The Turn of the Karmic Wheel – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat
‘Harry had owned his shop for many years, seen some come in and go out in a
sea of police gunfire, but, hell, he couldn’t worry about every customer
who purchased a weapon. Fact was, he had given up trying to figure out
man‘s nature years ago. Course, Euclid wasn’t one to carry arms of any
sort. He didn’t remember him ever going hunting or even showing
interest in the sport. Perhaps now that he was alone in life, with much
time on his hands, he had decided to take it up and save some money by
providing his own meat for the table. In any event, Harry knew Euclid
to be a solid citizens of Raleigh, a man with a pure heart. Yes, he was
a good man and a great friend.
Harry went to the window and watched his friend walk down the street. He
wondered if he should be concerned. For some reason, he felt a bit of
uneasiness; just couldn’t put his finger on the why or wherefore. Aw,
hell, he reasoned, it ain’t none of my business. Yet there was
something eating at his mind, a voice telling him to go no further with
this transaction. It was a gut feeling he couldn’t shake, a feeling
that his friend and neighbor of over 30 years was not ‘quite right’.
There was definitely something ‘off the scale’ about Euclid today. A
vivid image entered his mind. A vision so unfathomable he had to let it
go. Harry shivered as he moved to slowly close the store’s door,
continuing to watch the retreating figure kicking stones along the road,
unable to shake his feeling of dread.’
Euclid is one of the most easy going people around but he just hasn’t been
himself since his wife died and he was laid off from the car plant.
Even so, it just isn’t like him to buy a hunting rifle. Especially one
as powerful as a 243 Winchester Super Shot Magnum. And his request
that Harry speed up the paperwork is even more out of character.
Problem was, Euclid had started hearing voices and music in his head.
Karman Shelton is a nurse at the Out Patient Psychiatric Clinic. Karman has
spent her life helping others both through her work at the clinic as
well as volunteering for just about any cause that needed her help. She
too has started hearing music and voices.
Angela Frank will soon find out that she has something in common with both
Euclid and Karman. The only difference is that she has been hearing the
music and voices for years and their meaning is finally coming together
to make sense. The voices have told Angela that she will soon be on a
mission and Euclid and Karman are the missing pieces that are needed to
complete this mission.
In The Turn of the Karmic Wheel, Author Monica Brinkman takes you through
the minds of those that are good as well as those that are bad as they
are given a choice to change their ways and join the forces that can and
will make life better for themselves and others around them. Some will
chose to take life into the right direction and some will not. It’s
interesting to see which characters live by greed and which don’t. The
Turn of the Karmic Wheel was an enjoyable read from beginning to end.
