ANOTHER ED CLINE MASTERPIECE!

Ed Cline is a master at creating sophisticated intellectual mysteries with memorable characters, strong plots, plenty of action, and satisfying climaxes. In this novel, set in Roaring Twenties San Francisco and partly modeled after "The Maltese Falcon," tough, opinionated sleuth Cyrus Skeen tries to uncover a fabled historical relic from Medieval England while at the same time solving a modern literary mystery, taking on a whole gallery of opponents, from a crooked cop and a mysterious Frenchwoman to a maniacal killer.

What dazzles the reader, in the end, is not just the plot twists, but the boldly American spirit embodied in all the author's works: freedom-worshiping, ambitious, confident, literate, benevolent, and individualistic.

Readers should not miss Ed's magnum opus, the six-volume "Sparrowhawk" series, about the kind of free-thinking heroes who created the American Revolution; "We Three Kings," a no-holds-barred fight between an American entrepreneur and a murderous Arab diplomat; and the Chess Hanrahan detective series ("First Prize," "Presence of Mind," and soon-to-be-released "Honors Due")!

The second book in the Cyrus Skeen series, "Head of Athena," is now available.
