The Story (Book Four)
Lenny Zambrusco is a lonely police detective who can't let go of the unsolved murder that changed his life. When Lenny's work leads him to a tiny college town hidden in the mountains of Virginia, he discovers a super secret research project being carried out there. With assistance from Dr. Elmyra "Granny" Mertens and other Gifted Ones, Lenny investigates the investigators and finds more than he bargained for. But as the whole scheme begins to unravel, Detective Zambrusco is forced to rely on his skills and training to rescue a feisty Gifted Solver from those who wish she'd never been born.
The Gifted Ones is an episodic series, with each book running 60,000 to 90,000 words in length (250 to 350 paperback pages). Each episode is a complete story in itself, but leaves "dangling threads" to be resolved in later episodes. The stories are chronological and connected with recurring characters, so you will want to read them in order, similar to many action/adventure/mystery series on television.
The Gifted Ones series is intended for an audience that is 16+. It does contain some violence and sexuality, but nothing graphic, gory, or explicit. It should be acceptable reading material for anyone from 16 to 106.
