Snippets-to-Spin-Offs: The Murder Rule, and More (Part Seven)—Reaching the Climax

In these final snippets from Part One of The Murder Rule I will post ‘the pre-climax’ so to speak, not revealing the name of the killer of rocker Denny Spradlin in early February, 1996. But this killer did know the man Denholm spoke with in the second snippet, a former rap superstar and record mogul himself, now living in fear for his life should he expose the true killer of Spradlin, among other reasons, such as betraying his oath to ‘the Order’ that Spradlin also betrayed and who suffered murder over it.

Denholm knew that this rap star named ‘Drakk’ was also in hiding, but did not know where. But he figured Drakk’s lawyer in the record label lawsuit that Drakk had lost, because the other side had threatened and bribed the judge to make sure Drakk’s side lost, would know where Drakk was. The lawyer’s name was Wilmont. Denholm made an appointment with Wilmont to find out where Drakk was.

The first snippet is below, and both snippets are copyright © 2022 Deborah Lagarde. The time frame is June, 2005.

 

On the hunt for Drakk, 2005

 

 

“I really do not think making this appointment with me, Mr. Denholm, will solve your problem of finding Drakk, as I cannot reveal to you where he is.”

So said Avery Wilmont, Solicitor, who was now retired and basically living off the largesse paid to him by Drakk, who, while losing his label and well over a billion pounds, was still wealthy enough to keep paying off this secret partner whom had vowed to not reveal where Drakk lived.

“Is Drakk still in danger for his life over the lawsuit?”

Wilmont lit a cigarette and sat at his desk in his home-office. “Not over the lawsuit. Over the fact that he knows who killed a number of former Order of Andelusia members who quit the ‘club’ so to speak. Dead men tell no tales, as the saying goes.”

I just happened to bring with me Denny’s copy of The Pleasure Rule manual which Kempullah had given to me to aid in my quest to find Denny’s killer.

“Yes, it’s in this book.” I showed Wilmont the manual.

“Yes, it is. Drakk told me all about it.”

I then told him what Blake had told me about his suspicion that Drakk as well as Fozz had a part in the murder of Denny Spradlin.

“But neither one really did have a part in it, Mr. Denholm.”

“Call me Lloyd.”

“Fine. Lloyd, while Fozz and Drakk may have been called to take part in Spradlin’s and other killings for breaking the rules so to speak, neither one actually took part. You will have to ask Drakk why—”

“Why? When you can’t even tell me where he is so that I can talk with him?”

Wilmont’s face went flush with the truth of it, which led to some verbal judo on my part.

“Because, Mr. Wilmont, when I am interviewing anybody, I need to see their face, facial expressions, their body language, which reveals to me their truth or their half-truths or their lies. Body language, Mr. Wilmont, body language. Anyone can say anything, true or false. But it is their body language that lets me know whether or not the person I am interviewing is being truthful or not. I cannot see their body language over the phone. Nor can I see their body language through e-mail or cell phone texting. The interview must happen face-to-face. That means I must meet with him. In secret. Maybe if you rang him up—he does have a phone, right?”

“So you want me to ring him and ask him if you can meet him face-to-face?”

“Yes. And hopefully, he agrees to meet me, in secret. Alone, at his house or wherever.”

And so it was to be. On a tiny island off the coast of Scotland, where he rented a cottage from the lord of the island under his real name seldom revealed in any pop culture magazine or other media, that being Percy Whitewell.

In the second snippet, Denholm meets with Drakk, two weeks later.

“You won’t reveal my real name, will you?”

So said Percy ‘Drakk’ Whitewell after greeting me at his door. He wore blue jeans, a white t-shirt, slippers, and held a pistol in his right hand.

“I will not reveal your real name.”

As I entered through the door I whispered, “You can put that gun away now.”

Drakk stuck it in a drawer near a couch made of leather, then sat down, as I sat in a similar chair.

“So you had nothing to do with Denny Spradlin’s death, which was not a suicide.”

“I didn’t do it. And Fozz didn’t either.” He lit a cigarette, then held it out to me. “Smoke?”

“No thanks, but a glass of water would help.”

“Sorry, man.” He got up and brought me a bottle.

“Thanks,” I said, then continued. “So, do you know who did kill Denny?”

Heavy breathing. “Yes.” He then nodded with apprehension written all over his face.

“Is the killer still alive?” Sip.

“Yes. Which is why I’m in hiding and only Wilmont—and now you—know where I am.”

