The old utility lay on its side, engine stopped, and uppermost front wheel still spinning. One dislodged spotlight was illuminating the top of some track-side trees.
A dazed Lindsay looked up… into the drooling jaws of a huge, rabid animal. Its teeth were tearing at the protective steel mesh in a frenzy to get at him. The mesh was coming loose…
…But we must go back, for this tale begins some 9000 miles distant in another country.
Adam Kirby was hanging on the end of a sun-heated crowbar, digging for opals at Lightning Ridge, Australia, when told of his inheritance. It was a country property in Ireland with an old, neglected mansion left to him by a grandfather he never knew existed. It was a gift out of the blue and should have been good news.
It did not turn out that way.
There was something strange about the old house; a theme of mystery seemed to hang over this place, a pervasion of some strange influence. The mansion held treasures, waiting to be discovered, but there were guardians that lurked… there …and thereabouts.
Determined to settle in this new country, Adam and his newly found love, together with Irish friends must overcome the perilous challenges that arise if they are to survive and forge their destiny.
