People and animals are going blind without a cause: hospitals are fast filling up with patients suffering unexplained cases of sudden blindness. Answers are hard to come by and authorities are at a loss for what to do. As panic sweeps over the city of Ocala Florida, doctors rush to find a cure for the unexplained incidences. A doctor in the ER loses his sight in the cause of caring for the blind patients but when Dr. David Belmont's 17-year-old son Wade also turns up blind finding a cure becomes more than an option. For David and his beautiful wife Sarah - who is also a high school science teacher - it will mean journeying to the least expected of places to discover the source of the blindness epidemic. Much more than anything else, David will require a nerve of steel to cope with the presence of Dr. Russell Paton, Sarah's former lover from university and leader of the experts' team dispatched to Ocala to assist with finding a cure. Greg Didaleusky has crafted a fast paced novel in Sudden Blindness leading along a dark tunnel of medical mystery with barely a flicker in sight ...more than likely to keep readers reaching for the caffeine all night. This nicely written story deservedly earns my four stars. Reviewed by Francis Benedict author of To Cure! a thriller.

What's happening in a town in Florida? People and animals are going blind...for no discernible reason. Is it a virus, bacteria, some kind of terrorist attack?

David and Sarah, a married couple, are main players on the team racing to deal with the disaster. Not least because their son is one of those affected. Enter Russell Patton from Atlanta.

David and Sarah, a married couple, are main players on the team racing to deal with the disaster. Not least because their son is one of those affected. Enter Russell Patton from Atlanta, an expert recruited to help head up the team. This adds to the tension as a long-ago romantic relationship between him and Sarah now surfaces to cause unneeded dissension.
It's fascinating to follow the clues as the team pulls out all the stops, enlisting even the Navy Seals, to finally solve this terrifying problem.

​Sudden Blindness caught my interest from the first page of this mystery/suspense novel. The plot of people going blind without any apparent medical cause collided with secrets between the head of CDC investigative team and the wife of an ER doctor. I had a hard time putting down the book waiting to see what the next chapter brought. I can't wait for the authors next novel.

Strange Appearance kept me interested, wanting to know what would happen next, from the first paragraph to the surprise ending. This mystery/suspense novel keeps you on the edge of your seat, not wanting to put the book down until the final scene and chapter.




Francis Benedict rated Strange Appearance about 10 hours agoFive Stars

Two strange, and decomposing bodies have been discovered in different locations within Ocala National Park. Cause of death is unknown but suspicion hints at a connection involving the occult. Robert Jenson, a part-time park ranger and Cynthia Davidson, a pathologist assistant must join forces if they hope to solve the mystery. The duo will journey to dangerous places, including the lair of a devil worshiping group. But will their zeal lead to an answer... Or to their own very demise?

With a believable setting and characterization, Strange Appearance is a cleverly written medical thriller that's bound to deliver on its promise. It's a typical thriller laced with plenty of action and mystery designed to keep the reader engaged from beginning to end. This is the second novel I'll be reading from this author, and on every occasion, as I've found, there's always something to take home with. Brace yourself, rough and exciting ride lies ahead.

Stevi B. for Manic Readers says: Frozen Death
Rating:
Four Star


"Frozen Death is a very intriguing mystery and it gets even more interesting as the answer appears to be found in Ancient Indian lore. If you love Indian lore, medically impossible puzzles, and mysteries that look impossible, you will like Frozen Death.

Excellent paper back. Keeps you wanting to read faster and not put the book down. Hope more stories coming out from G.L. Didaleusky. 



THE STRANGE HORIZON
















By Greg D. Gildersleeveon July 15, 2017

​ 4.0 out of 5 starsThe Horizons of a dreamer
Format: Kindle Edition
The Strange Horizon is billed a “collage” of short stories, and like a collage of pictures, it evokes many different images and moods in its 23 offerings, some of which are only a few paragraphs long while others span 4000 words. The stories run a gamut of genres--mystery, suspense, horror, science fiction, fantasy--but contain no "profanity, gore, or sexual innuendo," as Didaleusky tells us in the introduction. This ties in nicely with a running theme of the book: If you do the right thing, you may be rewarded in unexpected ways.

Although I enjoyed the stories, I was left wondering about some of their unexplored possibilities. When two spoiled children bring home a boy they just met from a homeless shelter in "A Christmas Visitor," I admired their willingness to help the boy out but questioned the unexamined dangers they took. Such stories may give child readers the false impression that if you do the right thing, it will always turn out well for you in the end. Anyone over the age of, say, 12, knows this is not the case. However, the stories do have considerable merit for young readers. They could be used by parents to foster dialogue: “Did Ashley and Aaron do the right thing by bringing Jacob home? What were some of the risks they took? What would you do in their situation?” The stories can also lead to an exploration of what exactly the right thing is to do in certain situations, and how hard it can be to do the right thing.

Didaleusky’s protagonists are not always children or even human. In one story, a ladybug named Lily helps a boy who is sad because his friend moved away.

In the introduction, the author tells us the reactions he expects: “You may smile, chuckle, express a tear or two, feel a sudden chill, or feel a warmth at the end of the story. Emotions are in the mind of the reader and the heart cuddles or rejects those emotions.” Like a new puppy, the stories in The Strange Horizon are meant to be cuddled.

The Strange Horizon, by G. L. Didaleusky, is a collection of short stories with often inexplicable paranormal happenings. Some stories are creepy, while many are inspirational and uplifting. Many stories have a positive take and hope for humanity. Each story uniquely wraps up its theme for the reader to have a sense of resolution. Many stories surprise the reader with twists and turns and endings they might not have expected.

I found these stories the perfect read for those who need a "quick story fix" on their way to work while commuting via public transportation, or for those who want a collection of short crisp stories in a busy world. One gets a neatly wrapped up beginning, middle and end in a few pages while having a motivational or uplifting resolution. Short stories, in the vein as Hemingway, are a lost or rejected art.
