The Conjurer

Free sample

U.S.Marshal Piquet must stop a serial killer nicknamed The Exterminator. He partners with long-time rival, FBI Agent Riddick. The case becomes a race against time when Piquet discovers the killer is the Angel of Death summoned by a conjurer who wants him dead. Enlisting the aid of  a forensic genius and a psychic,  Piquet must come to terms with his troubled past and break the fiendish spell before the Exterminator sends him to his grave. This is the first in the Marshal Piquet series, and will appeal to readers aged 17 and older interested in magic, witchcraft, psychic phenomenon and romance. There is enough magic for most fantasy readers, enough action to satisfy fans of Harlan Coben or Elmore Leonard, a sufficient body count to attract horror fans, and enough realism to suspend the doubt of anyone with an average measure of curiosity and imagination.

New York Times Bestseller: A young girl’s visions offer the last hope in a postapocalyptic wasteland in this “grand and disturbing adventure” (Dean Koontz).
Swan is a nine-year-old Idaho girl following her struggling mother from one trailer park to the next when she receives visions of doom—something far wider than the narrow scope of her own beleaguered life. In a blinding flash, nuclear bombs annihilate civilization, leaving only a few buried survivors to crawl onto a scorched landscape that was once America.
In Manhattan, a homeless woman stumbles from the sewers, guided by the prophecies of a mysterious amulet, and pursued by something wicked; on Idaho’s Blue Dome Mountain, an orphaned boy falls under the influence of depraved survivalists and discovers the value of a killer instinct; and amid the devastating dust storms on the Great Plains of Nebraska, Swan forms a heart-and-soul bond with an unlikely new companion. Soon they will cross paths. But only Swan knows that they must endure more than just a trek across an irradiated country of mutated animals, starvation, madmen, and wasteland warriors.
Swan’s visions tell of a coming malevolent force. It’s a shape-shifting embodiment of the apocalypse, and of all that is evil and despairing. And it’s hell-bent on destroying the last hope of goodness and purity in the world. Swan is that hope. Now, she must fight not only for her own survival, but for that of all mankind.
A winner of the Bram Stoker Award and a finalist for the World Fantasy Award, Swan Song has become a modern classic, called “a chilling vision that keeps you turning pages to the shocking end” by John Saul and “a long, satisfying look at hell and salvation” by Publishers Weekly.
