Ghosts of Gotham

The Ghosts of Gotham Saga: Book 1

Craig Schaefer

Irresistibly drawn to mysteries, if only to debunk them, reporter Lionel Page exposes supernatural frauds, swindlers, and charlatans. His latest case is an obsession--at least for an ancient and wealthy heiress: verify the authenticity of a lost Edgar Allan Poe manuscript circulating through New York City's literary underworld. But the shrewd Regina Dunkle offers more than money. It's a pact. Fulfill her request, and Lionel's own notorious buried past, one he's been running from since he was a child, will remain hidden.

As Lionel's quest begins, so do the warnings. And where rare books go, murder follows. It's only when Lionel meets enigmatic stranger Madison Hannah, his personal usher into the city's secret history, that he realizes he's being guided by a force more powerful than logic... and that he isn't just following a story. He is the story.

Now that the true purpose of his mission is revealing itself in the most terrifying ways, it may finally be time for Lionel to believe in the unbelievable.

A Time for Witches

The Ghosts of Gotham Saga: Book 2

Craig Schaefer

Once upon a time, Lionel Page didn't believe in magic.

That was before his odyssey to New York City, and the quest for a lost manuscript that ended in mysteries, murder, and the buried secrets of his own past. He used to be a professional skeptic. Now he's a witch in the service of Hekate, chasing myths across the heartland of a haunted America.

The reappearance of a hero from Greek legend is just one sign of the coming storm. There are Amazons on the highway, and death-spirits lurking in cheap roadside motels. And Madison, Lionel's lover, is on a mission of her own. A mission, fueled by vengeance, to slay a man who can't be killed: her ex-husband. If Lionel doesn't catch up with her in time, neither of them will survive.

In Ghosts of Gotham, Lionel Page opened his eyes to the real world. Now he has to fight to protect it.

The Hungry Dreaming

The Ghosts of Gotham Saga: Book 3

Craig Schaefer

The discovery of lost letters between Alexander Hamilton and George Washington, describing historical events that never happened, sends shockwaves through the academic world. Meanwhile, a citywide surveillance program is coming to New York on a groundswell of dirty money and dead bodies. To hard-nosed Brooklyn reporter Nell Bluth, the two mysteries couldn't be more different.

Then she finds the missing link. Seelie Rose, a transgender runaway and the eyewitness to a murder, has a priceless secret in her pocket and a ruthless assassin on her trail. Nell and her partner Tyler are drawn into a centuries-old vendetta, a conspiracy dating back to the Revolutionary War...and witchcraft.

A secret war is raging on the streets of New York. It's a battle to control the narrative of history itself, and the winner rewrites the world. Three unlikely heroes will have to outrun and outwit every obstacle in their path; with time running out, they're the last hope to save the past, the present, and the future. And if they can't, they won't live to see tomorrow.

The Wise Men of Gotham

The Ghosts of Gotham Saga: Book 4

Craig Schaefer

When a daughter of Hekate is gunned down outside a Brooklyn bodega, reprisal comes by moonlight: one by one, the victims of a spreading curse fall into a deep sleep, lost in inescapable visions. And their numbers are growing.

Seelie Rose knows a thing or two about visions. As a fledgling witch and the inheritor of a magical legacy, it's her duty to watch over the dreamscape of New York City. Usually that means battling errant nightmares; now she's facing down alien intelligences, incursions from other realms, and the dawning suspicion that she isn't the only dream-witch in town.

Meanwhile, creatures of the night are turning up dead, and the ghoul princess lurking in Seelie's closet wants a favor. Not the kind she can refuse, unless she wants to be next on the princess's macabre menu. If Seelie plays her cards just right, she may uncover a conspiracy, stop a deadly plot, and least until graduation.
