Private Investigator Ashton Ford has special powers, powers that some call supernatural. A former naval intelligence officer, highly knowledgeable in cryptology and philosophy, Ford will shatter your ideas of reality and take you into a mystical world of vision, intuition, and psychic truth. A phenomenal psychic, unparalleled lover, and a true Renaissance man, Ashton Ford can see into the future and even into the distant past using his psychic powers to assist special clients who are in crisis.
In this first book of Don Pendleton’s six book series, Ashes to Ashes, Ashton Ford is hired by a beautiful and vulnerable heiress in need of a sexual surrogate. Ignoring danger signals, Ford cannot resist the chance to aid the distressed woman, but soon finds he is faced with more than he bargained for. In his search for justice, he is plunged into a world of untold dangers, including murder and mayhem, ghosts and apparitions, and splintered reality.
Don Pendleton wrote this about his Ashton Ford novels: "Through this character I attempt to understand more fully and to give better meaning to my perceptions of what is going on here on Planet Earth, and the greatest mystery of all the mysteries: the why of existence itself. Through Ford I use everything I can reach in the total knowledge of mankind to elaborate this mystery and to arm my characters for the quest. I try to entertain myself with their adventures, hoping that what entertains me may also entertain others–so these books, like life itself, are not all grim purpose and trembling truths. They are fun to write; for some they will be fun to read."
