Angel City

by Jon Steele

Angel City Synopsis

Jay Harper, one of the last 'angels' on Planet Earth, is hunting down the half-breeds and goons who infected Paradise with evil. Intercepting a plot to turn half of Paris into a dead zone, Harper ends up on the wrong side of the law and finds himself a wanted man. That doesn't stop his commander, Inspector Gobet of the Swiss Police, from sending him back to Paris on a recon mission... a mission that uncovers a truth buried in the Book of Enoch. Katherine Taylor and her two year old son Max are living in a small town in the American Northwest. It's a quiet life. She runs a candle shop and spends her afternoons drinking herbal teas, imagining a crooked little man in the belfry of Lausanne Cathedral, a man who believed Lausanne was a hideout for lost angels. And there was someone else, someone she can't quite remember...as if he was there, and not there at the same time. A man with a disfigured face emerges from the shadows. His name is Astruc, he's obsessed with the immortal souls of men. Like a voice crying in the wilderness, he warns the time of The Prophecy is at hand...a prophecy that calls for the sacrifice of the child born of light...

Angel City Press Reviews

The Watchers and now Angel City ... read like Paradise Lost redrafted by Raymond Chandler in a fevered dream, in which the demonic hordes are desperate to secure nuclear weaponry and the angels have the kind of firepower that Milton couldn't have conjured up in his worst nightmares. It's the old tale of good versus evil rewritten as a compelling modern fable. * Irish Times *
