|Plot Summary of Daniel's Veil|
Medallion, March 2005, 6.99, 308 pp.
Police officer Daniel O' Brady has witnessed one death too many with the latest involving a child he couldn't save from her father. He's ordered to take a vacation and heads to the countryside when he has an accident with his car. He walks to a village where the people welcome him and won't take money from him for food, lodgings or anything else. He meets Rosie the owner of a diner and the two are drawn to one another.
However not everything is good in paradise. The clock in the center of town never moves and a house with blue lights flashing comes into existence when Daniel comes to town. The house, surrounded by blue lights attracts him and when he enters he sees a man in another dimension who is in a supposedly haunted house trying to prove his theory that energy fields separates the various dimensions and when the veil is slim enough, contact between the two planes can appear.
