Overview
-

An unbreakable cipher, a dead priest with expensive shoes, a hermit who has conversations with saints, an angry French girl, a guardian angel with attitude, a murderous master criminal, and a gaggle of angry demons might stop an ordinary fifteen-year-old safe-cracking genius, but not Percy St.-John. He’s out to prove he did not steal a mysterious ancient book that may hold the key to mankind’s greatest hope and greatest danger.

About The Author
-

E. A. Allen is a History Professor, cattle farmer, and retired CIA intelligence officer. When he’s not out chasing staying cows that have no respect for fences, or tracking-down undergraduates who have no respect for assignment deadlines, he’s at his desk, writing mysteries in the great tradition of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie, and Dorothy L. Sayers.

REVIEWS
-

“Literary thrillers are rare in the YA space, and this charming page-turner is a welcome addition to the scene.” 

- Booklist

“Told in Gabriel’s first-person narration, this short novel is reminiscent of literary classics, with a healthy dose of supernatural elements, endearing characters, and an intriguing, well-devised mystery at its core” 

- Kirkus Reviews
