But evil doesn’t need to take a breather, and now the Vatican is back on his doorstep asking for help.
A nearby monastery has been desecrated and the exorcist monks murdered in the most brutal ways imaginable. A legion of demons is gathering for something big, and Tommy’s the saint they need to help.
An old enemy is the ally he needs, but can Tommy trust him? Can they track down all of the demons in time?
And what does the Necronomicon have to do with it all?
Detective Thomas Nolan has finally returned home. In typical police fashion, he is welcomed home with a murder case and gunfire.
After one arrest goes spectacularly wrong, Tommy is assigned another case and another dead body.
But everything goes wrong from the start of the case. The deceased is a member of a nearby military base, and no one wants to answer his questions. A local bodega gives him mind-splitting headaches. Worst of all, someone is after his children.
To make matters worse -- Tommy no longer has his charisms.
Detective Tommy Nolan NYPD is no longer a detective. In fact, three years after the events of Coven, Nolan has actually been promoted to Lieutenant. That means that life has been much less exciting for a while. Rather than walking the streets and getting shot at by everything from street gangs to reanimated zombies, Nolan now spends more time at his desk, keeping the department together, making sure procedures are followed and ensuring that internal affairs investigations are conducted as they should be. While Tommy is normally more of a hands-on person, the slower life agrees with him since he’s over the hill now and has started to feel age creeping up on him. Put that together with the fact that his oldest son Jeremy and his not-officially-adopted daughter Lena are in Europe to visit an old friend, and things are as calm as they could be.
That is, until he and Bokor Baracus are sent to Texas to investigate a child trafficking operation which the Texas Rangers are about to bust. While it might seem odd that an NYPD Lt would be sent to Texas for any reason, Lt. Nolan is no ordinary cop. He’s been gifted every saintly charism you can think of, from flying to literally smelling evil. Over the course of his adventures, he’s picked up a couple of other accessories: a ring with an antediluvian artifact, powered by the spiritual energy around it; and a suit of armor made from the pieces of fallen golems. He’s also run afoul of a great many politicians by taking down a death cult masquerading as a women’s health clinic and unmasking a mayor who turned out to be a warlock. So any chance his bosses have to send Nolan away on assignment as part of the NYPD’s intelligence department is welcomed.
As so often happens when Nolan is involved, nothing is as it seems. Rather than busting a child trafficking ring, Nolan and Baracus uncover an international trafficking and terrorism ring run by the former Jesuit who had been running the show in Coven to turn people into ectoplasmic monsters to carry on his anti-Christian jihad. With the help of Texas Ranger, Lloyd Lerman, Nolan and Baracus set off to Europe, following the trail. Along the way, the saintly lieutenant learns that his son and Lena haven’t been going to school and visiting friends like he thought. Instead, thanks to Jeremy’s training and Lena’s telekinesis, they’ve been working for the CIA, hunting Antifa cells involved in black magic.
Together, they make a formidable force. Yet, for long time fans of the saintly policeman, it will be no surprise that the battle is never an easy one–even when you literally have Hellfire missiles at your beck and call.
He might be on his last crusade
Still working abroad, Detective Tommy Nolan has a hot tip that leads him to Germany. Women and children are disappearing from Catholic Bavaria. The local police have their hands tied. Tommy is the last hope for answers.
Yet again, Tommy is in over his head. What starts as a sex trafficking ring turns into a terrorist conspiracy to unleash Hell on Europe. To stop it, Tommy must fight Nazi vampires, terrorists, and a swarm of succubi who want him as their next meal. Tommy has always crusaded for justice. But now he might be on his last crusade.
London is alive with the sound of shadows.
When Tommy Nolan was sent abroad to avoid being made a saint too soon, he thought he'd be a glorified tourist. But when an impossible prehistoric artifact the Vatican is looking at is stolen from the British Museum, they do the first thing that comes to mind -- they call the cops.
But Tommy is soon convinced that the artifact is more than it seems. The crime scene looks like a war zone. The owners of the stolen merchandise eye him with suspicion. His new partner has a shady, mysterious past. The police are ready to arrest him. The city itself seems primed to explode.
Worst of all, the darkness itself is closing in on Tommy, the city, and everyone who lives there.
But Tommy isn't one to curse the darkness. The darkness curses him.
