Behind a Pale Mask: The New Ferryman Novel
“You know me to be a ferryman,” I said, pushing the circlet up and over my forehead. “How?”
“Why, by taking one look at you, that’s how! You’ve no mask, that much is true, nor have you a scythe, as I’ve said … you’ve the cloak, all right, but that can be purchased at even the lowliest of costume shops; I’ve one just like it in my wagon here, in fact. No, this is something in the face itself. It’s an aura.” He paused, appraising me coldly. “You’ve the heart of a ferryman.”
After a moment I replied, “I knew a woman once who said the very opposite.”
“A woman, eh? She must have feared you very much.”

Tucked away in a high-tech Tactical Operations Center, inside an isolated safehouse in the Horn of Africa, sits Agency analyst Zack Altringham. He is Kenyan-born, Princeton-educated, badly burnt-out – and condemned by his language and cultural skills to a lifetime of fighting America’s shadow counter-terror wars.
But when another mystery epidemic breaks out, and terrifyingly quickly reaches a tipping point, chaos descends – and Zack and his team (including two former Team Six SEALs) are trapped between the millstones of the sick and the dying on one side, and heavily armed militias on the other. Soon their “safe” house is in flames, and their only remaining option is to get in their up-armored SUV and try to escape the imploding gravity well of the city, to the safety of the American military base in Djibouti. But by then, will there be anywhere safe left on Earth to escape to?

The summer of ’94 was going to be big. At least, that’s what Benny promised her. From Willapa Bay to Todos Santos, every dinky town had something for them to take. Neverpine wasn’t supposed to be any different and Jolene Summers was never supposed to leave him.
But she did. And now she’s dead.
Laurie Le Gall wasn’t supposed to find the body. Nobody was. Plagued by morose questions from a fading past, he does the only reasonable thing anyone might do.
He brings her back.
Only now, Jolene can’t remember who she is and Benny isn’t leaving town without her.
She was never supposed to be more than a grim study in resurrection and he was never supposed to care.
Nevergrave is a full-length, standalone novel.
The Jesus Man
It is 2037. Radicals in the Middle East have done the unthinkable. Low-yield nuclear weapons have been unleashed and the subsequent escalation of exchanges is enough to blacken the skies.
In time, the world goes dark. Crops fail and economies begin the inevitable collapse. Countries close their borders, cease trading with one another and declare martial law to control their populations. As oil and power dwindle, the descent into chaos follows and the global meltdown unfolds. An entity arrives and this malevolent force begins its strategy to claim this broken territory as a piece in a long-waged celestial conflict. Moving half a century ahead, the story centres on a colony entrenched in the desert of the Four Corners region of the United States. It is a place of sanctuary, established in the post-war years and grown to be a stronghold in the badlands. In the wake of the entity’s global strategy, it stands as the sole remaining seat of the human race. Its citizens are ruled by a brotherhood of elders who cling to the shattered remnants of the Christian faith.
A priest, favoured of the sect, begins to suffer nightmarish visions as evil turns its intent on the last bastion of mankind still to fall by its hand. Overcome, and subsequently possessed, the holy man becomes the vessel through which dark forces infiltrate the colony and lay low the last of men with a crushing malediction which will claim their souls, their homeworld and ultimately their Godhead for all time.
Rich in descriptive content and paced throughout with a growing sense of doom, The Jesus Man delivers an unsurpassed vision of Hell on Earth.
