ANGELS OF DARKNESS concludes the Chris Lyon story arc to date—one that begins with PARTS UNKNOWN, continues in CARNIVAL NOIR (available for free download Saturday, Aug. 3-Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2013) and on through CABAL.
CARNIVAL NOIR introduces the pivotal woman in Chris Lyon's life, Salome Arnaud. (Sharp eyed readers will have made Chris and Salome's acquaintance in my standalone novel from Tyrus Books, EL GAVILAN.)
The new novel also ties up some loose ends from the second Hector Lassiter novel, TOROS & TORSOS, and sheds important light on other aspects of Hector's life and eventual fate leading into the final four, still-to-be-published Hector Lassiter novels.
Here's the pitch for ANGELS:
"Chris Lyon and Hector Lassiter join forces for the first (and last?) time: For centuries, a secret cult has contrived to satisfy its blood lust while quietly prodding history this way or that. For nearly as long, an ancient order of Scottish knights has fought them.
"Stretching from the Scottish Highlands to snow-swept Chicago, ANGELS OF DARKNESS is the fourth and final novel in the 'Dark Cabal Quartet,' an audacious, breakneck saga of serial murder and secret history; a wildly original thriller about the efforts of two long-persecuted men caught in the crossfire not just to survive, but to turn the tables on both sides to devastating effect."
HEAD GAMES is at last available in Mexico.
HG was the novel that introduced Hector Lassiter, putting in his hands the stolen head of the Mexican Revolutionary general Pancho Villa, and launching the Lassiter series.
(HEAD GAMES is still forthcoming in graphic novel format. For a glimpse of some of the art, see this blog post for its publishers from a while back.)
Some new interviews in Spanish regarding the novel can be found here and here. Also, there's this great book trailer for the Mexican edition...
