The History of Things to Come When Blake discovers a mysterious set of notes penned by Isaac Newton, he becomes the target of a world-shattering conspiracy. Caught in the crosshairs of two sadistic hitmen, Blake is propelled into a breathtaking race through London and its dark historical secrets. With time running out, he must solve Newton's deadly puzzle before the world is plunged into a catastrophe of biblical proportions. 2. The Devil's Architect Driven by unearthly visions, a convicted killer escapes from a maximum-security psychiatric hospital. Days later, a woman is ritualistically murdered in the grounds of a mysterious London church. When a Roman coin is discovered under the victim's skin, the police turn to Blake for help. Nothing can prepare him for what he has to face, because the church is not what it seems … as it has been designed by the Devil's Architect. 3. The Logos Code After a respected Freemason is found executed in a mysterious Templar cave, Blake is called in to solve the baffling case. When a second Freemason is murdered, Blake discovers a coded letter written by London's genius architect Christopher Wren that draws him into a deadly world of forbidden knowledge and veiled histories. In a frantic battle against time, Blake and an unlikely ally must crack Wren's "Logos" code before a ruthless enemy unleashes hell on earth.
