The legendary Cross of Baal surfaces in this humorous caper of strange happenings and love gone astray.

Roly O'Leary, on an antique buying trip to Bordum Grove, Tennessee, discovers the mysterious cross, stumbling headlong into a secret society of assassins. He loses both the relic and his heart to Gumby, a college dean's young assistant. The enigmatic beauty holds the cross for ransom, challenging dangerous adversaries: the wonderfully terrible Mr. Pimm and his rookie hitman, Kenny. Can Roly thwart the evil Mr. Pimm and rescue Gumby?

Colorful characters encounter the artifact that legend claims has the power to fulfill its owners innermost desire. Does the fabled Celtic cross possess magical powers or is it a hoax with a dubious history?

Author Jon Cory continues a grand tradition of storytelling where characters are lovable rascals; the damsels are sexy as they are duplicitous, and the magic might be true. His blend of real and twisted history creates a fun-filled escapade.

Jon's previous novel, A Plague of Scoundrels, won an IPPY Silver Medal for popular fiction and Honorable Mention in the London Book Festival.
