Grey Daze 2Title: Grey Daze (A Lance Underphal Mystery)
Author: Michael Allan Scott
Publisher: Independent
Pages: 306
Genre: Mystery/Thriller/Suspense/Supernatural/Paranormal
Format: Paperback/Kindle

GREY DAZE descends.  A fresh murder spins out of control, twisting into new realms of paranormal mystery.

Not for the faint of heart, the third in the Lance Underphal Mystery series, is an interplay of corrupt characters immersed in today’s world. Paranormal twists and fast action in movie-like scenes set the story’s mystery/thriller elements apart from the typical whodunit/serial-killer thriller.

Guided by his dead wife, a reluctant psychic finds himself on a wild ride through a criminal underworld, slamming face first into corrupt police, gunrunning bikers, and a drug addicted killer–not to mention confrontations with the dead.

Layers of plots within plots twist this new thriller into a startling climax.


My Review

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

Grey Daze is a murder mystery with a touch of the supernatural. Lance Underphal isn’t your usual protagonist. He’s 60ish, not in the best of health, and he is an unwilling psychic. He has visions and he also talks to his dead wife on a regular basis who, ironically, helps to keep him sane. His lady friend, Callie, seems to have a touch of the gift as well.

I like murder mysteries and this ended up being a good one, but it took me about a third of the book to get into it. It was a pretty straight forward mystery with a couple twists at the end, one of which I’d figured out. There was also one thing that wasn’t resolved, which bothered me a little. As a side story, Lance was brought up on criminal charges which, for the most part, was pretty stressful but I found the trial very interesting.
