Yes, the author is related. This is the first book by Tim, my son. Not being prejudice but I really enjoyed this book.
Here is the story:
Is Death the end or is it the beginning of the next great adventure? That question has plagued people since the beginning of time. Join the Adamson sisters as they pick up the mantle of Charlie Adamson's Quest to find the mystical doorway to the afterlife. They will have to travel across America searching for clues, solving puzzles, and facing mystical creatures all in their search for the keys required to complete Charlie's Quest. The only question you have to ask is, Are you willing to take the journey with them?
