Grey Daze, the third novel in the Lance Underphal Mystery series is dark, dangerous—not for the for the faint of heart.

A Supernatural Thriller – Something is wrong. As Lance Underphal pads softly across the cold flagstone, he hears her weeping. She is on her knees, hunched over in the middle of the room, her back to him, facing the dark fireplace. Something is very wrong. Lance wants to rush to her, but can’t. In a hoarse whisper, he says, “Callie?” She lets out a mournful wail from deep within as she turns to him, their infant son in her arms, blue and still. He reels from the blow. How can this be? They don’t have a son.

 At home in bed, Realtor Callie Harper finds she is not alone. At the cool touch of her estranged uncle’s hand, she shudders. She got the call a few hours ago. Uncle Harold is dead.
