This is one of those books that you’re disappointed when it ends, and you find yourself wishing there were just a few more chapters before you have to bid adieu to these colorful characters and their nifty, futuristic gadgets… And then you remember there are more books on the way in this series, and you can’t wait to dive back into their world for the next adventure!! – Amazon Review
Thomas Davies is a bachelor working in the rare book business from his comfortable London flat. When a consulting opportunity at the British Museum goes horribly wrong – ending in bloodshed and a cover-up – he is suddenly thrust into the services of the terrifying, yet fascinating, Karl Lark.
Unsure if he’s been rescued or kidnapped, the only thing Davies knows for certain is that the single alternative to declining Lark’s offer is an unpleasant demise, and that death at the hands of Lark may be the least of his worries.
The enigmatic Lark and his mysterious organization are apparently beholden to no one. Operating in the shadows, with seemingly limitless means and technologies that should not exist. Davies soon learns that the world holds more secrets than he ever thought possible. And embarking on a daring, globetrotting mission to rescue a figure of legend, the unspeakable evil that opposes them is far greater – and far more ancient – than anything he ever imagined…
Be sure to check out all the books in the Kark Lark Chronicles series.
