The Plain Man

(A book in the Max August Magikal Thrillers series)
A novel by

Magick and reality collide in The Plain Man, Steve Englehart's new, fast-paced Max August thriller.

Max August is not invulnerable, but he never ages - a gift he earned while studying under the legendary alchemist Cornelius Agrippa. August, now an alchemist himself, is using his magickal abilities to fight the right-wing conspiracy known as the FRC, which seeks to control all aspects of society. At the top of the FRC is a nine-member cabal, each member of which is a powerful force in one area of society, such as media, politics, finance... and wizardry.

When Max learns that two members of the cabal are en route to Wickr, a Burning Man - like festival held in the American Southwest, he stages a plan to gather information from them and, he hopes turn one member against the others. Max has been careful not to leave a trail, but the cabal sees all, and an "accident" at a nuclear waste facility just 100 miles from the festival would send a clear message to those who oppose the FRC. Max may be timeless, but he is running out of time to stop the FRC and save millions of lives.
