For Immediate Release

Light Picks Up Where Darkness Left Off

 

Rockford, IL, September 12, 2015-- Light (2AM Publications, ISBN 978-0-937491-15-7, 530 pp, $19.95), Book Four of Paul Dale Anderson’s Winds series of supernatural thrillers, was published as a trade paperback on September 11, 2015. Light is a sequel to Anderson’s Darkness and features several of the popular characters from Darkness, Abandoned, and Winds. Unlike Abandoned, which alternates setting primarily between Illinois and China, Light takes place in Washington, D. C., Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kathmandu, Dubai, Cambodia, Thailand, New York, Chicago, New Mexico, and Texas.

Light is also available for the Kindle for only $3.99.

SYNOSPIS: Bill Ramsey feels no different than before. He can see and hear and smell, but he can’t feel anything and he can’t move a muscle. Ramsey was sent on a secret mission to infiltrate a terrorist training camp in Pakistan, but he realizes he was killed before he completed his mission. There were signs, of course, that he was dead, but Bill didn’t want to acknowledge any of them. He saw the light at the end of the tunnel not as something friendly but as something fearful. He avoids going into the light each time he sees it, and he does see it again and again beckoning to him but he refuses to go anywhere near it until he completes his mission. Yet there is nowhere else he can go. He can only float a few feet in any direction from the place where he died. Ramsey needs to find a way to get a message to INSCOM, the Intelligence and Security Command headquarters at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. Terrorists plan to assassinate all of the world’s leaders, and Ramsey has no way to stop it from happening. When the spirit of Bodhisattva Vajrapani confirms Ramsey is dead and urges Ramsey to go into the light, Ramsey begs the former Army Ranger to help him complete his mission here on earth. Vajrapani teaches Ramsey how to transfer his consciousness into another body so Ramsey can deliver his message. Ramsey is able to enter the body of Randy Edwards because Edwards’ spirit left the body vulnerable to possession during the ecstasy of orgasm. Both minds and spirits now co-inhabit the same body. Ramsey-Edwards convinces Debra Johnson, an Army Intelligence Analyst at INSCOM, that the threat is real. When Deb is assassinated on the steps of the U. S. Capitol, all hell breaks loose. Can reincarnated wounded warriors stop an evil entity from controlling the world or will evil reign supreme?

Light is a fast-paced supernatural thriller that will appeal to readers of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series. Part science fiction, part dark fantasy, part horror, and part supernatural thriller, Light calls upon myths and legends from around the world. Fictionalized accounts of history to include ancient Mesopotamia, Kathmandu, the Incan Empire, Iceland, the origins of Buddhism in India, and the construction of Angkor Wat in Cambodia lend verisimilitude to the story.
