The Bones of Lazarus follows intersecting lives on the resource-rich, war-torn, Caribbean Island of Saint George. Amidst rising acts of terror and horrific bombings, surfaces a savage killer, a war correspondent whose stories have become oddly prophetic, a Russian operative with a past, and a mysterious political plot. Is it more than a coincidence?

At its epicenter, Captain Daniel Loomis, fighting for his sanity and survival, seeks a connection. Yet, he cannot stop the growing fear that a creature of legend has arrived the immortal Lazarus, brother of Mary Magdalene. Resurrected with a terrifying power, it's claimed he's walked the earth for 2,000 years seeking the hearts and souls of the wicked leaving his mark the face of petrified evil upon his victims.

As political intrigue and conspiracy unravel around him, and with his nation on the brink of all-out civil war, Captain Loomis is charged with finding the killer. But first he must decide whether he pursues a man, a myth, or the original Frankenstein monster in this chilling, imaginative, darkly funny, supernatural thriller.

The Guardian Angel of Death
(As the Bird Flies, Vignettes in the Life of Porter Gibson 'Digit', Part III)

Halloween 1932: At the height of the Great Depression, with Prohibition winding down, Porter Gibson 'Digit' - the famed author, athlete, and inventor of the finger - returns to the Lost Kingdom of Moose Harbor, Maine, to help his childhood friend, Jeffah, make a final run - smuggle one last boat load of liquor into the country. Unbeknownst to Jeffah, Porter's been asked to investigate the deaths of three local smugglers. Unbeknownst to Porter, they worked for Jeffah.

Enchanted by a gypsy woman, Porter finds himself stalked by the Angel of Death, ruthless gangsters, and a mysterious stranger - all the while haunted by a specter and demons from his past. It's a fight for his life, and sanity, in this engrossing, haunting tale of survival and redemption on the Eastern Frontier.
