In The Six Messiahs, Mark Frost again creates a novel of nineteenth-century mystery, adventure, and terror with Arthur Conan Doyle--the creator of the Sherlock Holmes books--at the center of the heart-stopping action. But The Six Messiahs is not a sequel; it is a spectacularly imagined novel that stands entirely on its own. Ten years have passed since Doyle first met the brilliant Jack Sparks and together they cracked the deadly case of The List of 7. Inspired by his friend, Doyle went on to create Sherlock Holmes, the character that has since made him a wealthy and celebrated man. Now off to America for his first book tour, Doyle is joined by his impetuous younger brother, Innes, and a cryptic Irish priest. During their voyage across the Atlantic, the men are stalked by an otherworldly order of assassins attempting to steal a precious piece of the ship's cargo: a priceless book of ancient mysticism. The Book of Zohar is the first piece of a lethal puzzle that will draw Doyle across the burgeoning young nation. From the filthy slums of lower Manhattan to the dark alleys of Chicago to a final apocalyptic confrontation in the searing Arizona desert, Doyle and his companions track the paths of six mysterious strangers who are united by a single, eerie dream. A dream of a black tower rising out of a wasteland--and a river of blood. As their trails converge at the source of this terrifying vision, Doyle and company confront an evil so dark and profound that it threatens to obliterate the very fabric of the world. Mark Frost has created a remarkable entertainment, a thriller teeming with details of American life at the turn of the century. There are twists and turns, mysteries to solve, page-turning frights, laughs, fascinating insights into the issues of the day, a cast of fantastically vivid characters--and a pulse-pounding story that will keep readers mesmerized until they reach the horrific and shattering conclusion.

Lee Donne's family is gifted. Her mother has three doctorates, her father is an economics genius, and her grandfather is a world-renowned Shakespearean scholar. Lee's own gift, if you could call it that, is an eidetic memory that seems to maintain a visual representation of everything she's ever seen. For the most part, this gift is useless; it certainly hasn't helped Lee in college, where she's just spent four years drifting from major to major, with no degree in sight. Without a job or prospects, Lee is relieved to be house-sitting her grandfather's isolated Oregon home. But her stay soon becomes a nightmare when she is tormented by strange and menacing noises at night. Emboldened by a visit from her friend Casey, Lee finds that the source of these haunting sounds is an all-too human force--a young and well-respected man. He knew that Lee's grandfather would be away, but what could he have been looking for? The search for answers takes Lee from the Pacific Northwest to the streets of New Orleans. Using her strange gift as she probes into her family's past, Lee uncovers secrets more far-reaching and sinister than she ever could imagine.

A serial killer stalks the streets of Spokane, acting out a misogynist script from the dark heart of this culture. Across town, a writer named Derrick has spent his life tracking the reasons--political, psychological, spiritual--for the sadism of modern civilization. And through the grim nights, Nika, a trafficked woman, tries to survive the grinding violence of prostitution. Their lives, and the forces propelling them, are about to collide Derrick's current project is a book called Possession, which asks the ontological question of who is responsible for the culture of domination that's destroying the earth. Who actually benefits from a dead planet, the endgame that's fast approaching? What if the answer is something way bigger than humans? Meanwhile, with motivations opposite to Derrick's, the serial killer is asking much the same question of the women he kidnaps as his final act of possession--and Nika is next. Derrick's metaphysical explorations suddenly take on more urgency as visions both terrifying and sacred begin to intrude, and past and future collapse without warning. All Derrick knows is Nika's name and her impending death. The only person who believes him is his partner Allison, a woman with both strengths and scars, whose past has led her to a commitment to justice no matter what the cost. As the visions intensify and the killer draws nearer, Derrick and Allison are compelled to act, making themselves the next targets. Derrick must learn to negotiate a world of spirits and demons, living and dead, before it's too late. And what hangs in the balance is not just their lives, but also the fate of life on earth. With Songs of the Dead, Derrick Jensen has written more than a thriller. This is a story lush with rage and tenderness on its way to being a weapon.
