CARDINAL BLACK is the seventh installment in the standalone historical thriller series featuring the exploits of Matthew Corbett, who has been called "the early American James Bond". In December of 1703, Corbett travels with a mad scientist's assistant to recover a potion book stolen by the mysterious Cardinal Black. This potion book is the only way to cure a young woman whose mind has been torn asunder by the scientist's experiments. To succeed, Corbett must find help in one of the most unlikely of places, and face the devastation that follows.

ROBERT MCCAMMON (pictured below from our Wall of Fame) is a Homeboy who has launched every title at the store since coming out of retirement in 2002. Like his fans around the world, we are thrilled that this New York Times best seller is again writing in his unique style that ultimately allows good to triumph over evil. He is best known for Boy's Life that is required reading in three out of every four high schools in America. Our staff is hooked on his Matthew Corbett series that we believe showcases the most exciting sleuth in fiction since Sherlock Holmes. Thank you Robert McCammon for signing our books.
