Family secrets rooted in WW2 conspiracies entangle two cousins in a web of murder and espionage while working for their uncle, retired Air Force Colonel Henry Archer.
Meet the Archers – A Trust Fund Family:
Henry Archer is a retired Air Force Colonel with a propensity to airsickness. His eccentricities and genius IQ make him as Winston Churchill would say, “a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.” He now uses his art and antique dealings to propagate his secret activities.
Edith Archer is Henry’s wife. An accomplished artist and musician, she is perhaps far more intelligent than her quirky behavior and comments indicate.
Gerard Humphries is the Archer’s butler and Henry’s best friend. A bit of a mystery himself, he seems to know all, see all, and be everywhere.
Jennifer Vincini is Henry and Edith’s niece. She is a worldwide fashion model who grew up in European boarding schools with very little parental involvement. She is the definition of sex appeal, finds men disposable, and always gets what she wants.
Parker Madison is Henry and Edith’s nephew and Jennifer’s cousin. Parker is a good guy who just wants to live a simple, godly life, but a desire to make a difference in the world keeps getting in the way.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Twenty-five years ago, the main characters came to me in a dream. I began developing them and wrote the book over the following year. I eventually decided the manuscript was crap and burned it. The characters kept popping back up in my head, so I finally committed to bringing the characters to life. Same title, different story line. I hope you like it.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Twenty-five years ago, the main characters came to me in a dream. I lived with them in my head realizing they were not going away until I brought them to life.
Simon Zachary picked up the invitation on his ebony wood, marble top desk and twirled it between his fingers. A sinister grin spread across his face in anticipation of the party — not because it was the social highlight of the year for the small town of Rolling Rivers but because he was eager to get inside the Archer mansion. Zachary swung his chair around and walked to the window. Living on the top floor of Rolling Rivers’ tallest building gave him an excellent view of the city in all directions, but his gaze fixed on the Archer estate across the river.
The mansion built by the late Samuel Archer rose four stories above ground — it was anybody’s guess what was below ground. The house stood tall atop a distant hill with windows wrapping around seemingly inviting anyone to take a peek inside. Tonight, like most nights, it was lit up like a twinkling, prized jewel — the perfect disguise for its many secrets.
Zachary rubbed his bearded chin, pondering if what he wanted was inside the house. Of course, that was a long shot. Keeping an object like that in your home, no matter how big the house wouldn’t be wise. But then if there were levels below ground, Colonel Henry Archer would likely have secret rooms and hiding places. Finding those would be a challenge for sure. But Zachary hoped the lively activity of the party would distract attention and facilitate his explorations.
