A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away ... uh, no that's STAR WARS.
Actually it was in junior high when I discovered BEAU GESTE in the school library.
My four buddies looked at me as if I were nuts when I laid the phonebook-sized tome on the study hall table we shared.
Then, I told them of the desert mystery of a fort defended by dead men, a stolen jewel, and ...
My friends were hooked.
From that incident sprang our weekend overnight stay-over's
where we watched old movies and were read pulp fiction by my mother (Sherlock Holmes, Fu Manchu, Doc Savage, etc.)
And so the League of Five was born.
I offer you a chance to join my League of Night ...
It's a noir detective story starring fallen angels, the heavenly choir, nightclub stigmatics,
a priest with a dirty secret, a femme fatale, and the Voice of God.
Somebody has murdered the angel Gabriel.
Worse, the Jericho Trumpet has gone missing, putting Heaven on the brink of a truly cosmic crisis.
Who is Ian Tregillis?

Kirkus Reviews picked it as one of the best Sci Fi books of 2013, saying:
"Superlatives seem superfluous. Instead...wow. Just-wow."
