A Los Angeles detective must protect a young runaway whose memories of a mysterious ring she calls “the King’s X” have brought a killer from her distant past to her trail.

A Supernatural Thriller - King’s X: Anthology contains the first 3 Books - King’s X: Visions, Revelations, and Shepherds - Complete in one volume.

Long ago the King’s X was stolen from its makers. The Thief is still hunted to this day. There can be no escape, not even in death. Because to wear the King’s X, even once, is to know a forbidden secret. What we are does not die. We have all been here before, and we will all come back.

What’s it like?  Fast paced, thought-provoking Mixed-Genre: Modern Noir Thriller/ Contemporary Fantasy.  

“it is really like a modern, real-world twist on Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. It takes the previous ages of the earth notion… cuts away all the fantasy stuff and very convincingly brings the ring into our world. To Los Angeles, in fact.” Amazon Reader Review

“Terrific mixed genre… It’s a full-meal-deal. If you’re looking for dessert, skip this. It’s too satisfying by far, completely engaging from beginning to end.”  — NY Times and USA TODAY Bestselling Author, Tamara Rose Blodgett

The Story:

Wendell Book is a vice cop in Los Angeles. To him, Molly is just another runaway teenager with a crazy story. Something about a past life when she first encountered the cause of all her problems, a mysterious object she calls “the King’s X.” All he knows for sure is that there is a killer on her trail - a sinister figure she knows only as a “Shepherd” - and he’s leaving bodies in his wake. For Molly, Detective Book is the final clue to her riddle, and her only chance to survive long enough to solve it - the King’s X is hidden somewhere in Los Angeles, right where she left it, long before she was even born.

1296 A.D. In the dying days of the Crusades, a beautiful slave-girl finds herself trapped between two cultures and two very dangerous men - a brutal Templar knight, and a clever Moorish pirate. Together they must flee the blood-soaked Holy Land into unmapped Ethiopia. Behind, a sinister man hounds each step to protect a secret. Ahead, the King’s X, and the truth it will reveal.

More Praise for King’s X

“This is a ‘stand up and take notice’ story from a truly gifted writer. The most original adventure I’ve seen in years. “The Matrix” crossed with “The Da Vinci Code.” King’s X is dark, beautiful, and very provocative. I’ve had the story stuck in my head since the first time I read it.” — Ken Miller, Film and TV Producer

“Stephen T. Harper is a master of words. I stayed awake all night to finish, heart pounding, eyes bulging with every new twist, and the ending almost killed me! —The Paperback Pursuer

“This is a very well thought-out book with lots of suspense, twists, and history. I give it 5 stars. If you love a good suspense/thriller, you’ll love this book!” — Paranormal Opinion

This book has grabbed me. …really well written and I liked the author’s style. Big thumbs up!”  — Booked Up

“…starts out mid-action and doesn’t seem to slow down even when the author is describing delicate women in quiet moments with the men they care for… Pick up King’s X. You won’t be sorry.” — Into The Morning Reads
