I had the privilege and honor of working with Colin on an early draft of this haunting novel and together we found his publisher, eLectio. For those who enjoy international intrigue and early twentieth century history with a taste of a brusque Scotland Yard detective! Much to love. The author has some great background material on the era, which as a historian I thoroughly enjoyed, and the story behind how he got started on The Man with the Black Box. Also interesting are videos and pictures of the places where the main parts of the story take place.

WHAT'S IN THE BOX?
EVERYONE'S DYING TO KNOW.
An international crisis threatens to plunge the world into war at the dawn of the Twentieth Century, but the British Foreign Office finds itself blinded by the bizarre deaths of crucial agents and informants as it struggles to stave off the coming conflagration. For help, they turn to an unconventional outsider, Inspector Jenkins of Scotland Yard, who soon finds himself on the trail of a mysterious man with a deadly black box and a host of devoted accomplices. Innocents transform into monsters. Men of God become agents of destruction. Good men rise from the flames of damnation to become soldiers in the coming apocalypse. The Man with the Black Box is a terrifying examination of the corruptibility of mankind, a riveting twist on the classic battle of good versus evil, and a fantasy thriller of historic proportions.
