"Readers met Five Lowrey in The Thirteen—a story of life, love, intrigue, and death on Ohio University’s campus in the Fifties.  Sphinxes followed Five into the Army’s Counterintelligence Corps and the world of spies.  His first case took him to France’s Dordogne Valley with its medieval castles, prehistoric caves—and a beautiful Sureté agent who helped him terminate an assassin and find a missing CIC agent.
In The Lazarus Pit, Five resumes civilian life as an art professor at Seneca University in West Virginia.  Immersed in the college scene of the Sixties Five becomes involved in the pursuit of radicals who threaten national security.  Exciting adventure follows as West Virginia’s pits and caves play a major role in the radical movement.  And of course Five’s romances continue, with new faces adding interest to the spectrum of former loves."
