Eleven years ago, the most lethal terrorist the world has ever seen was apprehended after a four-day rampage that left more than a million dead worldwide. Eight-year-old Jessie Von Cosel, half of the deadly cybernetic entity known as LITTLE PRECIOUS, was tried, convicted and sent to the refurbished detention facility on Alcatraz Island, where she is the only prisoner. The other half of the persona, an unimaginably advanced robot, was never found. Jessie lapsed into a near-catatonic state until...
Today, Jessie Von Cosel has emerged from her decade-long torpor and is showing alarming signs that the Little Precious persona is coming back online. The authorities summon Dana Unknown, better known as Doctor Unknown Junior, and her obstreperous partner, former superhero kid sidekick Jack Christian, to take action-- but it may already be too late. Dana and Jack plunge into a toxic stew of murder, dark secrets, government cover-ups and black magic, with the help of an unlikely band of allies: Vionna Valis; the Black Centipede; a conspiracy-busting journalist named Garrison "Grassy" Knowles; Dana's father, the reclusive Doctor Unknown Senior; and a certain twice-deceased former Napoleon of Crime.
Can our heroes unravel the horrific plans of the Cult of the White Centipede in time to prevent THE RETURN OF LITTLE PRECIOUS? Find out in Book Three of Chuck Miller’s MORIARTY, LORD OF THE VAMPIRES Trilogy! From Pro Se Productions.
