Non fiction Writer Jeffrey Conner considered the call from his health insurance company one of those weird snafus, but he insists he added his wife to his policy. The bank has no record of his marriage either and finally the hospital insists he picked up his wife and newborn earlier this morning. Adding to his fear factor besides the obvious abductions is that there seems no record of his marriage.
Desperate Jeffrey visits a renowned hypnotist and then private investigators. Sleuth Carl Jeffries finds information on Cordelia Adams who apparently and abruptly left her previous life behind and joined Jeffrey, but no one remembers the event occurring. Soon Jeffrey will learn what happened to his life, but which path to take and who to believe will leave him feeling like a WIZARDSPAWN.
This tale starts off as a Twilight Zone like mystery before spinning into a fantasy entry. As Jeffrey struggles with what has happened to him and what he alone seems to know, fans join him in his bewilderment. When the story line turns full gear into the fantasy genre, the book remains strong, but fans will feel a bit disappointed with the “explanation”. Still Larry Segriff provides a fine time for his audience.
