The third novel in the trilogy that began with The Lovecraft Code and continued with Dunwich concludes the globe-spanning tale of Professor Gregory Angell and his attempt to keep the Necronomicon out of the clutches of a gaggle of secret societies, and his life out of the grasp of terrorists and intelligence agents.
Angell makes his way back to the Americas after trekking across Central Asia, China, and sailing the South China Sea to Indonesia. In the meantime, the search for the missing Professor and the all-important Book consumes Dwight Monroe and his team while a string of murders in New Orleans baffles Detective Cuneo and brings NYPD Lieutenant Wasserman out of retirement in Brooklyn.
At the same time, the young Yezidi woman Jamila, with a strange paranormal ability and a deadly aim, finds herself on a mission in the United States to take out the man who destroyed her village.
A distraught mother whose two sons were abducted by a sinister being is now pregnant with another child and travels around the country looking for answers in gatherings of UFO contactees and the rites of a voodoo priestess where she will have to confront a mind-bending truth.
And they all find themselves drawn together at a building in one of America’s iconic cities at a house with a bizarre architecture that is based on a strange but sacred geometry, a geometry that’s designed to call down something from the stars.
Based on themes from the works of H.P. Lovecraft and especially “The Haunter of the Dark” where the mysterious Shining Trapezohedron makes its appearance, this novel ties together the various strands of occult knowledge, political intrigue, and pop culture that are woven through the first two books.
Hailed by author Christopher Farnsworth (Red, White and Blood, and The President’s Vampire) as a “more intelligent DaVinci Code” and by Whitley Strieber (Communion, The Wolfen, and The Hunger) as “a riveting work of fiction,” this book will thrill ancient aliens fans and Lovecraft aficionados, and is supported by genuine scholarship among occultists, terrorists, military leaders and intelligence agents.
