The Spook and the Spirit in the Stone

Sophie Crispianou is kidnapped on the backwater colony world, Siobhos. Bad enough, but Sophie is the daughter of Earth’s ambassador and the step-niece of Earth’s President. The kidnapper has struck before, leaving his victims dead.

Finding the child falls to Detective Inspector A Afton Lamont of the Prosperity City Police Department, and her new partner, Jerome. The Earth authorities don’t trust the local police to solve such a high-profile case and send in an agent with psionic abilities – a spook. There’s little evidence to work with and no useful witnesses. Can this unlikely team find Sophie and save her before tragedy strikes?

Deep in the caves on the edge of the city something lurks, something old, supernatural and evil. Is it linked to Sophie’s disappearance? Jerome crosses its path, in an attempt to rescue Sophie. Can he defeat the Spirit in the Stone?

An SF/detective novella, first in a series about Afton and Jerome, available on Kindle from Amazon UK and US
