Luke is a shy and reclusive constable in the Arkansas Ozark Mountains. Elected as the butt of a joke, he has never done anything to warrant being a law officer. However, when his cousin, Tyler, is implicated in his girlfriend's disappearance, Luke must become a real lawman. The case would be strange even for a seasoned detective. Not only did Tyler's girlfriend, Grace, disappear while hiking in the mountains, she literally vanished into thin air as Tyler looked on in disbelief.
Accompanied by a persistent but beautiful reporter, Luke goes up on the mountain to investigate. There he discovers the reporter is not a reporter at all, and the world is much different than mankind believes. There is a portal to somewhere else. Somewhere Ancient!
"If you are intrigued by the great civilizations of the Incas, Mayans and Egyptians, and wondered how they built those massive structures, you will love this story. If you enjoy woman characters that can kick butt and take names, don't miss this one." Frank Isle.
