    Mystery! Suspense! Drama!

    It all started with a challenge and several clues. Challenged were authors Ellen Hart, Lori L. Lake, William Kent Grueger, Pat Dennis, M.D. Lake, Mary Logue, Judith Guest, Monica Ferris, K.J. Erickson, Carl Brookings, Deborah Woodworth, Kerri Miller, and David Housewright. The challenge to each author was to write a story incorporating a certain number of clues into a story. What is presented to the reader is a collection of stories that are dynamic, intriguing and thoroughly enjoyable to read. Some stories are quirky, some hilarious and some dramatic. There are 13 tales of mystery. Tales telling of: longtime friends who are involved in a situation that goes terribly wrong a woman who finds her 15 minutes of fame and has to decide if she likes it a woman taking a wrong turn in life is given a second chance from an unexpected source a man loses the love of his life and is sent a reason to go on a man wanting to achieve the `perfect¿ life a daughter who finds an unexpected reward from a trip with her mother and more. Each story is extremely well told and a terrific example of how the authors accepted and rose to the challenge presented to him or her. The Silence of the Loons is truly a unique book that also issues a challenge to the reader. What is the challenge you say? The challenge to the reader is to see if they can solve the individual mysteries and find the clues embedded in each story? What are the clues you ask? Read the book and find out. It's a search the reader will be glad they undertook.
