Mr. Swain is a magician as well as the author of fourteen thrillers.
Every night Peter Warlock entertains with magic tricks, but his day job is just a cover for his work with a group of psychics that read the future to prevent crime. Not even his live-in girlfriend knows the truth. But an evil bunch of psychics, the Order of Astrum, wants to eliminate them forever as well as the traditional world destruction.
Lots of action, magic, and the supernatural. It is a thriller that you will enjoy with a well-written world, vulnerable characters, and peril to be dealt with. Swain has won a number of awards in crime writing and thrillers, so enjoy. ~~ Vickie Edwards
