A serial killer is on the loose in San Francisco. Only when Lieutenant Larry Foggia is assigned to the case does the true horror of the killer's motive come to light. A ritual killer – nicknamed 'Satan' – stalks the city, killing in terrible ways with no apparent motive. Enter Lieutenant Foggia who, assisted by a spiritualist medium, must discover the reason for the slayings. But the truth he unearths is beyond anything he's encountered in the real world – for the killings are paving the way for a force so powerful that the lives of a few innocents will appear unimportant in comparison... Featuring several of Masterton's favourite themes, such as spiritualism and demonology, Black Angel moves at a fast pace from the stomach-churning opening to the exciting final confrontation between man and demon. 'One of the most original and frightening storytellers of our time' PETER JAMES. 'A true master of horror' JAMES HERBERT.

In this first full-scale biography of the artist Robert Hughes called "a kind of Bridge of Sighs between Surrealism and America," Nouritza Matossian charts the life of Arshile Gorky, one of the most mysterious of major twentieth-century artists. Born in Armenia, he survived the Turkish genocide begun in 1915 and arrived in America in 1920. One of the first abstract expressionists, he was a major influence on the New York art scene, which included de Kooning, Rothko, Pollock, and others. After a devastating series of illnesses, injuries, and personal setbacks, he committed suicide at the age of 46. In Black Angel, Nouritza Matossian uses for the first time Gorky's original letters in Armenian and other new source material, writing with authority and insight about the powerful influence Gorky's Armenian heritage had upon his painting. She also provides an informed and important critique of the entire body of Gorky's major work.

Paris, Frankreich. Im Jahr 2003. Ein Serienkiller, erstmals durch die Pariser Zeitung La Vitesse-Lumiere 'Black Angel' getauft, mordet seit nunmehr fast zwei Monaten. Aus dem Nichts taucht er auf wie ein Phantom und sucht sich seine Opfer aus der Adelsschicht. Einen sichtbaren Verbindungspunkt zwischen den Opfern gibt es jedoch nicht. Die Pariser Tageszeitung wirft demnach schon nach dem zweiten Mord die Vermutung auf, es handele sich bei diesen Serienmorden um einen Killer, der aller Voraussicht nach ein Gegner des Adelsstandes zu sein scheint. Die Polizei kommt keinen Schritt weiter. Nicht nur der Hochadel, sondern auch die Presse setzt die Pariser Polizei massiv unter Druck. Ihr wird totale Unfahigkeit vorgeworfen, was Inspektor Leon Dumas in deren Artikeln am hartesten zu spuren bekommt. Erst der vierte Mord bringt Bewegung ins Spiel. Aber was hat Isabelle Dion damit zu tun? Um dies herauszufinden, sucht sie Dumas in deren Wohnung auf. Dort trifft er ganz unerwartet auf David Fort, einen ihm verhassten Ex-Polizisten. Trotz seiner Aversion ihm gegenuber begibt sich Dumas gemeinsam mit Fort auf die Suche, um die Identitat und das Motiv des Killers aufzudecken. Doch welches Geheimnis birgt seine Vergangenheit? Sex, Lugen, Intrigen? Oder gar Liebe? Ein Wettlauf mit der Zeit beginnt.
