The Avenger: Roaring Heart of the Crucible

The Avenger is back! Now available direct from Moonstone, and in stock very soon at Amazon and B&N.

The greatest crime-fighter of the 40’s returns in a third thrilling collection of original action-packed tales of adventure, intrigue, and revenge.

Life was bliss for millionaire adventurer Richard Henry Benson until that fateful day crime and greed took away his wife and young daughter…and turned him into something more than human.

Driven by loss, compelled by grief, he becomes a chilled impersonal force of justice, more machine than man, dedicated to the destruction of evildoers everywhere. His frozen face and pale eyes, like a polar dawn, only hint at the terrible force the underworld heedlessly invoked upon itself the day they created…The Avenger! 

I'm thrilled to be back for this third volume, penning a tale of one of my all-time favorite pulp heroes. My "According to Plan of a One-Eyed Trickster," rounds out the storyline which kicked off in "Death and the Countess" and continued in "Happy Death Men" (in Moonstone's first and second Avenger anthologies), and once again features The Avenger and Co. teaming up with the Domino Lady!
