Professor Piers Knight, New York City’s own Indiana Jones, must battle dark powers to save our world

Professor Piers Knight, an esteemed curator at the Brooklyn Museum, is regarded by many on the staff as a revered institution of his own, if not an outright curiosity. Knight’s portfolio includes lost civilizations; arcane cultures, languages, and belief; and more than a little bit of the history of magic and mysticism. His colleagues don’t know that, in addition to being a scholar of all things ancient, he is schooled in the uses of magical artifacts, the teachings of forgotten deities, and the threats of unseen dangers.

If a mysterious object surfaces, Professor Knight makes it his job to figure it out — and make sure it stays out of dangerous hands.

A researcher on an expedition in the Middle East calls Knight’s attention to just such an object in the collection of the Brooklyn Museum — before it becomes the target of a sorcerous attack that leads to a siege on a local precinct house by a fire elemental.

What looks like an ordinary inscribed stone may unlock an otherworldly Armageddon that certain dark powers are all too eager to bring about — and only Piers Knight stands in their way.
