Why are they trying to blow up her neighbor’s house tonight? The men aren’t telling as the match gets closer to the wick.
In Mysterious NeighborMadeline and her boyfriend, Drew, are left to deal with matters as best they can, and even Drew can’t help much. He had just enlisted in the military. No adults seem willing to help except the old lady next door, the mysterious neighbor, who is being targeted by the thugs. She has all too much to tell Madeline. And the teenager can count the seconds ticking away on her life after she finds out the dangerous information the old lady has to impart to her.
This is no ordinary plot. It’s bigger than 9/11 and far more devastating. It has been two thousand years in the making.
