  • Lost World adventure No. II. In the face of an Atlantic hurricane, two girls and a boatload of men from various nations pit their strength against the appalling rigours of the open sea. Tension mounts. The desirable Synolda is forced into the arms of a man who knows her past and uses that knowledge. A man with hatred in his eyes – a hatred that can only be satisfied with blood.

Illustrated by John Roberts.
  • Father John Rafferty is plunged into scandal when a young women he has been counselling is brutally murdered in his Greenwich Village church. This is no isolated act of violence, but a manifestation of a spiritual plague so deep and subtle it will tests all his faith and courage.  Beset by public scorn and private doubt, Father John is vulnerable.  His reputation is besmirched, his parish besieged by outside forces and betrayed from within by an evil as ancient as creation itself.  When he finally recognises the truth, he must overcome his horror and tap the ageless power of the priesthood if he is to fulfil his role as bulwark against the shadows that seek endlessly to engulf him.  The Devil walks among us every day and his face is far more familiar than we can bear to believe.

And when Adriana found out the horrifying truth, there was nowhere to run, no one to turn to, no way to save her immortal soul....
