Yep. Good news!

u guys r nuts. it's fantastic news yes but come on jan 2010 feels like a year away.

jay u tease n mock us by posting that cover so early on. i'm enjoying the art direction of late. simple yet effective.

can't wait... yet still... I can't wait. patience is a virtue. unlike music that eventually leaks to the internet we all must be partient for the next epic tale.

mephisto will appear again I just know it. but when remains ur surprise.

I need to check the site more often, this is great news! I'm getting Special X withdrawals.

Hmmm, knowing Slade's penchant for the surprise twist, I'm going to predict that the killer has a bad kidney injury.

Read the first chapter today. Seems like it should be quite a treat based on the opening sequence. I also like how the plot will seemingly involve the Olympics given the release date!

Too cool!!

Mephisto's Return!!

Postby e_taylor » Sat Jul 25, 2009 2:44 pm

From the Publisher:

The 2010 Winter Olympics are coming to Vancouver, and Mephisto is ready to strike.

Of all the villains lawyer Michael Slade has created based on his experience in more than one hundred real-life murder cases, Mephisto is the maddest. ("Slade knows psychos inside out."- Toronto Star)

A raging winter storm and a team of mercenaries have cut Whistler Mountain off from the rest of the world. Bent on bloody revenge, Mephisto attacks the members of Special X-the psycho hunters of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police-and that's just the start of his horrific plan. Red Snow is a three-ring circus of mystery, horror, and suspense. It has everything: whodunits and impossible crimes, psychological terror and police procedure. Let the games begin!

I want it now. Our own band of mercenaries will set forth.

But surely that release has given us too much info.
We cannot spoil the chase given to us by slade.

At least someone was able to make good use of the Olympics coming to Vancouver...

The new book sounds great, I can't wait to get my hot little hands on it.
