More About The Pickthorn Chronicles by Gary Lemon
Pickthorn has selected some great stories as a sequel to his first book, "Short Stories By Pickthorn." "The Pickthorn Chronicles" brings us new accounts of horrific, blood chilling adventures as well as heart warming stories that may bring forth a tear or two. Suspense, mystery, humor, and intrigue are a few adjectives that describe the highly entertaining narratives that we have come to expect from Alfred J. Pickthorn. 'Horror In Alaska' describes the terrible ordeal three people face after their plane crashes in the Alaskan wilderness. The fight for survival takes an evil twist as the wife of the injured pilot and her lover, the pilot's junior partner, decide to leave the injured man at the crash site, believing that he would soon die from his injuries and the freezing temperature. The conniving lovers manage to reach freedom and safety and they then divert the rescue mission, to a different location, far from the actual crash site. Confident, their dastardly plot would never be discovered, the villainous pair would now take over a thriving business and live a life of luxury, or so they thought. From the 'Horror In Alaska' the author treats the reader to another murder mystery with the grisly murder of two prominent citizens, who are the parents of a young man who has a burning ambition to succeed in life but prefers to inherit his wealth rather than to work for it; he engages a mentally impaired girl to help him reach that goal. The young girl is known as 'Dumb Dora.' If you prefer a nostalgic, warm and neighborly story, then you should enjoy the adventure of a young lad, who risks the displeasure of an old man and his bulldog, by stealing plums from the tree in the man's backyard. The 'old geezer' protects his plums and his property by shooting trespassers with his BB gun and then lets Spike (his bulldog) chase the intruder away. The confrontation between the father of the young boy, who had been shot with a BB, and the old man, was one of the highlights of this story titled "Old Spike." A pulsating, heart wrenching, drama is offered in the suspenseful story of a young twelve year old who is heir to a sizable fortune. He has been kidnapped by a pair of clever and diabolical characters who are intent on executing the boy after the ransom has been paid. A shocking and unexpected ending to this story called, "Kidnapped." In my opinion, each of these stories could be and should be made into a feature length film, they are that riveting and entertaining. Now sit back, relax and enjoy, "The Pickthorn Chronicles."
