Another spine tingling Supernatural Thriller from the extraordinary mind of author Tony Arthur
Mr. Tony Arthur is an American author. His latest release, Nos Theista, is his third novel. It delivers the same spine tingling chills, not to mention scares, readers
have already experienced with his debut novel, the epic thriller, The Chosen. The author then followed it up with the release of The Custodian, a story so terrifying that the author, himself, was spooked at times as he wrote it.
Mr. Arthur is a veteran of the US Navy who resides in West Valley of Phoenix Arizona.
An excerpt from Nos Theista
The Chief Inspector turned his attention to the blood splattered Emma.
“And now you, Madame Gibb. Please, tell me everything you recall of the
incident.” Glynne cleared his throat. “Is it necessary to question her?
Look, you have my statement and Ekaterina’s. Max at the club witnessed
the entire thing. I think my wife has been through enough for the
evening.” Glynne interjected. “I understand your concern, but your wife
is the one who, uh, committed the act. It is therefore essential that we
have her statement explaining her side,” Schmidt said. “With respect,
Inspector, you need to understand that Emma is not accustom to such
indignities. You must also appreciate the fact that she is the ruler of
worlds, and she is more powerful than any Earth monarch, past or
present,” Glynne explained. “While I have no doubt those things are true
you must also understand that this is Earth, and we are in Switzerland.
There are laws here that must be followed by all,” he replied.
Emma turned her eyes on the inspector. “I will tell you something
about me so that you understand just how thin the ice on which you are
skating, Inspector. I am Lord Emma Gibb, unchallenged lord of two
worlds. On any one of them, only through my designate could you speak to
me. That is if I permitted you in my presence. It would be folly for you
to assume that what I am, and who I am changes with geography. It
doesn’t! Where I stand I am lord of all, always! Whether it be on
Behgock, Grazetia, or Earth, it does not matter to me. Wherever my
person happens to be I am ruler, my word is the rule, and I am the maker
of rules. I, alone, occupy the seat at the top of the food chain. That I
am here on Earth cannot alter the reality of me. I say this with
deference to Poitr who has been a gracious host and who I consider my
friend. He, his government, his country, nor his countrymen have a thing
to fear from me. But understand this, Chief Inspector, if I so choose
all Switzerland would be mine before the end of this night, by the end
of tomorrow’s day all of Europe. Do not provoke me further! Here is my
statement to you. My husband and I were disparaged, and I, Lord Emma
Gibb rectified it.”
The silence that followed was tremendous. No other words were spoken
by anyone for fully five minutes. The Swiss President got to his feet.
“Chief Inspector, I think you have all that you need for your
investigation. Thank you so much for coming on such short notice. It
will be remembered. Good night, sir,” Poitr said. “Glad I could help,
Poitr. I will keep you informed on the result of the investigation,”
Schmidt replied. “Splendid, that would be satisfactory,” Poitr said,
walking him to the door.
Ekaterina watched Emma with cross currents of awe and love. “Come
with me, Emma. Let’s get that blood off you,” she said. Emma left with
her and they went upstairs. Poitr came back in the room and looked at
Glynne. Then he went back out of the room and returned with a bottle of
wine and two glasses. He poured a generous amount in each and the two
men drank in silence for a while.
“I am glad to have her as a friend. I would not want her as my
enemy,” Poitr said. Glynne took a drink saying nothing. “She will make
them pay for what they did to you. It is why she is here, isn’t it?”
Poitr opined. Glynne looked at his glass and took another sip. “Yes,” he
said simply. “Why did she choose Switzerland as her point of entry? Just
out of curiosity,” Poitr asked.
Glynne smiled. It was a sad sort of smile. “It was actually my idea.
It had been a long journey. I felt we did not need a confrontation on
the way in. And I wanted Emma to rest a little, to relax and enjoy a
little of Earth before she takes up the task that brought her. So, I
suggested Switzerland,” he said. “There is something very special
between you. Cherish it, my friend.”
