A dark shadow has fallen upon the pristine, unspoiled gem of the Outer Banks--Ocracoke Island. Developers and investors long to get their greedy hands on its protected shores. On a moonlit September night, six people have gathered at Springer's Point to seek out the ghosts of Ocracoke. Do the spirits care what happens to the island? A strange, glowing eagle appears and scatters the ghost hunters into the woods. One of them will not emerge alive.

In his fourth book from the bestselling Outer Banks Murder Series, author Joe C. Ellis offers his readers another intriguing mystery. Oil and gas fracking companies have invaded once-sacred Native American lands in Pennsylvania and Ohio. Reports of a Thunderbird, a large legendary eagle, menacing the skies in these environmentally threatened areas frighten local residents. Something terrible always happens whenever the bird appears--accidents, murders, and even earthquakes. When the Thunderbird's appearance on Ocracoke Island coincides with a murder, the Secret Service, FBI, and local law enforcement join forces to investigate.

Special Agent Russell Goodwin calls upon Sheriff Dugan Walton, Deputy Marla Easton, and reporter, Mee Mee Roberts to assist in putting the pieces of this strange puzzle together. In the process they engage with a cast of unusual characters--a British diplomat and his stunning wife, a shaman from a local Native American tribe, two paranormal investigators, and a world renowned medium. To protect the sacred, someone has committed the profane--coldblooded murder.

The Old Man and the Marathon is a story about taking on a challenge despite the odds. Sixty-four year old Angelo Santiago has been a distance runner most of his life. However, he has never run a marathon because of a history of sciatica problems. This missing piece in his competitive career has always gnawed at him, reminding him of his inferiority among his running peers. After three months of pain-free running, he decides to train for his first marathon. With encouragement from his young friend, Emmanuel, he begins the arduous workouts that will prepare him for one of the most difficult ordeals of his life. Along the way he meets Rita Marling, a beautiful woman who stirs romantic embers dormant since the death of his wife ten years ago. He also encounters Jack Silvers, a local high school coach and marathoner who becomes his rival in racing and romance. On the day of the race, like everyone who takes on the challenge of a marathon, Angelo must reach deep inside to find the strength and courage to finish the race.
