The Key Series
Book II of the trilogy “In Search of the Key of David: The symbol of Wisdom” finds Trey Spirit Walker and his the team returning to the Underworld. War is brewing and they must find and return the missing Key to prevent it. They will need the final two elusive symbols—Wisdom and Power—to help them locate the Key.
While waiting for flood waters of the Underworld to recede, Bones tells the team the Ark of the Covenant and the missing treasures of King David and King Solomon are hidden in the Forgotten City of the Light’s Temple of Yahweh—the same temple they must visit to return the Key, once it is found.
As they make the final plans to go under, they learn a kidnapped child is being held deep in the Underworld by the Lizard People. Not knowing that the child’s kidnapping holds the clue to the missing Key, they all agree that the child’s safety must take priority over their quest. Once under, they are befriended by the paranormal being, Little Lizard, who has knowledge of both the Key and the missing child.
Things are never as they seem in the Underworld which is filled with both paranormal and supernatural beings. Evil, still unable to locate the Key after 2000 years, lets the team enter his domain unhindered this time. He believes they can lead him to the Key. In their quest to find the missing child, and the missing Key, the team battles both human and paranormal forces. Before they finish their quest, they experience the supernatural hidden power of the mysterious symbol. The supernatural power is needed as they confront a huge whirlpool, a pack of giant gray wolves, deadly Myia fish, the Lava Beast, and a prehistoric giant arachnid with its sight set on BJ as its prey.
In The Symbol of Power, the third and final book of the “In search of the Key of David” trilogy, Evil has returned to claim his revenge. BJ is in his sights and he has plans for her… a slow and painful death.
Much has happened since their last journey into the Underworld.
Guy is intent on gathering the proof that it was his father, GB, that murdered both his mother and grandfather to gain control of the Carter Foundation. GB has no idea that both the wills of his wife and his father have been changed, removing him completely. Or, that Garland has withdrawn his financial support from the Carter Foundation and formed the new Guy Carter Foundation.
Chinco warns Trey that BJ needs to perfect her telepathy, and other mental powers because she was going to be facing a supernatural battle requiring mental, not physical strength. And, she was going to have to face it on her own.
While on vacation, the twins receive a double portion of the power of the symbols. Each receives both Trey and BJ’s symbols branded on their hands.
Trey, BJ, and the twins encounter and befriend Sun Dancer, a miniature Native American Spirit from the tribe of the Little People. He joins their team when BJ is kidnapped and taken into the Underworld by GB. Her rescue goes smoothly. Only, GB escapes and kidnaps BJ a second time. He has her injected with an experimental drug never used on humans and it has no known antidote. It causes her to develop retrograde amnesia and aggressive behavior with any loud noise.
When Tray and Sun Dancer go into the Underworld, they encounter multiple boobytrapped caverns holding hostages, including the twins. They have to dismantle the explosives and release the hostages before they can go after BJ.
Trey decides the only safe way out of the caverns with BJ and the four kidnappers, is by the river. Once on the river, BJ, Sun Dancer, and the twins rescue a family of six after a boating accident. Their raft is greatly overloaded and they are fighting the current heading toward the Great Underground Falls.
The river supernaturally reverses direction and they are met by the rest of their team that has been downstream waiting to help with the prisoners.
Before they can make it safely out of the caverns, they encounter heavy paranormal opposition. First, the four kidnappers vanish and then BJ disappears.
Trey believes BJ is in one of the thousands of giant arachnid nests. With no way to find and free her before the eggs hatch and the feeding frenzy begins, Sun Dancer sends for help.
Queen P of the Hidden Ones and her two royal guards soon arrive. Trey had heard whispers of a third Underworld tribe called the Hidden Ones but had never seen them. They were magnificent warriors as dark as the shadows from which they emerged. Their only flaw was their eyes, they had none. Their eyelids were permanently sealed.
Would they be able to locate BJ alive and before she became the first meal of the newly hatched spiders?
And, where was the Ark of the Covenant?

During a major ice storm, a body is found frozen in a car filled with water, only the car was never submerged in water. They have no idea who the victim is, the tips of his fingers were surgically removed. They have no idea when he was murdered because he was frozen solid. The car was stolen two years earlier and had a more recent but stollen license plate. When the body was thawed out they were able to do an autopsy. They knew what he had to eat right before he drowned in city water and was frozen stiff. That was all they had to go on until they found one fingerprint on the back of the stolen license plate and the results of the postmortem the detective jokingly requested on the victim’s last meal.
The past inhabitants of Gulfside Island were selfish and distrustful. Because they refused to help an injured woman that washed up on their shore after a bad storm she placed a curse on them. No soul would ever leave the island. At death, they would be chained to the island for eternity. However, because there were three pure hearts that came to her aid, the descendants of those three bloodlines, working together, would be given a chance to find a way to break the curse before it became eternal.

Unfortunately, the three families had not gotten along for at least five of the last eight generations.
