    To prevent the rebirth of the Nazi regime, an ex-CIA agent turns SS hunter in this thriller of deception, buried history, and a far-reaching conspiracy.   In the hell of Auschwitz, the devil was named Mengele. His atrocities were unspeakable, and among his victims were the wife and child of a man named Wasserman, who was forced to watch them die. Mengele survived the war, disappearing into hiding in South America, and Wasserman ran too—fleeing to the United States to make a fortune as a Hollywood porn king. Now he is dying of cancer, but before he goes, he wants Mengele dead.   To see the Angel of Death hunted down and killed, Wasserman recruits former Vietnam vet and ex-CIA agent John Caine. Caine’s journey into the heart of darkness takes him from a neo-Nazi Odessa network in Paraguay to Jerusalem to a sinister cadre in Vienna and finally to the South American jungles. It is here, deep in the Amazon, that Caine believes he’s met his match—a doctor revered by the headhunting natives, and determined to keep his isolated clinic a secret from the civilized world.   But Caine’s mission is only beginning. The victim of a shocking deception, he’ll soon be the hunted, as an unwitting key player in one of the greatest conspiracies of our time.   From a master of the spy thriller, the author of the award-winning novels based on the Showtime series Homeland: Carrie’s Run and Homeland: Saul’s Game, this is a tale of twists and vengeance that’s “like a ride on the Magic Mountain rollercoaster” (Los Angeles Times).

    Who is Elle Black? 
    Elle Black, an unconventional psychic detective in an unconventional Victorian marriage, leaves her lovely lesbian wife to answer a desperate plea. Guests are vanishing in a mechanical hotel known as the Sundark, and Elle must use her 'anomalous perturbationist' gift–the ability to move objects with her mind–to save herself and the remaining hotel residents from malevolent, sidereal powers. But with apparitions appearing, magnetic lines disrupted, and clairvoyant guests lurking, who is the true murderer . . . or murderess? 
    “A smart, solid, satisfying pulp Gothic.” 
    Nathan Long, author of the Ulrika the Vampire and Jane Carver of Waar series 
    An F/F romance and historical fantasy in a Victorian, supernatural London, follow the telekinetic Elle Black, a twenty-two year old, happily remarried widow, as she solves mysteries in the same paranormal world as the Dark Victorian series by Elizabeth Watasin. Where Secret Commission agents Artifice and Jim Dastard haven't time to tread, Elle Black will take up the lead and follow. 
    A lesbian female sleuth series: 
    Deep in London's Chiselhurst lies the Sundark, a magnificent, mechanical manor built in earlier times by a master illusionist and his occultist wife. Its guests have been known to stay, only to never be seen again. Now converted into a hotel, is the rumor some publicity lure or a cover for fleeing, non-paying residents? Elle Black, a housewife and telekinetic among London detectives and Secret Commission agents, is summoned to solve this mystery as more victims vanish, faster than before. 
    What Gothic horror awaits as the psychic sleuth leaves her beautiful wife Faedra to investigate the seemingly harmless, clockwork turnings of Sundark's rooms and towers? During her first night’s vigil, Elle slips into the chilling, preternatural past as ghosts walk, gaslamps become candles, floors and walls mechanically move, and yet another unlucky guest screams in terror and vanishes. 
    But whatever is behind the vanishings did not count on making Elle angry...

    A good salary and an all-expenses-paid summer spent a sprawling Arizona ranch is too good a deal for fledgling anthropologist D.J. Abbott to turn down. What does it matter that her rich new employer/benefactor, Hank Hunnicutt, is a certified oddball who is presently funding all manner of off-beat projects, from alien conspiracy studies to a hunt for dragon bones? There's even talk of treasure buried in the nearby mountains, but D.J. isn't going to allow loose speculation -- or the considerable charms of handsome professional treasure hunter Jesse Franklin -- to sidetrack her. Until Hunnicutt suffers a mysterious accident and then vanishes, leaving the weirdos gathered at his spread to eye each other with frightened suspicion. But on a high desert search for the missing millionaire, D.J. is learning things that may not be healthy for her to know. For the game someone is playing here goes far beyond the rational universe -- and it could leave D.J. legitimately dead.
