Released: Silent Victor Paperback

At long last, Volume 4 of The Clarke Lantham Mysteries comes to paperback, featuring line drawings and new cover art by Kitty NicIaian.

A detective with insomnia chases every cop’s worst nightmare…

When a security guard disappears with a priceless Martian meteorite belonging to the Chinese government, and surveillance tapes show a commando team of gray aliens making the snatch, a surly security chief turns to the only agency that might take him seriously: Clarke Lantham Investigations.

After turning down another alien-hunting case earlier this week, Clarke Lantham wants nothing more to do with kooks, cranks, and crooks of any kind. But with a lawsuit, an assistant, and a new ward all chewing through his finances, he needs the paycheck.

Racing spies, assassins, insurance agents, and the FBI, Lantham must find the wandering watchman–and the treasure that went with him–before the theft escalates into a diplomatic flash point between the world’s fearsome superpowers and the alien overlords they allegedly support.

But even that might not bother Lantham…if he didn’t have to sleep on the couch.

View from Valhalla says of Silent Victor “…each Lantham is better than the last…Sawyer hits with the force of a .45 between the eyes.” Now you can find out what the fuss is about from the comfort of your armchair without the bother of a screen.

About the author

After a childhood in academia, J. Daniel Sawyer declared his independence by dropping out of high school and setting off on a series of adventures in the bowels of the film industry, the venture capital culture of silicon valley, surfing safaris, bohemians, burners, historians, theologians, adventurers, climbers, drug dealers, gangbangers, and inventors before his past finally caught up to him.

Trapped in a world bookended by one wall falling in Berlin and other walls going up around suburbia and along national borders throughout the world, he rediscovered his deep love of history and, with it, and obsession with predicting the future as it grew aggressively out of the past.

To date, this obsession has yielded over thirty books and innumerable short stories, the occasional short film, nearly a dozen podcasts stretching over a decade and a half, and a career creating novels and audiobooks exploring the world through the lens of his own peculiar madness, in the depths of his own private forest in a rural exile, where he uses the quiet to write, walk on the beach, and manage a production company that brings innovative stories to the ears of audiences across the world.
