Путь из варяг в греки всегда манил регента Олега, побратима конунга Рюрика и наставника его единственного сына Ингвара, известного как княжич Игорь. Завоевание Царьграда, столицы Византии, превратилось в цель всей его жизни, и свои мечты он передал воспитаннику. Мечтой о покорении Царьграда Олег заразил и славян. На этом пути и Олег, и Игорь, и сын Игоря Святослав столкнулись с заговором влиятельных воевод, потомков викингов. Киевский престол интересовал их гораздо больше, чем несбыточная иллюзия…

Prohibition means two things in the Border city of Windsor, Ontario: big business, and big trouble. Book #1 – Riverside Drive Jack McCloskey returned to Windsor, Ontario, from the Great War lost in a battle with his inner demons. When he channels his energy into amateur fights, he's noticed by a gangster moonlighting as a boxing promoter. After a brief professional stint, Jack is invited to join the crew in the early days of Prohibition along the Detroit River. Book #2 – Maiden Lane It's the winter of 1923 and the border towns are under a deep freeze. As if the police didn't have their hands full, drug-smuggling, human trafficking, and a grisly find in the river steer them into unfamiliar territory, and a whisper of the occult brings a wholly unexpected twist. Book #3 – Prospect Avenue For bootleggers like Jack McCloskey, Prospect Avenue is just another dead end, and not even one of the better ones, but at least it’s away from prying eyes. But Jack is about to learn that what goes on in the shadows isn’t at all as “nice” as what he does, as the trade in opium – and people – picks up in Windsor. Includes Riverside Drive Maiden Lane Prospect Avenue

Someone is digging up the graves at the Strangers’ Burying Ground in Toronto – the final resting place of criminals, vagrants, indigents, and alcoholics – and the only person who seems to care is the sexton, Morgan Spicer. The authorities are unconcerned; after all, for years the growing village of Yorkville has been clamouring to have the bodies moved and the Burying Ground closed. <br> <br> The distraught Spicer enlists the aid of his old friend Thaddeus Lewis, who has unexpectedly returned to preaching on the Yonge Street Circuit. The graveyard’s secrets lead Lewis and his son Luke into the hidden heart of 1851 Toronto where they discover a trail of corruption and blackmail tied to an old sexual scandal and a dangerous enemy intent on vengeance.

London: the early 1840s. The birth of the young Queen Victoria's first child is taken as an auspicious sign for all. But on a cold March night, a spree of dark crimes in shadowy workhouses shocks the city.<br> <br> When Inspector Owen Endersby, of the recently formed London Detective Police, learns that the string of identical murders and abductions have all taken place under similar circumstances, he fears a monster is prowling the city. How long until the murderer strikes again? Is this the work of a diabolical killer, or a madman with confused motives? Facts are scarce. Endersby and his sergeant, Thomas Caldwell, must start an investigation based on the fitful testimonies of terrified girls and one peculiar clue: a piece of curtain lace found in the throats of the victims.
