Description


An unbreakable cipher, a dead priest with expensive shoes, a hermit who has conversations with saints, an angry French girl, a guardian angel with attitude, a murderous master criminal, and a gaggle of angry demons might stop an ordinary fifteen-year-old safe-cracking genius, but not Percy St.-John.  He’s out to prove he did not steal a mysterious ancient book that may hold the key to mankind’s greatest hope and greatest danger.


 


E.A. Allen is a History Professor, cattle farmer, and retired C.I.A. intelligence officer. When he’s not out chasing straying cows that have no respect for fences, or tracking-down undergraduates who have no respect for assignment deadlines, he’s at his desk, writing mysteries in the great tradition of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie, and Dorothy L. Sayers.

Praise For…


“Allen marries the character relationship of a young Holmes and Watson with a setting reminiscent of Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose, resulting in a delicious change of pace for YA readers. Especially effective is the rich atmosphere evoking the early 1900s as a time when superstition was giving way to a more rational age. Literary thrillers are rare in the YA space, and this charming page-turner is a welcome addition to the scene.” —Reinhardt Suarez, Booklist
