What AMAZON is saying...

Award winning author, screenwriter,
director, producer Kenneth Johnson
has been mesmerizing audiences with
his wholly original speculative fiction
work for over forty years. He is the
creator of the ground-breaking and
influential original miniseries V,
producer of
The Six Million Dollar Man
and creator such Emmy-winning
iconic shows as
The Bionic Woman,
The Incredible Hulk
and Alien Nation.

Now Johnson brings his creative
genius and storytelling gifts to an
ambitious undertaking: an epic,
super-natural mystery thriller rooted in
one of the great untold legends of
human history. Here is a unique blend
of gripping action, intriguing
characters, cinematic scenes and a
narrative interwoven throughout
centuries of historical fact.

The novel is set in contemporary New
York City on New Years weekend, 2001
but with flashes back two millennia to
the ancient Holy Land and even further
into the primal myths of
Paradise Lost.  

A troubled young female tabloid
reporter  discovers an impossibility: a
cursed man who apparently cannot die
and who has profoundly affected the
course of human history for 2000
years.  She learns that he is being
sought by a feisty 85-year-old UN
envoy consumed by wistful memories
of her long-ago romance with him, but
also relentlessly pursued by an
ambitious priest - the latest of many
Vatican pursuers over the centuries.

Most dangerous of all is an ominous
stranger who haunts the hero and will
draw him, plus all those who care for
him and thousands of others into a
nightmare confrontation with the
ultimate evil.

Told in the first-person by many
different eyewitnesses - including the
reporter, the elderly woman, a
mixed-race street kid/graffiti artist, a
country singer, a Japanese taxi driver,
a Latina child, the obsessed priest and
the hero himself - THE MAN OF
LEGENDS is a complex and
multi-layered novel that is both a
riveting thriller and a shrewd
examination of the way our actions
affect others.

Heart-rending romance, unrelenting
suspense and a jaw-dropping climax
make this novel a must-read this
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY: "One of the most anticipated novels for this summer."
