I love how Aaron Paul Lazar has drawn the characters in his book. He sketches the relationship of man and wife in soft strokes, like a lovely pen and ink drawing on fine paper. A grandparent taking delight in the love of his grandchildren is a pastel portrait framed in gold. Childhood friendships drenched in sepia tones are like old photographs in a long forgotten album taken from the shelf. I also like the pace of the book. Nothing is rushed. There is no leap headlong into a maze of frantic action nor is there a plunge into needless back-story. There is a gracious and soft unfolding of detail, layer upon layer, as if one were looking at a painting of a lush landscape. Characters reveal themselves and the story unfolds easily, effortlessly. Sam Moore is a methodical man, used to figuring out mysteries in life by using tried and true principles. He has honed his solid intellect during many years as a physician and isn't prone to imagining things. But when Sam discovers a marble in the soft friable earth of his garden, he begins to think he may be going crazy. The glowing cat's eye marble seems to flash scenes of his boyhood before his eyes, scenes with his younger brother Billy, who had been so dear, the brother whose disappearance had left behind an unsolved mystery and a hole in Sam Moore's heart. Was his brother speaking to him from across the void? As we look over Sam Moore's shoulder into the fire of the green marble, we are drawn with him into an experience of the paranormal, seeing into the unseen worlds he unearths, never to rest until we know the whole truth about what happened to his brother Billy- and to the others. The sense of intrigue never dims in this book. I love a good story and this is one of the best I have read in a very long time.

The story starts off slowly but rich in detail as Sam Moore, a recently retired doctor, deals with making plans for his long summer days of freedom. He is obsessed with clearing his acres of land to make a garden for numerous crops and flowers, and also being a devoted husband to his wife with MS, a good father, and a fun grandfather to his extended family. The story has a mystery concerning the death of his brother Billy when they were just pre-teen boys, but it builds up slowly and then comes to an exciting end with closure about the brother's death. There's no abrupt cliffhanger in this book despite being first in a series, so it can be treated as a stand-alone also.

Sam's discovery of a glass green marble that was dropped so long ago by Billy gives him the temporary ability to travel back to the time of his childhood. It's fun to read about the more innocent lives of young boys in the late 50's/early 60's, and follow Sam and Billy's adventures with their friends: the nerd, the girl, the wealthy one, the annoying kid. I was a child then, though younger than Sam Moore is purported to be, and some of the details brought back memories of a slice of Americana--backyard bbqs with fellow townspeople, 4th of July parades, grandparents who were involved in their grandkids' lives, sleepovers in a tent on the lawn--the list goes on. This is not a story for fans of intense thrillers, graphic murders, or detective car chases. It can be called either a quiet, low-key story with a mystery and a touch of time-travel, or a country mystery, or a serious cozy. Whatever you want to call it, it is the right book if you are in the mood for a clean, family-oriented story with a touch of the unknown. Recommended for fans of family reads and cozies, leaning more toward gentle character studies than dead bodies and blood.

Sam just retired, and now has plenty of time for gardening, helping his wife, watching the grandchildren, and remembering the disappearance of his kid brother 50 years ago. Unearthing a skeleton in his garden seems like a possible answer to all his questions, but then the FBI finds a war medal in the burial site and the death of this child (not his kid brother) is added to a long list of murders. With the serial killer fixated on Sam, and a old marble that keeps taking him into the past, Sam must unravel what happened to his kid brother and take down the serial killer before he, his friends and family suffer the next loss.

The writing was solid, but the story kind of meanders through a lot of information that doesn't seem entirely relevant to the plot. There's lots of gardening, flashbacks to boyhood, and though the setup for the surprise ending leaves a lot of room for guessing, there's a bit of lost tension because of the meandering. Although it didn't add a whole lot to the story, I did enjoy the supernatural marble element. Overall, it was a nice read, so four stars.

Sam has been missing his little brother for most of his life, and he still does not know if his brother is dead or "only" lost... He suffers and yet hopes...

There is someone else whose presence is disturbingly real and who wants nothing more than to cause pain - pain as horrible as his own suffering. And Sam needs to find him, and stop him, before it is too late.

Through all the heartache and sadness, Sam is kept sane by the love of his family - each and every one of them - and by loving them all.

This love is where it all starts for Aaron Paul Lazar. Everything is built on it, and in the end, it is all that counts.
