Description

Twenty-something bartender Jason Bishop's world is shattered when his estranged father commits suicide, but the greater shock comes when he learns his father was a secret agent in the employ of the Invisible Hand, an ancient society of spies wielding magic in a centuries-spanning war. Now the Golden Dawn, the shadowy cabal of witches and warlocks responsible for Daniel Bishop's murder and for the death of Jason's mother years before, have Jason in their sights. His survival will depend on mastering his own dormant magic abilities, providing he makes it through the training.

From New York to Paris and to world between worlds, Jason's journey through the realm of magic will be fraught with peril. But with enemies and allies on both sides of this war, whom can he trust? The Invisible Hand, who have been more of a family than his own family ever was? The Golden Dawn, who may know the secrets behind his mysterious lineage?

For Jason Bishop, only one thing is for certain: the magic he has slowly been mastering is telling him not to trust anybody.

        July 17, 2017
        A 30-year-old man discovers that his estranged father was actually a “Mage in the service of the Invisible Hand” in Abraham’s uneven first novel, a fantasy thriller. Bartender Jason Bishop returns home to Cold Spring, N.Y., to bury his father, Daniel, who apparently leapt to his death from the roof of the Four Seasons restaurant in Manhattan. At the funeral, a reunion with a lost love adds to Jason’s regrets about his relationship with his father, and things take an odd turn when he’s confronted in the funeral home’s restroom by a stranger who vanishes, leaving behind only a playing card. The stranger, Carter Block, reappears at Jason’s upper Manhattan workplace and reveals Daniel’s real name and identity—and that he was murdered. Carter also discloses the reason for the murder: Daniel (who was really Damon King) “was attempting to acquire something of great value... that could shift the balance in an age-old conflict” between supernatural beings. Abraham writes with a certain wistful charm, but genre fans may feel that they’ve seen all this before—and better. Agent: Jodi Reamer, Writers House.
