A supernatural catalyst for death rises from an ancient myth. Can a federal agent and a medieval scholar stop its terror before it spreads across the US?
Riots are sweeping the US but the media can’t pinpoint their cause and can’t predict the next riot outbreak. Racial tensions run always high somewhere in the country—but never in the place of the riot. Washington DC is the prime choice of groups who seek to showcase their cause, but it’s always been peaceful demonstrations—until now.
When a peaceful protest leaves thousands dead and injured protesters, lying practically on the White House lawn, the country’s many law agencies are forced into uneasy co-operation. But only one such officer of the law, who has to hide his badge as part of his job, looks for perpetrators in the least likely place—in the history books. What he discovers is neither comforting, nor revealing—only more worrisome. Dr. Stella Hunter, a reclusive mythology expert from Montana is the academic who offers not only a proof but explanation. Except she is thought to be a crackpot. Yet in the absence of other sources, Carter has to take her story—and history—at face value.
The product of ancient myths and legends is cutting a bloody path across the continent, and someone has to stop him. The problem is, that no one knows who it is, where he is and how to neutralize an ancient curse.Buy on Amazon
