Book fourteen in the Inspector Lestrade series. ‘From his brimstone bed at the break of day, A-walking the Devil is gone, To visit his snug little farm, the earth, And see how his stock goes on.’ Coleridge and Southey ‘Sholto Joseph Lestrade, I am arresting you on suspicion of the murder of Mrs Millicent Millichip on January 13th last in the City of Westminster.’ Lestrade had never been arrested before. Neither had he faced the drop. But when a woman died in his arms in the middle of a London pea-souper, the Fates were stacked against him. Millicent Millichip, as it turned out, was not the only victim in a series of murders where the only clue was the Devil’s calling card. And the Devil struck in such diverse places as the croquet lawn of Castle Drogo, the theatre of war games on Hounslow Heath and the offices of Messrs Constable, publishers extraordinary, in Orange Street. The condemned cell at Pentonville is a lonely place, even for a man with a loving family and powerful friends. But are they powerful enough?

When Crossman is selected to lead a covert operation, he knows that his success or failure could determine the outcome of the war. Whether he and his men will survive their mission is another matter.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. The devil goes by many names, and his tribe is legion. Throughout human history, we have been obsessed with the dark opposites of God and angels, light, and mercy. Whether it is our religious and sacred texts, folklore and myths of old, legends, fairy tales, novels, or the movies and television shows of today, the dark entities enthrall us, terrify us, and remind us of the dualities of life. But where did they originate? Are they real? Does every religion or region of the world include them? Exploring over two dozen religious traditions, myths, folkloric and spiritual traditions, the world of the supernatural, and the demons, the Devil, and fallen angels in today’s pop culture, Demons, the Devil, and Fallen Angels is a comprehensive resource of the many faces of the devil, his minions, ominous deities, and the darker side of nature and ourselves. From ancient demon worship to modern Satanism, the bloody era of the Inquisitions and later witch burnings to the Satanic Panic of the late-twentieth century, and secret occult societies to Hitler's involvement with demonology, this book covers it all. Readers will learn about the key figures in history associated with demons and the Devil, the worshiping of the dark forces, and the lives of Aleister Crowle, John Dee, and Anton LaVey, as well as well-known figures who were alleged Satanists, some of whom may surprise you! Also featured are dozens of examples of links between demons/fallen angels and aliens, cryptids, apparitions and poltergeists, and IDEs (interdimensional entities). Were the demons of the Bible possibly ancient alien visitors? Are alien abductions and poltergeists really demons in disguise? Is Slender Man a modern day demonic entity ... or totally fake? This fascinating look at Satan, evil spirits, and their 10,000-year history has 120 photographs, drawings, and illustrations to bring the portraits of over 200 demons and fallen angels to shivering life. Demons, the Devil, and Fallen Angels also includes a helpful bibliography and an extensive index, adding to its usefulness. It is a comprehensive, clear, and objective look at a subject that fills most people with fear and dread. Yet the presence of dark angels continues to remain a part of our human experience, our popular culture, and our spiritual understandings. Come and explore the shadowy side of existence and its integral part of our nature.

Without warning his ex-wife springs from the ashes of the past and reaches out to him in his capacity as a veteran Immigration Custom Enforcement agent. When Sam’s ex-wife dumps a father’s living nightmare into his lap, he must choose between doing his duty as a law enforcer and jeopardizing his cherished relationship with his daughter. Circumstances beyond his control leave him no choice. Before he can seek forgiveness, TERRI ANNE disappears. Sam neglects his duties as an ICE agent and becomes obsessed in finding her. In the wake of his search he discovers a trail of murder, illegal Green Card marriages, and unveils a jihadist’s plot to launch a terror attack on American soil. Truth and time are ICE agent SAM STEELE’S enemy. SYLVIA MAROUN, the ex-wife, is a self-absorbed middle-aged woman with an appetite for young foreign men. Money and her sexuality have always been the solution to her problems. Sylvia becomes mired in a predicament she can’t buy her way out of and is unprepared for the reality of her young husband’s latest love interest. She will face the sins of her past. TERRI ANNE is a young naïve college student with above average book smarts, but lacks a thimbleful of common sense. These characteristics combined with the desire to escape the confines of a smothering and overprotective father will land Terri in the middle of murder and into the arms of a terrorist sleeper cell. MAGGIE O’MALLEY is Sam’s spunky assistant and lover for twelve years who has a difficult time keeping her thoughts to herself. She harbors a secret past she hopes will help Sam unravel the disappearance of his daughter. In her zealous attempt to save the day she not only jeopardizes her relationship with Sam, but also her own life. RASHID MAROUN is an impulsive, charming, narcissist playboy who successfully arranges Green Card marriages. On the surface, his main motivations are money and a good time. Beneath that glitz lurks a cunning villain looking for an escape from his rich wife and fanatical cousin, Jaali. JAALI DIAAB is a renegade and impatient radical who is rejected by the inner circle of jihadists. He is determined to prove to the world that there are other warriors besides Al Qaida, Hamas, and Isis that can strike a blow in the heart of the Great Satan. When his foolish cousin, Rashid, becomes involved in murder, it jeopardizes the mission he has been planning for months. INTO THE DEVIL’S DEN weaves a tangled tale of suspense, murder, and treachery. Each twisted circumstance is triggered by the one (albeit well intentioned) lie Sam Steele told his daughter — a lie that erupts into more lies and leaves lives dangling by a single thread.
