Crisis at Paradise Eye-Land

5-Star Review:

This story will take you on a journey with a lusty protagonist that involves an unexpected combination: seedy strip joints and the paranormal. Lynden Rykker runs an adult strip club, Paradise Eye-Land in California and, after five years, she yearns for a new challenge in her life. But strange, unexplained things are happening in the club, and the apparent aim seems to be eliminating the club altogether. Elsewhere, we learn about an interior designer, Jenny, who is about to experience the full force of an entity called Mike Lee, as he savagely takes over her mind and body. What happens to Jenny and those she meets will have deadly results. Can anyone help her regain control of her body from the evil and vengeful Lee?


If you enjoy a story that has twists, turns, and surprises throughout, Crisis at Paradise Eye-Land is a perfect book for you. The writer has woven amazing detail into his characters and story lines. Each character is well constructed and their dialogue is perfect. Wayne Edmiston has built scenes that are so realistic they touch every one of your senses. A superb story from start to finish.


I loved the part of the story when Jenny was trying to reclaim her physical body from Lee; the tension was terrific. The ending—in fact, the entire story—was not what I expected. Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen, the author took me in another direction. A perfect and unique story, and excellently executed!

A subliminally engineered deliberate sabotage creates chaos at an adults’ only nightclub – where sexual fanaticizes flourished.

30 something Lynden Rykker is a Native American of the Konkow Tribe and the manager of an adult entertainment center located on the outskirts of a  northern California community, Chi City. Paradise Eye-Land has been under her direction for five years; it is time for a new twist and stepping stone to higher aspirations, else she spends most of her life embroiled in a shadowy existence. Her stellar idea:  an Erotic Literary Night in the Library’s  Adventure Book Club.

She doesn’t know the normal sound system’s subliminal messaging has been altered. Unseen malevolent forces bent on destruction and desecration of Paradise Eye-land do exactly that.

Lynden’s best friend and the property’s Security Enforcer, Wil Goings, is forced to show his secretly long-held hand and love/lust for her. Backstory: they first became friends during a college rally where Jenny was head cheerleader and Wil of the campus police.

Fate, disguised as an angry disentitled discarnate entity, Mike Lee, takes physical possession of professional interior designer, Jennifer Cummins’ sexy body, changing her life and several others forever- like dominoes falling including the deaths of more than five patrons this night.  Jenny’s very painful ejection unknowingly finds life does not end like she had thought.

While in her soul’s astral body-essence Jenny meets her dead brother, SSgt. Théodore, (Teddy) Cummins – a casualty of the Vietnam conflict – just one of 58,547. She finds out the full true story of how her brother died, and every member of his Marine squad, while in the service of an unpopular war.

Wrongdoings are corrected and Teddy, now a spiritual counselor helps a multitude of militarily mentality on a pathway to aid humanity. Teddy and his GAWD SQUAD help Jenny regain physical custody of her physicalness, with the help of Mike Lee’s mother. Mother Lee intervenes by literally jerking her son’s paltry soul out from Jenny and away from further degradation.

While still in her spiritual form Jenny meets the Master Teacher who counsels her.

Anna Johannsson, an adult toy manufacturer/ distributor, gets more than she ever asks for, emotionally, sexually, physically, and psychologically. She lends aid to who she thinks is Jenny. They leave in an enhanced Mercedes-Benz to Anna’s estate in the nearby hills of Forest Ranch and experience a life-changing horrifying ordeal only to eventually become life-mates.

Jenny returns to her apartment where she meets Khepri and Ra; Ra integrates into her for guidance and protection.

Lynden meets with Eye-Land board of Directors to determine a better outcome with Paradise Eye-Land; subsequently,  it is razed and, in its place, like the Phoenix becomes an island paradise, a mall like atmosphere, filled with metaphysical stores and pyramid shaped buildings.

A sexy thriller with out-of-this-world experiences, enhance everyone’s viewability to make changes necessary for an eternal peaceful existence.

And to top things off a short story to explain how three savants come to occupy an integral place with big-hearted, Al and his triple ‘A’ Automotive Repair and Service.
