Overview

Jack's back! And this time he must face a terrifying supernatural threat from Europe's recent past.

Someone has been mad enough to revive the most terrifying evil of the last 60 years. And only one man is bad enough to stop them.

Eagle Rising takes Jack to the rotten heart of big business and the dark secrets of a neo-nazi magical sect intent on giving the world back to a terror from the darkest days of the 1940s. Jack must infiltrate the closed corridors of big business and reach the core of a conspiracy among some of the most high-powered city executives in the country. A cabal of business men with occult interests and an insane hunger for the return of an old and dark order.

Described as a mix of Dennis Wheatley and Ian Fleming Devereux lives up to the billing with his new novel.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Devereux’s quirky blend of horror and deadpan humor bristles with pop culture references, giving Tarantino-style profanity and gore a twist of Robert Rankin tomfoolery and Ian Fleming derring-do."  —Publishers Weekly

"This book is tremendous fun."  —Booklist

"While America employs the services of cute blonde teenagers to fight demons; the British way is uglier and more brutal but makes for an absolutely cracking read!"  —SFX

Publishers Weekly

Jaunty magician Jack, agent in the U.K.'s occult secret service, goes undercover in the witty sequel to 2008's Hunter's Moon. His goal is to crush the Eagle Society, neo-Nazis intent on busting Hitler out of hell and into a handsome new Aryan body. Jack assumes the role of successful banker John Dennis and grapples with Eagle Society members like "lunatic" Sir James Gold as well as annoying MI5 mole Miss Penny Marsh, herself undercover as cultist Alexandra Gentle. Amiable Jack despises some of the violent chores he must undertake in the fight against the forces of darkness, but he soldiers on bravely. Devereux's quirky blend of horror and deadpan humor bristles with pop culture references, giving Tarantino-style profanity and gore a twist of Robert Rankin tomfoolery and Ian Fleming derring-do. (Sept.)
