Legendary comics writer Steve Englehart returns to the adventures of Max August in "The Arena Man," the fourth novel in his fantasy thriller series.Max August was once a regular guy, before he learned the ways of magick and immortality and became a staunch crusader against the supernatural forces of evil. Though immune to the effects of time, Max is not indestructible, and now he must face the vast, worldwide conspiracy known as the Necklace.Max has only a few allies in this fight among them: Pam, an apprentice in the alchemical arts, and Vee, a chanteuse with an uncanny knack for all things magick. But the Necklace is plotting a massive catastrophe fueled by the magical power of a demonic entity; using Black Ops helicopters to massacre tens of thousands of spectators in a domed stadium, re-awakening terrorist fears and destabilizing the U.S. government. Max will need all his magick, and all the help he can get, for him to have any chance to thwart the attack and survive to fight another day.

Review quote

"Long before Buffy and Angel took up the good fight, long before Dresden began his Files, Max August was out there all alone, our point man in keeping the mundane world safe from the supernatural one."
--Bill Willingham, bestselling author of "Fables""Steve Englehart has created a series of rip-roaring, page-turning, pulp tomes. Think J. K. Rowling meets Ian Fleming. Become an Alchemist! Read Max August!"
--Brad Rader, Emmy Award-winning animation artist
