Deep in the heart of Chicago, homeless people are being murdered by something out of a nightmare. Special FBI Agent Chris Blood and his team have been drawn into a web of treachery that reaches the White House. Every day is a struggle. The investigation leads him to Judge Paul Smith, a non-human creature called the Companion, and his mate, She-sha. They lead a criminal enterprise, called The Circle, and are in possession of a clock, won at an auction, that has unlimited power. As a highly skilled musician and martial artist, Blood is still haunted by the murder of his wife, Mary.

The Auction will resonate with anyone who has been touched by the loss of someone they love, and will be purchased by fans of thrillers, suspense, and mystery. Written in the third person omniscient at 80,723 words, it is an upmarket thriller with supernatural elements. Women and children have strong roles.

Fans of Dean Koontz, and Harlan Coben, will be drawn to the book, as it explores the nature of evil. The supernatural elements add an extra dimension. The common thread that runs between those authors and The Auction is that evil exists; however, it is sometimes disguised.

Just a tease from my new Novel.

Mr. Murphy woke up with a plaintive cry and reached out a paw to The Guardian. Picking him up, the old man whispered softly to the black and white cat as he held him close. "There will come a time when you will need to be more than what you are." Only Mr. Murphy heard the words and they were filled with power and wonder.
