Dark Sky Publisher's Summary

First Lieutenant Robert Davidson. The son of an American military legend and a war hero who died in combat during the Afghanistan conflict.

Or did he?

The answer could bring down a secret military empire - as well as a guy named Max Bowman.

Max is a rude, crude and rapidly aging ex-CIA desk jockey who gets the job of tracking down the truth about Davidson - but his chances of actually discovering it are about half of that of finding a horse wearing a kimono. What Max doesn't know is that nobody wants the facts - and nobody expects Max to find them.

But Max has to pay the rent. So he takes on the job, which takes him on a road trip into the heart of America's darkness as well as his own, where he has to deal with exploding homes, brutal murders, a sexy heiress, a misguided teenager and Max's girlfriend back home, who's cursing him out on a regular basis.

And, oh yeah, a para-military organization that's just waiting for the right moment to kill him.

It all happens in Dark Sky, a sardonic and suspenseful mystery-thriller in which an underwhelming hero must confront an overwhelming conspiracy - not to mention himself.

This is the first book in the Max Bowman series.

Now he's got to contend with zombies on the Upper East Side, a cult run by a clueless pawn, a hipster rapist who knows her way around a sword, a secret CIA spook program left over from the Cold War, and powerful old enemies who are out to destroy him - all while trying to keep his mind from crashing and burning for good.

    Max Bowman has female problems. Specifically, three beautiful, rich daughters of three powerful and influential men - all of them with their own secret agendas. Unfortunately, Max doesn't know which one to trust or which way to turn, because a vicious killer is hot on his heels. And the most perplexing thing about this psychopath is that he isn't after Max himself - but everyone he knows and loves.
