About the Author

David Chacko is the author of five novels--Price, Gage, Brick Alley, The Black Chamber and White Gamma. He divides his time between the state of Florida and the city of Istanbul.

More About the Author

David Chacko has written twenty-some acclaimed novels. Many are in the espionage and mystery genres with occasional outbreaks into common sense. Those outbreaks are his historical novels. They are finely tuned tales of various eras and wide ranging places.

David can usually be found in Istanbul or New York. The consistent factor is that both places have good food, beautiful women, and memorable views of the sea. His novels have much the same range as his life, moving between the Americas and Europe to the Middle East with stops at points between.

Espionage Novels -- Less than a Shadow, The Peacock Angel, Echo Five (the Jason Ender series), The Black Chamber, White Gamma, Red Bishop One (the Stephen Warfield series), and Gage.

Crime Novels -- Graveyard Eyes, Devil's Feathers, (the Inspector Levent series), The God App, A Long Way from Eden, Brick Alley

Historical Novels -- Gone Over, The Brimstone Papers (the Israel Potter series), The Severan Prophecies, The Byzantium Stone, Like A Man, The Satan Machine

Miscellaneous -- The Shadow Master, Martyr's Creek, Price

Format: Paperback
David Chacko's new novel is an exciting piece of work that succeeds in doing everything it says it will. And that's plenty. The Shadow Master takes place after the fall of the Berlin Wall. It begins as an espionage story that becomes a novel of politics and finally ends in a shakey walk along the bridge between the living and the dead. The action and horror are well set up as the tale unwinds from its central event--the death of an archeologist, Karel Zeman. His brother Klement, a spy come in from the cold, conducts an investigation that inevitably leads to the discovery of Karel's secret life--a beautiful woman who haunted his last days in Budapest; a mistress in Prague; an object of fantastic value unearthed in an ancient castle; and the man of great wealth and greater cruelty who emerges from behind the curtain at last. How does The Shadow Master end? Not where it began, and not with characters who have the same perceptions that they held in the beginning. By that time, the miraculous has become the expected and the dead a part of the living past.

Format: Paperback
After the fall of communism in Eastern Europe, Klement Zeman, an intelligence officer, comes home to find his brother dead in a strange hotel room. The "natural" death quickly becomes mysterious as Klement begins a furious hunt through the wreckage of the old system and the chaos of his brother's life. Beautiful women, invaluable treasure, angry spirits of the dead, archeological digs and mass murderers, are just some of the things he encounters. They all fall by the side of the road when Klement comes to the end of his journey in the New Europe on the verge of a New Millennium.

THE SHADOW MASTER is an almost perfect book. This one should have Six Stars.

Format: Paperback
In May, 1990, Klement Zeman left The Horn of Africa for Hungary. There, he would identify his brother's body and transport it to its final resting place. Karel, the brother, had been an archeologist. His site was a crypt in Hrad Luchov, near the boundary of Moravia and Slovakia. Karel had found something at the site that had changed his life completely. A life that somehow ended in a high class hotel of Budapest.
Dangerous people were after what Karel had found, "The Vigesimal Hours" and the hosts! The book was "illuminated" (painted) by one known only as The Shadow Master. Within it were prophecies. Revelations. It told of The Second Coming!
Klement simply wanted to know how his brother had come to die in a hotel that was way above his financial means. The question leads Klement on a quest of epic proportions.
**** This is one of those books that begins with a mysterious death and several questions, then steadily builds up steam until everything explodes at the end! Very climatic! In a few spots, I found myself fascinated and repulsed at the same time. Recommended reading. ****
