The 6 Messiahs
Written by Mark Frost.
Ten years have passed since Doyle first met the brilliant Jack Sparks and together they cracked the deadly case of The List of 7. Inspired by his friend, Doyle went on to create Sherlock Holmes, the celebrated man. Now off to America for his first book tour, Doyle is joined by a cryptic Irish priest. During their voyage across the Atlantic, the men are stalked by an otherworldly order of assassins attempting to steal a precious piece of the ship's cargo: a priceless book of ancient mysticism.
The Book of Zohar is the first piece of a lethal puzzle that will draw Doyle across the burgeoning young nation. From the filthy slums of lower Manhattan to the dark alleys of Chicago to a final apocalyptic confrontation in the searing Arizona desert, Doyle and his companions track the paths of six mysterious strangers who are united by a single, eerie dream. A dream of a black tower rising out of a wasteland - and a river of blood. As their trails converge at the source of this terrifying vision, Doyle and company confront an evil so dark and profound that it threatens to obliterate the very fabric of the world.

Before I Wake
Written by Mark Frost under the pseudonym of Eric Bowman.
A brillian novelist with a murderous past torments a New York City detective in this highly original thriller set in Manhattan and Miami.
National TV news anchor Mackenzie Dennis takes a dive from his Upper East Side apartment, and his suicide seems confirmed by the videotaped message he leaves behind - until homicide detective Jimmy Montone examines the tape and discovers the shadow of a hangman's noose on the wall. Piecing together the evidence, Montone proves the anchorman didn't jump; he was pushed. The case swerves unexpectedly closer to home when a beautiful model intimate with Montone is found hanged, having left behind a similar taped suicide message.
When retired Scotland Yard inspector Peter Henshaw contacts Montone to warn him about Terence Keyes, the British writer who had been riding along with the detective to research a book on police procedure, Montone is at first incredulous. But troubling secrets from Keyes's past mesh with what Montone knows about the "suicide" murderer. Could the polished, genteel Keyes be the killer? Or is Henshaw simply a zealous retiree with too much time on his hands?
Montone is left to puzzle it out, unaware that he himself is the killer's ultimate target.
Before I Wake is a psychological study in suspense, a tour de force as diabolically clever as the killer at its center. ISBN number 0-399-14263-0. Before I Wake is out of print but can usually be found used from
