In the tradition of THE DAVINCI CODE, THE BROKEN KEY is a treasure hunt-style mystery thriller, set in the near future and grounded by actual historical facts.  A series of murders and clues will bring Arthur, an English academic, to partake on a twisty trail marked centuries before by Dante and the painter Hieronymus Bosch.  Arthur must investigate the complex universe of symbology and overcome his deepest fears, in order to shed light on the ritual murders that were inspired by the Seven Deadly Sins.  Arthur discovers the killer’s motive was to preserve a secret, as ancient as the world.  He uncovers that the killers are part of a secret sect and are guardians of this ancestral secret.  This is a symbolic and exciting journey, littered with pitfalls and sudden plot twists, which gives an insight into humanity’s past, present and future.  The symbolism that is incorporated also allows for different levels of interpretation.

If he can find a way to repair the clock and get its bell running, there won’t be any need for a cock-a-doodle-doo in the morning.  But Sabzak doesn’t know anything about clocks until he encounters a mysterious crow who has magic pumpkin seeds.  The magic seeds can give Sabzak the ability to get the grandfather clock working again. But Joojoo catches wind of Sabzak’s plans and joins forces with the town’s nefarious sheriff to foil them. After all, who needs a rooster if there’s a grandfather clock waking everyone up at sunrise? Just as the frog and the rooster begin to square off for the future of Gargor Lake, the effects of the magical pumpkin seed start to wear off.
