When a young woman disappears while walking along a local country road, the sleepy little town of Mesa Grande is plunged into chaos. Mystery buff Lake Anderson, vigorous in her sixties, thinks she may have a lead in the case, but a vicious attacker could end her sleuthing career before it can begin. Lake is perturbed when she hears of the disappearance of Sandra Molina. Having once lived in the same neighborhood as the Molinas, she can't imagine something so dangerous happening in her community. But that isn't the last of the crimes. When Lake and her friend Claire are attacked while working at Village Stationers, Lake can't help but wonder if it's somehow connected to Sandra's disappearance. Meanwhile, an eccentric customer is making both women uneasy, and rumors begin flying around Mesa Grande. Why is the owner of the antique shop acting so strangely? And why has no one seen his brother for years? Another ominous encounter at the annual Strawberry Festival becomes the first step in revealing a diabolical crime and horrifying cover-up. Join Lake and her friends in California's Central Coast area for this cozy mystery featuring a couple of close calls-and one very clever culprit.
In this new collection of poetry, author Francis Knoll examines our world of appearances and inevitable death, considering its many contradictions and failings with a will to extract meaningful existence. Featuring colorful imagery that focuses on the natural world, these poems approach the problems and frailty of human life with a sense of destiny and higher purpose. Knoll explores time, mortality, and emotion, looking deeply at the inner attitudes needed to transform or circumvent our difficulties while moving toward a wordless state of being—an inner silence—and a separate spiritual existence. These verses invite you to consider your place in time and delve into the mysteries of life. Flame Flame eternal without substance From matter to aether Holding, writhing, wanting all, Consuming, breathing, but neither Dying nor living and all, all powerful; Yet delicate as the petals of ancient flowers Dug up from graves to be seen now And at this very hour.

These poems are for you who strive to think the good thought, impart love to life as you can, but often feel lost to the practical and navigationally in charge of the world. You are invited to travel through these verses as a vagrant and beggar among spirits, seeking the God in each person, seeking the spirit of all things in life. This book is for those who seek knowledge that is felt as a diaphanous wisdom, and a vocation of generosity and kindness, humility and patience; not necessarily laudable skills acclaimed by the masses of society. I stand in the last stages of the invisible, with those compassionate, superfluous people who triumphantly carry on, tears in their eyes, with the illusive quality they recognize as sincerity, nobility, genius and heroism; in their daily focus, in their momentary focus, in their minute to minute existence.
