My new novel, The Gatekeeper, is now for sale (eBook) edition at AMAZON.COM and AMAZON.CO.UK.
Ebook edition from Aldergun Ebooks.
Four Talismans of Power: The Cup, the Spear, the Sword and the Stone. Throughout history they have been known by many names including the Grail, the Spear of Destiny, Excalibur and Tara. Their power is legendary and their individual appearance in this dimension has always heralded great change. Together they could bring about a time of peace and enlightenment or they could unleash Hell on Earth. They have not been brought together since the forging of the world - until now.
Investigating a series of murders linked to a druidic sect practising the dark arts, Inspector John Holmes is unwittingly led to play a pivotal role in a ritual from the ancient book ‘The Angelicus Infernal’, thought to have been written by Lucifer himself.
The ritual brings the four talismans of power together and opens a gateway to a nightmare world that unleashes armies of hellish creatures that spread throughout Europe leaving mayhem, death and destruction in their wake.
The only hope for humanity is thought to be contained in a secret chapter in The Book of Kells written by The Columban monks in 800AD. Holmes must locate it and decipher the code in a race against time to close the Gates of Hell.
