Las Vegas. It's a city of big winners and bigger losers, where fortunes tumble with a roll of the dice. Under all the glitz and sleaze, though, there's another Vegas: a city infested by monsters in human skin, drenched in occult corruption. It's the kind of place where a dash of black magic and a gun could be the only thing standing between you and the gates of hell. The kind of place a man like Daniel Faust calls home.
Faust is nobody's hero. He's a card-carrying villain by trade, a thief and sorcerer just trying to make a dishonest buck in Sin City. He doesn't have to go looking for trouble, though: trouble finds him. Surviving by his wits, he does his best to save the day (if he absolutely has to), save his own skin (preferably), and beat the odds on his way to the next big score.
VIGILANT LOCK is an illegal covert operation concealed within the United States government. In a world where criminal syndicates shield their operations under the cloak of black magic, corporate oligarchs rise to power with blood sacrifices and demonic patronage, and terrorist cells are upgrading from bombs to occult bioweapons, Vigilant's mandate is clear: investigate, exterminate, and keep the truth out of the headlines at all costs.
Harmony Black, FBI agent and Vigilant asset (and occasional thorn in Daniel Faust's side), has a new team and a new mission. Together they'll shine a light across the shadows of modern America, unraveling secret histories and unspeakable crimes. Nobody can be trusted. No place is safe. And your closest ally may have a bullet with your name on it. From Las Vegas to Miami Beach, from corporate towers to black-ops safehouses, getting the job done means navigating a web of danger and deception. And Harmony and her team will get the job done. After all, they're the good guys.
A world away from Daniel Faust and Harmony Black -- though perhaps not as far as you might think -- awaits the intrigue and danger of The Revanche Cycle. As Pope Benignus lies in his deathbed and an empire awaits his successor, a madman puts his apocalyptic plan for revenge into motion. His web of conspiracy will snare an unlikely gathering of souls from a barmaid and her lover, to a pair of low-rent bounty hunters, to the pope's iron-willed daughter, their roads converging in a broken, war-ravaged land.
This is a realm of intrigue, betrayal, and all-consuming corruption. A realm where politics can be as deadly as poison -- and more often than not, the two go hand-in-hand.
