SON OF PERDITION is the first title in the Chronicle of Brothers epic series, blending urban legend and biblical history. A fast paced thriller with conspiracy theories, international conflicts, natural disasters and terrorism.
It is 2021. Three brothers, each in two worlds. On earth, the heirs to the influential De Vere banking and oil dynasty, rise in the World of Men. Jason, a media tycoon spearheads an international media conglomerate; Adrian, the newly appointed charismatic president of the European Union is a key player in international diplomacy; and Nick, the youngest brother, a talented archaeologist playboy. In another world, Michael and Gabriel in the Royal Household of Yehovah, battling with their brother Lucifer who, having fallen during the great war in heaven, is eaten by jealousy and revenge. Little do the de Vere's know how their existence parallels that of their angelic counterparts.
The Third World War has just ended and the Ishtar Accord - a seven year denuclearisation treaty between Russia, the Pan Arab Union and Israel is due to be signed. Adrian de Vere is being hailed as the next JFK, having played a prominent part in the end of the war. In its aftermath, the brothers' high profiles capture the public's confidence and no one suspects the de Vere brothers unwittingly harbour a dark family secret which threatens the world as they see it. A meeting with a trusted family friend leads Nick to find himself drawn in to a conspiracy that reveals a terrifying family history and that the brothers are inextricably intertwined with Lucifer's plans for revenge.
