Robert M. Roberts grew up in the Midwest and spent most of his childhood weekends in movie theaters. When he wasn’t taking in a movie, he was at his parent’s beer tavern observing the unique characteristics and mannerisms of the everyday bar patrons. As an adult, his service in the United States Navy and employment as an international salesman took him to many countries around the world, exposing him to different personalities and cultures. These experiences combined with the vivid imagination he was born with, is what inspires him to write novels of intrigue and suspense, with a touch of humor thrown in along the way. Robert currently resides with his wife and cat in a small town located in the Ozark Mountain region of the Midwest.

I read this novel with my Shelfari horror group. I don't think anyone enjoyed it very much.
The story itself had promise. An artifact is discovered on a beach and quietly tucked away for further inspection. Of course, the artifact is dangerous and seems to bring bad luck to anyone that has possession of it. Sounds good, but a little familiar, right?
The telling of the story is where this book failed in my opinion. That's exactly it-the author tells, he doesn't show. And he tells us a lot. Over and over again. At one point in the story the author relates to us AGAIN, that a certain character is totally unaware of the experiences of another character. Enough already! Trust your reader to have some brains and to have realized that fact the first or second time you mentioned it.
It almost felt like someone was sitting there narrating the whole story. No feelings for the characters came across and no urgency regarding the plot was felt. Then the end came along, WHABAM out of nowhere. It felt rushed and to me, it also felt like I was being preached to, which I did not enjoy. (It wasn't in a religious way, but it did feel a bit like a sermon.)
I stuck with this until the end because I had hoped that somehow the story would redeem itself, but I'm sad to say that it never did. Even though I liked the idea of the story, the author didn't deliver it in such a way as to make me care for the characters, or what happened to them. I'm sorry that I can't recommend this novel.
This book made me think and engendered emotions of fear as most of the story seems to be or could be plausible. Who really knows what our....oh. you'll just have to read the book to find out who does what.
I read other reviews and there is a lot of detail that can get a little tedious but, the different pieces had to be explained enough to put everything together. While some of the story bogged down for the most part, I found the story interesting.
I would happily recommend this book to adults as it could be a little harsh for kids.
KUDOS to you Mr. Roberts on a story well told
There were also some grammar and syntax errors that could have been caught by a good editor. However, it was definitely a good first effort and I'd be interested in reading further books by Robert Roberts.
