ABANDONED: A Lively Deadmarsh Novel: Arrivals and Awakenings
On December 31st, 1981, high atop a snowy mountain peak in the rugged interior of British Columbia, Canada, the Sinclair Resort Hotel is holding its annual media gala and award show. Ninety-eight beautiful people eat, drink, laugh and dance inside its opulent grand ballroom.
When the clock strikes twelve, a cheer goes up and the music swells; balloons drop and streamers swirl.
Then blackness descends…
Fifteen seconds later, the power returns and every living soul inside the ballroom has vanished, never to be seen again. An investigation led by RCMP Chief Inspector John Harder turns up no trace of the missing patrons and the resort is shuttered for forty years.
Contacted by an enigmatic holding company that wants to reopen the resort, preternatural investigator Lively Deadmarsh and his psychic twin sister, Minerva, are brought in to solve this decades-old mystery once and for all.
As they explore the resort, they discover things are not what they seem and that the hotel is far from abandoned. They soon learn that should they fail in their investigation, they may become part of the mystery forever.