“I will not reveal your place of residence, believe me. And I will also not reveal that it was Wilmont who set up the interview. He is retired, so I doubt anyone still thinks he has anything to do with you.” Another sip.

Drakk then sat back a bit more relaxed. “This killer is very powerful now in the music biz. He’s on the Directorate. He’s at the top of the Novordo Club—”

“Mark Besst?”

“Supposedly Mark Besst died or something last year. I mean the man he recruited—”

I cut Drakk short. “So let me go through my head then as to who did not have anything to do with it, or who has died since the death. Just give me a minute, eh?”

 

So it could have been Swami Negran, but he got car-crashed, supposedly. And Kumara, but he got bombed, supposedly. Cole Blessing? Likely not—he was in the US at the time, and he got impaled… I doubt if Torquay and his Luciferian minions had anything to do with it, and most of them died mysteriously anyway. Drakk said not Mark Besst, either, who supposedly died. So it must be someone among the new set of Novordos.

(Note: Then the name of the ‘someone among the new set of Novordos’ popped into Lloyd Denholm’s head. Sorry, no spoiler alerts!)

“Okay, Drakk, I’m finished considering who could have been involved but has passed on, as well as whom likely would not have had a part in Denny’s murder.” Sip of water. “You said Mark Besst recruited someone into the Novordo Club and is on the Directorate as well. By that I reckon you mean the Directorate that rules the music industry.”

“Yes.”

“You also said this killer is powerful in the music biz, which is likely why he’s on their Directorate. And you do know this person.”

“Yes.”

“So that,” another sip, “you know this person, and you know he is powerful in the industry, was recruited by a man who headed the Novordos—that is, Mark Besst—and is likely that powerful in the business because he now controls the record label that you and Fozz once controlled after he won that lawsuit in 2003, likely because Mark Besst backed him and likely he won because Besst bribed the judge, or maybe even threatened the judge.”

“Yes.” Drakk then hung his head in apprehension.

“So I know who you believe, or know, who committed the dirty deed.”

“And that is—”

“I don’t need to say his name, and his celebrity name is not his real name of course, but his ‘stage name’ so-to-speak. All I have to do is look up his real name on some search engine using his stage name. And you know of whom I speak, so I will not have to even mention his name. And he is the one who did it, correct?”

“Yes.” Still hung his head. Guilty feeling?

“But the thing is, Drakk, was you-know-who originally part of the plot? Or did you or Fozz or both of you recruit you-know-who to do the killing instead, offering him some reward for doing so?”

“Yes.”

And what was that reward? Being signed to the FozzWorld rap label a short time  later—for at the time he was only fifteen-years-old and was just getting his rap career started—and his sex partner ‘career’ started with former Hellyon Inner Sanctum member, tech guru Mark Besst.

And then Drakk revealed to me how it all went down.

With loved ones coming out to visit and other events, my next post, likely from The Murder Rule Part Two, will be in mid-July. I also need to do some editing of this Part One as well.

Even Members of the Evil Elites Can Repent and Receive Salvation: If One of My Most Evil Fictional Characters Can Do It…

Folks, either I am going to write novels about why folks should at least consider accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior (because no one should be forced to do so), or write novels exposing the evil in this world, a world ruled by ‘principalities and powers’ and ‘wickedness in high places’ (Ephesians 6:12). The Prodigal Band Trilogy is about a fictitious rock band that after serving evil, repents, and accepts Christ as Lord and Savior—but it also exposes the evil in this world. The novel I am working on now, The Murder Rule, while mentioning main characters that did in fact accept Christ as Lord and Savior, is primarily about exposing evil, and not just in the music industry. Part One is nearly complete and will be finished likely before the end of June, 2022. Part Two is more than half finished. Part Three (and possibly a Part Four), that will also feature important characters from The Prodigal Band Trilogy, will go much further in exposing evil.

The snippet post below, from Chapter Sixteen of The Prodigal Band, features one of the trilogy’s most evil characters who is nearing death, Baron Torquay-Lambourgeau, head of several secret societies serving the satanic character Corion, as well as leading world-wide banker and one of the richest men on Earth. What happened to this man nearing death was miraculous, and I will not provide a ‘spoiler alert.’ But what happened was inspired by the FACT that not all members of the elites are evil, and, in FACT, a few have actually repented and accepted Christ as Lord and Savior.

