Overview

Two years ago, a woman is murdered in cold blood. Now a son she'd given up for adoption returns to claim his inheritance. To verify his claim, a DNA test is ordered. Except there's one problem.

Her grave is empty.

Spinoza is a private investigator who specializes in finding the missing. He's good at what he does. Damn good. But he's also a recovering alcoholic and a royal mess. Hired to find the missing body, Spinoza will follow a set of clues that leads him to the unthinkable, a world of nightmares and dreamscapes. A world inhabited by the living and the dead.


**Acclaim for the Novels of J.R. Rain**

"Gripping, adventurous, and romantic -- J.R. Rain's The Lost Ark is a breakneck thriller that traces the thread of history from Biblical stories to current-day headlines. Be prepared to lose sleep!"

"I enjoyed this immensely."
--Piers Anthony, New York Times bestselling author of A SPELL FOR CHAMELEON and ON A PALE HORSE

Editorial Reviews

Blurb - Eve Paludan
J.R. Rain does it again in a league of his own as he delivers a fast-paced novella starring a brand-new private detective who specializes in finding missing children. A distraught "grandma" wants Spinoza to find her missing granddaughter, Veronica, who just happens to be a vampire slayer. This time, Rain's private eye goes north to San Francisco and the setting is perfect for this engaging tale. From a goth bar decorated with coffins to the streets of San Francisco, it's a race against time.

    Must read!

    I really enjoyed the Spinoza series. I find that I really like the characters and how they are written. I love the interaction and how the characters from his other series make apperances in this series. JR is a fun author to read and I am having fun with all his books....
