In this story, you'll meet Buck Ford, ranch manager, and Loco Chairez, the insane drug dealer who has taken over the ranch for the purpose of growing marijuana for a Mexican cartel. You will also meet a cast of highly interesting characters: Crash Ordie, Lengren Franklyn Moncliff, Delmore Ray Delmore, Detective Piper and Ling Ling the dry-cleaner lady.
Volume Two: The Curse Continues retains the covert paranormal theme found in Volume One: McKenna and Barnett but this book is actually an insightful and satirical, very clever Action Adventure novel. The language used mirrors present-day reality. Murder, suspense, madness and humor fill the pages.
Some readers may view this book as politically incorrect but author Len Francis Monahan claims to have stayed true to the language and attitudes of our time, stating that, "I represent the dematerializing stage of an epoch of human writers before all thought and literature are taken over by our Machine Masters. The importance of independent thought is still paramount, and writers should not be cowed by idea-police who dare try directing their characters' actions and speech. The essence of this book, therefore, is realism presented with great humor."
"Monahan creates much intrigue-and fun-and will have readers looking forward to spending more time with the characters in the next installment, Volume 2: The Curse Continues." - Maria Siano, Foreword Review

About the Author
Although Len graduated from the University of Toledo with dual majors in psychology and philosophy, he credits the nuns of St. James Parish with having taught him how to concentrate. Being a relentless daydreamer in grade school, Len thanks the good sisters for having so often "slapped me back into reality." As Len puts it, "Nothing like a good whack across the countenance to spark a quantum-leap return to the mundane," and jokingly adds, "I was twelve years old before I realized that big, red handprint on my face wasn't a birthmark."
The Rattlesnakes, Ghosts and Murderers Adventure Series is clearly metaphysical in nature but if you ask Len if he really believes in ghosts, the answer may be surprising. "Belief in ghosts is universal among people. Whether we believe in gods, spooks, or live in worlds of atheistic jaw-dropping awe, each of us is, unavoidably, and to varying degrees, under the spell of myth and personal folklore. So, yes, I am no different."
