Long ago Molly learned the truth. Death is impermanent. We all come back, over and over again. She also learned that this knowledge is forbidden. We can believe whatever we like, but the only true crime is to remember who and what we really are.

“I stayed up all night to finish, eyes bulging and heart pounding with every new twist!” — The Paperback Pursuer

What’s inside?  ”A Beach-read with Brains.”  Expect mystery, strong characters, twist after twist, and cliffhangers of all kinds.  Modern suspense, Historical Fiction, and Contemporary Fantasy blend to create a new myth about the nature of life and death.
“King’s X belongs to that rare breed of books whose seemingly high-concept premise in fact shields a tightly crafted and deeply affecting story. Harper expertly balances character and conspiracy in a universe that will grab you from the very first chapter.” — Line Zero Magazine 

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, 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. And if I have anything to say about it, it’s going to make a tremendous feature film.” 
— 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! I haven’t been that surprised by an ending since Dumbledore took a surprise dive from Hogwarts.” 
—The Paperback Pursuer 

“Wow…justwow. Harper really understands language. … 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 

“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.”
