Overview
J.J. Jones and the Hawk is a flamboyant fantasy adventure in the tradition of the 1930s pulps. When J.J.'s father is shot in a mine in Jerome, Arizona, J.J. must use her supernatural powers as a medium and clairvoyant to find his attacker. She only later comes to realize that she might just be saving the world in the bargain. In the course of her investigation, she teams up with Winston Churchill, Babe Ruth, Satchel Paige, and her spirit mentor, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. She also teams up with her on-again, off-again boyfriend, the barnstorming pilot, Lindy McCall, a man Sir Arthur despises. Together, they solve a mystery that extends from the bowels of the earth to Nazi Germany to a faraway planet in another galaxy.
Description
J.J. Jones and the Hawk (Lindy McCall) go in search of the mysterious ghost globe, an ancient artifact that can change the future of the earth. En route, they encounter such flamboyant personages as Winston Churchill, Harry Houdini, Babe Ruth, Satchel Paige, and, of course, Sir Arthur himself (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, noted spiritualist and author of the Sherlock Holmes tales). This fast-paced, often humorous novel contains most of the old pulp magazine genres all wrapped up in an enjoyable package to be opened at any time of the year. If you enjoy old-fashioned story telling, you'll certainly enjoy this. Otherwise, Sir Arthur might pay you a visit, and he can be a bit of a rogue.
