Private investigator Dan Landis just wanted to have a nice, relaxing vacation with his best friend, Leroy "Doc" Brown. They've booked two rooms at the luxurious Gray Ghost Inn in scenic Warrenton, Virginia. Then Dan's new partner, Abbey, talks herself into going along. And, wherever Dan and Abbey go, trouble isn't too far behind. Dan, Abbey and Doc get snowed in with a crazy crowd: Betsey Butler, the Southern Belle hostess; her obnoxious brother Dave "Big Bear" Butler; and Dave's ex-wife, Em. When a body turns up in the library, Dan realizes his simple vacation isn't so simple anymore. Now, Dan and his two best friends are trapped in the Gray Ghost Inn with a killer, and it'll take all of his wits, charm and detective skills to solve the mystery before it's too late. Continuing the story begun in "The Five Santas", and picking up immediately after the events from "Cult Of Koo Kway", the adventure continues in the third exciting installment of the "Oncoming Storm" quartet. Jay Mims continues his unique brand of storytelling as readers go on a wild and entertaining ride into the eccentric world of Dan Landis and friends.

So here I am in book three. Dan is looking forward to a relaxing vacation and spending some guy time with his best friend, when his partner, Abbey, throws a wrench in the works and invites herself along. Things will never be the same at The Gray Ghost Inn. It’s not their fault when everyone gets snowed in with a killer. Someone left a dead body in the library. So now it’s back to work. Time to question the suspects(guests) and sniff out clues, and play catch up with the killer. Each book in this series is full of mysteries. In this one, you have the mystery of Abbey and Dan. Will they ever get together? Or does the author have “Casa Blanca” plans for these two? “Put your lips together and…” And you have the mystery of who the killer is and why. I felt like I was in a “Columbo” episode. Remember that show? And we are all playing the board game, Clue. I know, I’m making some movie references, but it’s only fitting as Dan Landis does it too. There’s one more mystery. One for me. I’m wondering how the author comes up with these zany cases and when or if he’ll finally bring Abbey and Dan together. I’m in til the end and hope the ice breaks in the next story. Until then, “Here’s looking at you kid.”