Snippets-to-Spin-Offs: The Murder Rule, and More (Part Six)–The Plot Thickens

Hopefully, by mid-June, Part One of The Murder Rule will be completed (and then comes the editing part). It is mostly completed already. Part Two, featuring roadie Bobby Jones, is mostly completed but I need to manuscript the climax and leading up to the climax. Then comes Part Three and maybe, Part Four. The plan is to complete the entire novel, The Murder Rule, before the end of 2022.

This post is the one that leads up to the climax of Part One of The Murder Rule, where narrator and pop-culture pundit Lloyd Denholm begins to come to the conclusion through investigations as to who murdered fictitious rock star Denny Spradlin in early 1996.

Spradlin’s band mate Blake Fenmore has requested of the pop culture magazine X-Zine to have pundit and free-lancer Denholm to find out ‘who done it’ and how. The request was made in Spring, 2005. In this snippet, Denholm meets with Blake at his rock house in the Lake District of northwest England. Below is the snippet, copyright © 2022 by Deborah Lagarde:

Snippets-to-Spinoffs (Part Five): The Murder Rule Part One Meets Part Two

When novels are divided into parts or sequels or series, there always have to be connections from one part to another part, or the next part, or the sequel, or series or trilogy novels. And there must be connections to any novels of which they are ‘spun-off.’

The previous post entitled Proof that my new novel, The Murder Rule, is derived from my Prodigal Band Trilogy (Episode One), shows how the new novel is based on the trilogy. In this post, using characters that narrate Parts One and Two of The Murder Rule, there, too, are references to parts of The Prodigal Band Trilogy. The narrator of Part One of The Murder Rule is pop culture pundit Lloyd Denholm, who is the narrator of The Prodigal Band, and the narrator of Part Two is Bobby Jones, a prodigal band roadie minor character of both Battle of the Band and The Prodigal Band. Within a chapter for Part One of The Murder Rule, Bobby meets with Lloyd at Denholm’s apartment in the fictitious city of Richmont, California, in 2002, so he can reveal what he learned about the ‘suicided’ and murdered rocker, Denny Spradlin, that proves Denny was indeed murdered. The proof comes to Bobby from a prominent support character working for ‘the Good,’ the so-called ‘witch,’ Morwenna, who, along with God’s angels, the Tooters, guides the prodigal band Sound Unltd in their ‘missions of God.’ And a reminder: The Murder Rule is copyright by Deborah Lagarde and will be registered with the Library of Congress when officially published, hopefully, this year.

Proof That My New Novel, The Murder Rule, is Derived from My Prodigal Band Trilogy, Episode One

In Part One of a three-or-four-or more part new novel that will likely be titled The Murder Rule is featured the ‘suicide,’ which is actually a murder, of a minor character within the first trilogy novel, Battle of the Band, a rocker and friend of the prodigal band, named Denny Spradlin, front man of another Brit band called Wolfin. As with some of the prodigal band members, he is also a drug addict but is trying to end that addiction and find some meaning in his real non-celebrity life. He is also trying to leave behind the evil agenda within the music industry he knows he helped bring about.

In order to claim The Murder Rule is derived or ‘spun-off’ from The Prodigal Band Trilogy, parts of the trilogy had to come into focus while writing the manuscript for the new novel. In a couple of days, I managed to write two whole chapters that feature both the narrator or Battle of the Band as well as The Prophesied Band, pop culture pundit Jay Elliot, and the narrator of The Prodigal Band as well as The Murder Rule, pop culture pundit Lloyd Denholm. Lloyd, a Brit, moved to the fictitious California coastal city called Richmont, where Elliot also lived, so that the two could work on a pop culture magazine project about the history of rock music into the 90s and 2000s. But the topic of Spradlin’s demise kept cropping up in conversations between the two, due to the fact that various other rock stars of that time had also died or nearly died, rockers Elliot knew because these rockers tended to confide in him. Due to what Elliot had been told by some members of the prodigal band Sound Unltd and others, both came to the conclusion that murder, not suicide, caused Denny Spradlin’s death.

Two or more snippets from Part One of The Murder Rule will be featured in the coming weeks; right now, I will post a snippet from Part One of The Murder Rule to begin this series. I will not list the Chapter this comes from since I might change the arrangement of chapters and manuscript prior to publication later. And a reminder: The Murder Rule is copyright by Deborah Lagarde and will be registered with the Library of Congress when officially published, hopefully, this year.

