Book 1: The Empress Holds the Key: A historical mystery thriller
Journalist Jack Rogan knows a great story when he finds one. A charred old photograph found in the ruins of a burnt-out Blue Mountains cottage hints at dark secrets and unwittingly reignites an ancient and deadly quest for a holy relic mysteriously erased from the pages of history.
Federal Police officer Jana Gonski in pursuit of a suspected Nazi war criminal joins forces with Rogan, barrister and amateur archaeologist Marcus Carrington QC, and celebrated composer Benjamin Krakowski. Together they uncover a murky web of intrigue and greed, hoards of Nazi gold and hidden Swiss bank accounts. All implicate wealthy banker Sir Eric Newman. When Newman goes on trial, unexpected clues are discovered pointing the way to a mystery that has haunted the Catholic Church for centuries.
On a dangerous journey to find the relic, Rogan and his companions trace links back as far as the reign of Akhenaten, the heretic pharaoh of ancient Egypt, and King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. What is this dark secret guarded by the Knights Templar, and so feared by the Vatican? Will religious fanatics foil the quest which could destroy the very foundations of their Church and challenge Christianity itself?
Book 2: The Disappearance of Anna Popov: A psychological thriller
Celebrated author and journalist Jack Rogan cannot resist a challenge. When he stumbles across a mysterious clue pointing to the tragic disappearance of two girls from Alice Springs, Rogan decides to investigate.
Joining forces with Rebecca Armstrong, his New York literary agent, Andrew Simpson, a retired Aboriginal police officer and Cassandra, an enigmatic psychic, Rogan soon enters the alien upside-down-world of an outlaw bikie gang ruled by an evil master where outcasts of society are the heroes, and cruelty and violence admired and rewarded.
Irresistibly drawn into a web of superstition and fear, Rogan and his friends soon pass the point of no return, and follow the trail of the missing girls into the remote Dreamtime-wilderness of outback Australia.
Unbeknown to the others, Cassandra has a secret agenda of her own. Using her occult powers to avenge a terrible wrong, she sets the scene for an epic showdown where the stakes are high and the looser faces death and oblivion.
Will Rogan succeed, or will the forces of evil crush the hopes and dreams of a desperate mother praying for the return of her lost daughter?
