Overview

Private investigator Jake Helman has battled a demon, his minions, the walking dead, and beings from the dimensions of the Sphere of Light and the Dark Realm, but now he faces the greatest evil the world has ever known in the third installment of this loosely knit trilogy. Jake is hired by the wife of New York City mayor Myron Madigan to prove his infidelity. Meanwhile, the ex-girlfriend of his old partner Edgar needs Jake’s help when her son joins a cult that worships space aliens. And Jake’s late wife, Sheryl, now an “agent of Light,” asks him to locate a monster called the Destroyer of Souls—who may be responsible for the disappearance of the Biblical entity known as Abel. The investigation of Madigan leads to Karlin Reichard, a wealthy industrialist and political kingmaker—head of a cabal that has secretly manipulated world affairs for generations. In order to bring these men down, Jake must join them. With earthly and otherworldly forces marshaled against him, Jake battles human assassins and supernatural creatures in his quest to uncover the mystery behind the Order of Avademe and a monster willing to destroy heaven and hell to rule the earth.

Editorial Reviews

Barry Hunter
I'm reminded of the tales of The Shadow, Doc Savage, Manly Wade Wellman, H.P. Lovecraft, and other pulp stories. The creativity and pacing make this a very enjoyable and fast-moving novel.

Lamberson knows exactly what he's doing and creates a different, more emotionally charged, and thematically huge story with every subsequent release.

The Jake Helman Files continue to be a magnificent addition to the ranks of occult detectives, with Jake Helman's glass eye deserving a place of honor next to Carl Kolchak's seersucker suit and Teddy London's .45 (Betty) and knife (Veronica). I'd call this series an absolute must read for any horror or hard-boiled detective fan, because Greg Lamberson delivers the goods and does so in spades.

The Jake Helman Files: Cosmic Forces is must-read horror at its finest.
Library Journal
Policeman-turned-private investigator Jake Helman goes against his usual policy of avoiding spousal cases to help out the former beauty queen wife of Myron Madigan, the corrupt mayor of New York City. At the same time, as a favor to the wife of a missing former partner, Helman investigates a suspicious cult known as the Dreamers. His trails lead him to a cabal of powerful men who manipulate world affairs—and an encounter with a monster known as the Destroyer of Souls. In between, he must deal with a rebellious teenager, the spirit of his late wife, and his partner, Edgar, now transformed into a raven. This third series installment (Personal Demons; Desperate Souls) pits Helman against both supernatural and criminal adversaries, whom he faces with a tough-as-nails attitude that barely disguises his inner compassion for the victims of the world. VERDICT Two-time Bram Stoker nominee Lamberson has created a hard-boiled hero, gifted with a big heart and sent on intriguingly horrific adventures, who is reminiscent of Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden and Glen Cook's Garrett, P.I.

    The third Helman hard-boiled urban fantasy horror tale is an exciting entry

    Private investigator Jake Helman has successfully fought against the darkest Cosmic Forces. Mrs. White better known as Marla Madigon wife of the corrupt New York City mayor, wants to hire him to prove her spouse Myron is cheating on her. His NYPD time tells him to stay out of a domestic dispute, but she tosses the kids card at the softy and besides her spouse is a vindictive vicious piece of trash so he accepts the case. That inquiry leads to influential Karlin Reichard.

    Joyce the girlfriend of his former partner Edgar the Raven asks Helman to speak with her angry teenage son Martin. He follows a raging Martin to the Dreamers Castle. Helman investigates the Dreamers only to find the trail leads to abuses of power. Meanwhile his late wife Sheryl Agent of the Sphere of Light asks Helman to do her a favor. She wants him to locate the Destroyer of Souls who may be involved in her missing boyfriend Abel of bible fame.

    The third Helman hard-boiled urban fantasy horror tale (see Personal Demons and Desperate Souls) is an exciting entry as the tough sleuth with a heart fights monsters from the otherworld and from this plane. Readers will enjoy his three investigative cases as all roads lead to those who abuse power whether they are from hell, earth or otherwise. With a nod to Dresden, readers will appreciate the case load of kick butt softy Jake Helman.
