and the author that is writing their story!
Leah Tallent and Gareth Lowery have seen it all, utilizing everything they have to survive. But now, Leah’s father has gone missing and they have only seven days before he’ll be killed. The only clue to follow is a picture of one of the most famous icons of all time, and a strange map hidden in her father’s desk. This new mystery will take them from the pinnacle of the Acropolis to the depths of Cleopatra’s caves in order to unmask the man who has a score to settle.
In a location that’s been buried under rock for centuries the battle will begin, and the team will have to face the one foe that will expose secrets and unleash unheard of power in order to get what he wants. ‘The Hero’s Companion’—the one woman who will do anything to make sure the right side wins, will fight the good fight; but without Gareth, her time may just run out.
After going up against a man who believed he was the Devil, himself, the beloved characters of Leah Tallent and Gareth Lowery are exhausted. But a terrifying journey awaits…
When Leah arrives home her sarcasm burns even brighter, but a frightening call from Gareth’s sister changes the course of their holiday event. A new puzzle from the past has come to life, and involves a world of liars, killers and greed.
The heart-stopping suspense takes them from Coptic Cairo to the magical world of Petra in search of a cave that once housed a true ‘Illuminator’. They must find the answers to one of the biggest mysteries while staying one step ahead of villains who are determined to make sure that, this time, Tallent & Lowery do not survive.
In 1902, thirteen people came together to continue a tradition that’d been set in stone thousands of years before.
In 2012, Leah Tallent, Head of Research at the New York Public Library, is about to unearth the secrets left behind by this crew by joining a crazy man on a fanatical quest. Gareth Lowery has spent his life searching for the ultimate artifact; twelve keys hidden by men whose job it was to protect the single biggest secret ever kept.
The fantastic duo is soon immersed in a whirlwind treasure hunt with historical and passionate repercussions. From the eerie Winchester House to the darkness of Loch Ness, they quickly learn that the theory of duality is correct: For every bad there is a good and, for Heaven, there most assuredly exists…Hell.
Tallent & Lowery Book #4: The Charlatan’s Crown
From defeating the worst of mankind to solving puzzles that have eluded others for centuries, Leah Tallent and Gareth Lowery must now follow a new trail to stop a madman from resurrecting a mighty Reich.
Although dead men supposedly tell no tales, the duo continue to follow clues left behind by true powerbrokers from Hell, and now they stand on the precipice of an infamous castle used by those who thrived on hate and terror.
Fighting for their lives from deep inside a labyrinth, they’ll stand atop a stage where an angel of death spoke to the masses, and climb to an ‘Eagle’s Nest’ to come face-to-face with a new enigma; a master puppeteer who’s pulling the strings on a monumental scheme they never saw coming.
Gareth Lowery smiled wide, making his emerald eyes glow in the matching room. He stared at Leah Tallent, sitting in her chair straight and tall, yet looking like she wanted to be anywhere but where she was. His beloved librarian was beyond private and had absolutely no interest in being interviewed.
“You look like you’ve seen a ghost…again.” His heart skipped a beat as he looked behind him quickly, wondering if their nemesis could’ve snuck up behind him.
Leah laughed. “Not today. So far Hitler, Crowley, Rasputin, Jack the Ripper – they’ve stayed away.” Her voice turned into a mumble, “Although I think I’d rather face the Devil, himself, than do this.”
“It’s just an interview.“
“And I take freedom of speech seriously,” Leah reminded him.
“This is true.” Taking a worried breath, he moved elegantly across the frayed carpet that looked like every actor, personality, and politician had once basked in the horrific fluorescent lighting above that seemed to turn every face into a creature from ‘The Walking Dead.’
“Maybe we should practice together before going out there,” he suggested. “You know…curb that sarcasm of yours a bit before revealing it on T.V.”
Leah waved her hand in the air. “Don’t worry. In a world of ‘Real Housewives’ and ‘Duck Dynasty’ there isn’t much I’m going to say that should shock people.”
Sitting across from her, Gareth leaned forward over the coffee table that’d seen better days, and stared into the sapphire eyes that he now knew he could never live without. “Let’s practice anyway, love.”
