SAN FRANCISCO, August 19, 2013 – JournalStone Publishing (JSP) President, Christopher C.

The novel is set to be published August, 2014
About the novel: In the summer of 2014, be prepared for the mystery of the Century. Five award-winning authors take you through an epic span of supernatural noir, a full hundred years of webbed conspiracy, from the tenement slums of turn-of-the-century New York, to the dawn of talking celluloid in Hollywood, through the hard-boiled streets of Houston in the age of Sputnik, past a seemingly lone act of history-changing violence during the Reagan Administration, all the way to the here and now of today and the inner workings of the powerful machinery at the end of every string. One novel. Five authors. Five eras. One… CENTURY.
About the Authors: David Liss is the author six novels, most recently The Devil’s Company. He is the bestselling author of five previous novels: A Conspiracy of Paper, winner of the 2000 Edgar Award for Best First Novel, The Coffee Trader, A Spectacle of Corruption, The Ethical Assassin and The Whiskey Rebels.
