SECRET MONITOR MEN: A Mystery Thriller

To know stories, you must read a lot of fiction and watch plenty of movies.  Your analytical and research skills must be razor sharp, supported by forced essays in the academic world.  But most important, you must have a passion for tales of mystery & intrigue.  You need to captivate the reader's imagination.

Six friends make the ill-advised decision to pay their respects at a local cemetery well past normal visiting hours. Driven by curiosity, and led by their pal, Ray, stubborn in the belief he is right, the men drift deeper into the abyss of the summer solstice night. Eavesdropping on the dead charges a special toll even for the well-intentioned freemason. As lightning flashes in the distant sky, a premonition overcomes some that the night has its own designs. Gravestones mark their progress to the square & compass, but should they have let sleeping dogs lie?
