An explosive new Max August magickal thriller from one of the great comics masters
Legendary comics writer Steve Englehart returns to the adventures of Max August in the fourth novel in his fantasy thriller series.
Max August was once a regular guy, before he learned the ways of magick and immortality and became a staunch crusader against the supernatural forces of evil. Though immune to the effects of time, Max is not indestructible, and now he must face the vast, worldwide conspiracy known as the Necklace.
Max has only a few allies in this fight among them: Pam, an apprentice in the alchemical arts, and Vee, a chanteuse with an uncanny knack for all things magick. But the Necklace is plotting a massive catastrophe fueled by the magical power of a demonic entity; using Black Ops helicopters to massacre tens of thousands of spectators in a domed stadium, re-awakening terrorist fears and destabilizing the U.S. government. Max will need all his magick, and all the help he can get, for him to have any chance to thwart the attack and survive to fight another day.
Steve Englehart is best known writing for such series as Captain America (for Marvel), Batman: The Dark Detective and The Justice League of America (for DC), and for his novel The Point Man, the first Max August novel. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