Update On When Snippets Become Spin-offs: The Murder Rule (Part Two)

Within the previous post I had posted just this past Monday was this snippet line from the new novel manuscript I plan to publish:

“A hooded man has forced poison up my nose, not skuz. Pray for my soul. Denny.”

Jimi Hendrix was murdered in a somewhat similar fashion (but through the trachea, not the nose), as I state in this post from last year.

Hendrix, whose father was connected to the military as with Jim Morrison—another ’27 Club’ member who died under suspect circumstances—was politically tied to the Black Panthers and was being surveilled by a CoIntelPro CIA operation….and maybe that handler involved with this was his manager, Michael Jeffrey. Jeffrey had ‘intelligence ties and Mafia connections.’ Those intelligence ties include MI-6. But the likely reason Jeffrey could be implicated in Hendrix’s “suicide” was that he stole lots of money from Hendrix, who then sued Jeffrey—who just happened to have a 2 million dollar life insurance policy holding on Hendrix’s life as beneficiary! Right before the lawsuit trial, Hendrix “committed suicide.” While the media claimed “he choked on his own vomit” due to drug OD, evidence noted in the video states he had wine in his lungs, likely forced into his trachea while being held down forcefully…in other words, he drowned in wine. According to the video, Jeffrey “confessed” to a friend in the business that he was part of the murder.

By the way, I wrote that part about Denny’s murder before I learned about how Hendrix was murdered!

When Snippets Become Spin-Offs: The Murder Rule, and More (Part Two)

In the previous post, here, I discussed the new novel-in-parts that for right now will be called The Murder Rule, with two parts already being worked on and one or two or three more parts being considered—there will be at least one more part to this novel. Here is a snippet from the previous post linked above featuring two of the main characters within this first part:

In order to introduce this novel-in-the-works, I will begin with a snippet that will introduce a major character within The Murder Rule. He is another rock star, singer Denny Spradlin of the band that helped mentor the prodigal band Sound Unltd, called Wolfin. (Note: it was originally called ‘Wolfen,’ but since that is the name of an 80s mystery movie set in the Bronx, I had to change the spelling.) Denny and his collaborator, guitarist Blake Fenmore, while loving their fame and fortune, eventually turn into nothing but party animals and eventually become lazy and stop producing hits, falling into has-been-dom, which leads to trouble and danger. Denny becomes a ‘useless eater’ of sorts to those controlling the music industry evil agenda; further, he is addicted to the opioid designer drug mentioned in the trilogy, called skuz.

The previous post linked above ends with a snippet from Chapter Nine of Battle of the Band that inspired this part of the new novel. This snippet ends with a televised report of Denny being found dead ‘from a drug overdose,’ which shocked the viewer of this report, the singer for the prodigal band, Erik, who considered the possibility that Denny might commit suicide even though Denny told him he wouldn’t even consider it.

This notion of a rock star committing ‘suicide’ has been commonplace since the 60s, if not a drug overdose: Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington were prominently featured in my post from last June, here, about ‘if dead rock stars could talk.’ Some of these deaths, which have been proven of late to have likely been murders, caused some inspiration for my trilogy, considering that it seemed as if these murders happened because these rockers went against the evil narrative that has been growing within the music industry since the 60s. And because my fictional prodigal band Sound Unltd slowly but surely turned against the narrative, they too would be planned ‘victims.’ Only it didn’t quite work out as the fictional evil music industry overlords had hoped for the prodigal band. Unfortunately for Denny, the evil ‘plan’ did work; but before he died, Denny put a kink of sorts into the ‘plan.’

And that brings me to this snippet from The Murder Rule, which features the entire first chapter. The first part features Wolfin singer Denny Spradlin and an ‘advisor’ and ‘friend’ who just happens to represent the music industry evil narrative, who is ‘advising’ Denny (as well as fellow band member and ‘party animal’ Blake Fenmore, Wolfin’s guitarist) to, so to speak, ‘do what you’re told.’ Get back to the music business in order to make hits and hit videos; recruit for the agenda ‘mission’ according to what is called ‘The Pleasure Rule,’ and mentor these future rock stars according to the industry narrative—in reality, recruit for the evil, which in The Prodigal Band Trilogy is known as Corion, the ‘god’ of the evil and satanic cult called ‘The Church of the Circle of Unity.’ For there are ‘consequences’ for those who fail to fulfill these ‘missions.’

