Black Orchid Chronicles

COMING JUNE 3: Beware the Spider (2019)

Nature photographer Sebastian Arnett holds a terrible secret: He can kill with his thoughts, a curse placed on him by an ancient spider demon that controls when he can use the power.
Beware the SpiderB
His attempts to break the curse take him to a confrontation with a mysterious aboriginal in the Australian outback and then to the demon’s jungle home in Borneo.
Before he can crack the code, ruthless Chinese crime lords hear of his power and go searching for him, hoping to acquire the power. Afraid to tackle Sebastian directly, they kidnap the woman he loves and set off a wild train chase that ends in a battle of demons and leaves Sebastian powerless to confront the victor.

Book 1: The Mark of the Spider (2018)

Enduring a six-month assignment to photograph thousands of orchids in the highland wilderness of Borneo, nature photographer Sebastian Arnett finds himself bored and lonely, drowning sad memories of his dead wife in pools of alcohol. When an Australian intelligence agent invites him for weekend explorations of remoter corners of the jungles, he agrees, with deadly consequences.

After he accidentally kills the commander of a secret special operations group, members of the command go rogue intending to capture or kill Sebastian. He goes on the run … for his life.
