Detailed book overview
The Cyprus Mysteries
All is fair in love and war. Or is it?
For Richard Cole, ex-veteran of the First Gulf War, the memories of conflict have become the nightmares of his reality, and only by confronting them can he begin to live again.
He returns to the Island of Cyprus some twenty years later to where it all began, for a vacation with his wife, Julie. But a chance discovery places him in a dilemma, as he learns that Greek Gods and mortals should never mix.
Now, with Richard powerless to stop the momentum of a phenomenon that tests him to his limits, challenging all that he knows and loves against a fantasy of myth and legend, he must struggle to find the truth between what is real and what is not; but at what cost?
On the island of love, one man’s obsession turns to possession, as his mind, body, and soul are trapped between two worlds and two women.
She’s back and this time she brought a friend…
Still smarting from Richard Cole’s rejection, Aphrodite plans a series of events that will bring about his return to the island. Only this time, his welcome will not be so warm, as he will have to battle bureaucracy and the islanders’ contempt for the devastating aftermath of his chance discovery and his sudden departure. In addition, he confronts his internal demons, and with his return to Cyprus, might completely consume him.
For Aphrodite is set upon a path of cold vengeance and summons the Scylla, a legendary cryptid of the deep, to do her bidding. The creature wreaks havoc on the once idyllic coast of Cape Greco and the tourist resorts of Ayia Napa, Protaras, and Paphos.
Richard must not only face his devils but also the goddess, if he is to stop the terror that now lurks in the Mediterranean’s crystal-clear waters.
But how is he going to do it?
Julie Cole has lost her husband, Richard, but that does not mean she’s about to accept his death. She travels to Cyprus to delve into the mystery and realises Peter, her husband’s wartime buddy, knows more than he’s letting on. And so do others, who may or may not be mythological deities.
Teaming up with Aphrodite, whom she believes is responsible for Richard’s demise, and in a maelstrom of chaos that involves getting the Gorgon’s Blood and fighting fabled creatures, the three travels to the depths of the Underworld on a rescue mission.
Standing in their way is the Lord of the Underworld, Hades and one very determined hunter whose sole task is to destroy Julie.
