A city turned lawless, a sky haunted by drifting, glowing creatures, an alien object blotting out the sun, and only a sixteen-year-old girl to make sense of it all.
Lillia Wilkins is having a pretty normal day, filled with thoughts of school work, boys, and the occasional creepy stalker. Then suddenly the lights go out and she looks up to find a massive object as wide as the city hovering in the sky.

Chaos instantly erupts. People flee the city in droves. Even Lillia's own foster mother abandons her, leaving her all alone to care for the younger children. Luckily she happens upon Sherman, an alcoholic but crafty homeless man who knows how to navigate the chaotic streets of Louisville.
When an intruder burns down the house, Lillia and Sherman must find a safe place to take the children. They need food and clothing. They need a good night's sleep. They need to escape the city, now quarantined by the military.

Most of all, they need to answer the question: "What is the object?"

"The best thing about Pearce's book is how absolutely readable it is." Adam Najberg, Frankfurt

  It launches him on a dangerous quest through Paris and the Loire Valley for the most valuable piece of Nazi loot that remains missing, a famous Raphael self-portrait from the early 16th century, along with the crates of Nazi bullion that accompanied it -- all intended to finance the Fourth Reich.
  Jen Wetzmuller, daughter of his father"s World War II colleague in Army Intelligence, arrives in Paris, bearing a letter she found after he father was run down by a car on the streets of Sarasota. Its clues take Eddie from his Paris home to Florida, where he works to solve the mystery, barely escaping with his life. Then it"s back home to burrow into the darkest reaches of the German occupation in search of the treasure.
  Along the way he and Jen restart the brief, fiercely passionate affair that he abandoned, to his regret, 20 years before Sarasota.
  Most of all, Treasure of Saint-Lazare is a novel about Paris.

A knight. A witch. A Secret.

When Grace, a twenty first century heroine, is accidently transported through a time portal into the clutches of an impoverished medieval knight with one eye on her ransom, we are treated to a brilliant evocation of medieval England which heaves with corruption and intrigue.

The remote and beautiful wilderness of ancient Northumberland rings out with the sound of clashing swords, the hiss of arrows, thundering hooves and the chink of coin bags changing hands in shady deals.

It is all there: a spirited and sensual romance, an action-packed adventure story, hidden treasure, revengeful and devious barons and corpulent and corrupt clergy.

Beset on all sides by danger and deception, with only their wits and a small band of loyal followers to assist them, Grace and Miles of Wildewood find their lives inexplicably entwined as they battle for justice, honour and love.

Although the biblical narrative of Moses is widely known, the story of a pivotal woman in Moses’ life remains a mystery that has both confounded and intrigued for thousands of years. Burning questions abound:

Who was Pharaoh Hatshepsut and how did she rise to such prominence, so much so that a magnificent funeral monument was erected in her honor? Why was it that such a concerted attempt was made to erase all memory of Hatshepsut from the annals of ancient history? How did it come to be that so many inscriptions, depictions, and statues of this captivating figure were so deliberately defaced? Is it possible that she could have been the teenaged daughter of Pharaoh who plucked Moses from the Nile, then raised him as her own? What impact did Hatshepsut have as Moses grew to manhood, married a beautiful black woman, then was forced to flee into exile after learning of his Hebrew roots?

Faithfully weaving the biblical account with little known historical and archaeological details, the author of Abraham and Sarah explores the enduring enigma of Moses and Hatshepsut, rescuing this fascinating woman from the bulrushes of anonym
