Detailed book overview

Boston Law

Unlawful Deeds

Bruce Arrujo, professional art thief. Bruce Arrujo, Attorney-at-Law, recently hired by Boston's most prestigious law firm.

The reason for his career change? Boston's red-hot real estate market has suddenly crashed, and Bruce figures that some of his new firm's institutional clients won't notice if a couple of million dollars is siphoned away during the resulting chaos.

But the police definitely notice when a local art museum is robbed of $100 million in art. And they definitely notice when a transvestite prostitute is found strangled in a Back Bay alley.

Is Bruce behind one or both of these crimes? Or has he, instead, become the unwitting puppet of an unseen adversary? And when a stunning young Harvard Law School student gets dragged into the mess, will Bruce betray his love for her in order to ensure his own fortune?

At stake? Millions of dollars. A lifetime in jail. The love of his life.

The Wrong Abraham

Shelby Baskin has it all—a successful law practice, a condo in the Back Bay, a fiancé who adores her. Then she receives a baffling letter from her rich Uncle Abraham, a Holocaust survivor: Only she, he mysteriously proclaims, can prevent a major terrorist attack on Boston.

Working with Homeland Security, Shelby and her fiancé, Bruce Arrujo, race through the streets of Boston, first attempting to stop a Hiroshima-sized Liquified Natural Gas tanker explosion in Boston Harbor, then fighting to prevent a deadly release of anthrax powder at Fenway Park. Yet the terrorists always seem to be one step ahead of them.

Through it all, a question haunts Shelby: Why does Uncle Abraham always seem to be one step ahead of the terrorists?

Thief on the Cross

Why would a collector of ancient American artifacts hand over his prized pieces to a historian and then shoot himself in the head? And why does an ancient Templar scroll in his possession refer to Jesus as “The Thief on the Cross?”

The answers place historian Cameron Thorne at the dangerous intersection of secret American history and modern geopolitical intrigue. Following clues contained in ancient American artifacts and medieval European masterpieces, Cameron and his fiancée Amanda Spencer race to uncover the true secrets of early Christianity before a splinter group of religious zealots can silence them forever.

Powdered Gold

Cameron Thorne and his fiancée Amanda Spencer don’t for a second believe the Ark of the Covenant is hidden in a cave in the Arizona desert. But when a militant survivalist leads them to a radioactive replica of the Ark, filled with a mysterious white powder, they begin to wonder if legends of Templar Knights visiting the American Southwest on a secret mission might be true. What is this strange white powder? And is it the key to understanding the true power of both Moses and the sacred Ark of the Covenant?

The Oath of Nimrod

A mysterious race of North American giants.

An ancient Hebrew inscription in a Cherokee burial mound.

A blood oath made by blindfolded Freemasons.

Are these three historical oddities the reason the CIA is trying to brainwash historian Cameron Thorne and his fiancée Amanda Spencer-Gunn? The answer lies buried in the legends of the Knights Templar, within the rituals of the secretive Freemasons and, most significantly of all, inside the bowels of the Smithsonian Institution. The problem for Cam and Amanda? If they go rummaging around the Smithsonian, they may find themselves buried alongside the ancient giants.

The Isaac Question

While rooting around in the mysterious stone chambers of New England, historian Cameron Thorne and his fiancée Amanda Spencer-Gunn stumble upon a reinterpretation of the Biblical passage calling on Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac. It is a revelation—long suppressed by the medieval Knights Templar—that threatens to destabilize the Middle East forever. It is also a secret Cam and Amanda want nothing to do with.

Not that a rogue faction of puppeteering Freemasons gives a damn what Cam and Amanda want.

Echoes of Atlantis

Evidence of the lost continent of Atlantis exists throughout the modern world. As do powerful groups who do not want Atlantis—and its secrets—to be rediscovered.

Historians Cameron Thorne and Amanda Gunn stumble upon a mysterious spiral necklace and a 12,000-year-old human skull, sparking their search for Atlantis and its true legacy. But are modern-day Knights Templar and a cabal of goddess worshipers conspiring against them? Only after a whirlwind of international travel and a violent encounter with a shadowy paramilitary group do the mysteries of Atlantis finally reveal themselves.

The Cult of Venus

Historians Cameron Thorne and Amanda Spencer-Gunn discover a 14th-century journal which confirms a long-rumored historical heresy: The medieval Church outlawed the Knights Templar because the warrior monks were secretly worshiping the ancient Goddess. The journal also sucks Cam and Amanda into the orbit of a ruthless cabal of modern-day pagans intent on pushing America into the loving arms of the Goddess—whether America wants succor there or not.

The Swagger Sword

Fact: In the 1980s, a Vatican archbishop and rogue group of Freemasons were implicated in the murder of Pope John Paul I. A decade later, that same cleric illicitly acquired an ancient Templar scroll directly undermining fundamental Church teachings.

Today, historians Cameron Thorne and Amanda Spencer-Gunn stumble upon a sword engraved with a map leading to this hidden scroll. A pope was murdered the first time to keep the scroll a secret. Can Cam and Amanda escape a similar fate?

Treasure Templari

Historians Cameron Thorne and Amanda Spencer-Gunn uncover a stolen painting which the Nazis believed was a secret map to the Holy Grail and the lost treasure of the Knights Templar. Hitler planned to weaponize the Holy Grail and monetize the treasure as part of his campaign of world dominance. 

Cam and Amanda just want to find the legendary artifacts. The Nazis failed because they were unable to decipher the secret Templar clues left in the painting. Cam and Amanda may fail—perhaps fatally—because a group of modern-day Nazis remain obsessed with finishing Hitler’s work.

Watchtower of Turtle Island

Religious fanatics inform historians Cameron Thorne and Amanda Spencer-Gunn that a medieval stone tower in Newport, RI is a secret portal--built by the Knights Templar and their Native American allies--through which the Antichrist will appear. It all seems utterly ridiculous, until their teenage daughter Astarte is kidnapped and dragged into a vile sex magic ritual designed to bring about the Apocalypse.

Romerica

A dying millionaire hires historian Cameron Thorne to help raise what he claims is a Roman-era ship wrecked off the coast of Massachusetts’ Plum Island. Roman coins and artifacts scattered around New England and the Ohio River Valley appear to confirm legends of early Romans crossing the Atlantic. It seems like a harmless assignment until a sultry Mossad agent threatens Cam’s life. Why would the Mossad care about ancient Roman artifacts? The answer, it turns out, could destabilize the Middle East for generations to come.

The Pillars of Enoch

An elderly recluse informs historian Cameron Thorne that he has discovered the secret at the core of Freemasonry. The next day, he is killed. Thorne quickly focuses on a mysterious stone tablet, given to Moses by God along with the Ten Commandments, purportedly passed down to the Freemasons by the medieval Knights Templar. When a sultry Mossad agent joins the search—claiming that the tablet contains ancient scientific equations and formulas lost to mankind—Thorne becomes certain of one thing: He needs to locate the tablet before he becomes its second victim.

Sheba's Revenge

Legends surrounding the Queen of Sheba shockingly reveal that the ancient city of Jerusalem was located in Arabia, not Israel, calling into question the Jewish people’s claim to the Holy Land. Historian Cameron Thorne, teamed with exotic Mossad agent Rivka Rogel, scrambles to prevent this revelation from sparking a deadly conflagration in the Middle East. Little do they expect that their efforts will lead them to Nova Scotia’s Oak Island and the long-lost treasure of the Knights Templar. Or that it all might be part of a larger scheme, the two of them pawns in a perverse, life-or-death subterfuge.