Random Trilogy Snippets of Random Events That Lead to Climactic Events, Part Three (from The Prodigal Band)

There really are two climaxes within the third novel of The Prodigal Band Trilogy, called The Prodigal Band. There is the one at the end where the band is victorious over the evil-controlled Mark Besst. Then there is the one right in the middle of the novel where the prodigal band Sound Unltd is nearly killed or seriously injured by a bomb planted under a seat on their private jet at the airport in Philadelphia.

This snippet post deals with the first climactic event. To begin the story that concludes in this post is the notion of why the prodigal band is called Sound Unltd in the first place. In Chapter One of Battle of the Band, the angelic Tooters tell their messenger, the ‘witch of the Hovels,’ what will become the name of a ‘rock band’ of the future that will carry out the will of The Creator. “Their name will be sound, unlimited.”

Random Trilogy Snippets of Random Events That Lead to Climactic Events, Part Two (from The Prophesied Band)

In terms of what most would call a “climactic event” within a novel, this snippet scenario in this post might not classify as a climactic event in strict terms, but for the band members that witness this event, it should be, seeing as how they react when they find out a secret they had no knowledge about.

Note: I removed the “spoiler alerts” in these snippets.

The climactic event to finish Battle of the Band, where singer Erik and bassist Keith are in comas at a local private hospital in their home city of Walltown and encounter good vs. evil in their spiritual voids as their fellows watch over them and as the evil Swami Negran attempts to capture their souls for the satanic Corion (thwarted by God’s angels, the Tooters, and their agent, the ‘witch’ of the Hovels), gets recounted within Chapters Four and Five of The Prophesied Band.

In this snippet, it turns out that Swami couldn’t capture their souls, as hard as he tried. So Corion, the devil character, punished Negran by causing him to disappear from the hospital. Negran was in fact taken by Corion into Corion’s abyss where the Creator had placed him in Chapter One of Battle of the Band as punishment for Corion’s rebellion against God. But Negran wouldn’t be the only one Corion takes into the abyss. In 50 AD, Crynnwagg, high priest of the cannibal Crag-Dweller cult, was also done that way. Why? And then he escaped the abyss.  Why? Hmmmm…. From Chapter Five of The Prophesied Band:

Random Trilogy Snippets, Part One: Perilous Times

Perilous times? It sure seems that way! Just yesterday, a major hurricane invaded a part of the state of Louisiana where family members live and I pray they got through it safely. Just a week or so ago, a war that the US never should have gotten involved with in the first place, ended in a strange and somewhat infamous fashion as have so many other wars in this country have ended since the times of Alexander the Great! So-called “pandemics” which seem to have been created for nefarious purposes as if we’re living in a sci-fi or a dystopian thriller scenario. Child, adult, human, sex, whatever trafficking under the guise of ‘immigration,’ and not just in the US, either, but worldwide mostly for profit or other evil purposes. Earthquakes, typhoons, tsunamis, volcano eruptions, fires across northern California and Russia…as desert-mountain far west Texas hasn’t seen this much rain and flooding since 2004! Okay, okay, 2017…. Corrupt governments that only a criminal psychopath could love. And more….and will everyone soon be required to get ‘your papers, please’ just to travel to see loved ones or work or go to school or whatever?

And speaking of ‘your papers, please’….

The second novel of The Prodigal Band Trilogy, The Prophesied Band, goes into this ‘papers please’ notion. This novel, as stated in a previous post on ‘how’ the trilogy was written and why, was completed around the time that many thought was indeed perilous, that time of government actions against so-called ‘right-wing militias’ and other ‘rebellious’ groups such as the Branch Davidians. This mid- and late-90s period was when various alternative media organs warned against globalism and their so-called ‘new world order’ (mentioned by former president George HW Bush in one of his speeches) run mostly by ‘one-world-government’ organs like the United Nations. Perilous? Some Christian groups even believed that the ‘end times’ were coming quickly,  and, further, various evangelical types began harping on ‘the rapture,’ including the authors of a fictional novel series called ‘Left Behind.’

That was then, but this is now, with a new paradigm called ‘the Great Reset.’ Do I even need to regurgitate the saying about owning nothing and being happy? (And is this saying copyrighted? Bwahahahahahahaha!). So that whether it is ‘pandemics’ or screwed-up economics or political skullduggery or wars and rumors of wars or crazy weather or earth-shattering events, these do seem like perilous times. ‘Papers, please’ or not.
