About Joseph Lallo
A native of Bayonne, NJ - the fabled birthplace of George R. R. Martin - Joseph Lallo is an unlikely entry into the world of literature. After a childhood spent daydreaming and reading, he fully intended to pursue a career in the tech sector. He received a Master's Degree in Computer Engineering from NJIT, and subsequently got a job working IT for a large healthcare corporation. Things changed when, in January 2010, his friends finally convinced him to publish the story that had accumulated over the course of a decade of spare time. That story, now known as the Book of Deacon Trilogy, was a surprise hit, and once he got a taste of the world of indie writing, he was hooked. Now he is a full-time author, and co-host of the Six Figure Authors Podcast.

Fel and the other Maskers knew recovering the gifts of the past was worth the danger, so long as they could keep the worst of the bygone contraptions out of the wrong hands. They couldn’t have predicted a wave of violence beyond Beffshire’s walls would summon a powerful inspector. Now he is convinced the Maskers are hiding something.
Unfortunately for them, he’s right.
But there is something shady about this inspector. Letting him claim their inventory might not simply destroy their legacy, it might deliver powerful and unpredictable artifacts directly into the clutches of forces with sinister aims.
Time is running out to thwart the inspector. How can Fel hide a shop full of goods right under the nose of the man with the power and authority to seize them?
One thing is certain: This will be quite a caper.
